How to Get Honeymoon Legs
Wedding season is in full swing and if your big day is right around the corner, it’s time to get those honeymoon legs whipped into shape for the occasion. Honeymoon legs are smooth, sexy legs that will give you confidence to flaunt your favorite two piece while you are relaxing on the beach with your new significant other. If you are worried about your beach vacation because of unsightly, painful spider or varicose veins, Dr. Lev at Advanced Varicose Vein Treatments of Manhattan has the treatments you need.
The Cosmetic Nuisance
Spider and varicose veins can be a cosmetic nuisance to say the least. Spider veins create visible networks of vessels on the skin’s surface and can appear just about anywhere on the leg. These networks consist of a pattern of red, blue or purple lines that resemble a spider’s web. In some cases, the networks can grow quite large, making you very self-conscious about appearing in public in anything other than long pants or a maxi skirt.
Varicose veins are more common on the lower leg and can become even more prominent than spider veins. These swollen vessels may be blue, purple or flesh-colored and often protrude above the skin’s surface. Varicose veins can also lead to skin discoloration, creating even more of a cosmetic concern as you pack up your beach attire for honeymoon time.
Unfortunately, the cosmetic embarrassment may not be the only thing that threatens to put a damper on your honeymoon plans. Those visible vessels can also be accompanied by uncomfortable symptoms, including leg heaviness, aching and swelling from the lower leg to the foot. The symptoms may make it difficult for you to enjoy much sightseeing on your honeymoon trip, as walking and standing may exacerbate the symptoms. Even walking the aisle and standing for your ceremony could be uncomfortable and detract from your big day!
The good news is even if your wedding is coming up soon, it’s not too late to indulge in a vein treatment that will get your legs in shape for the ceremony and honeymoon trip. We offer a wide range of vein treatments that allow us to tailor your procedure to your specific needs. Some of your options at Advanced Varicose Vein Treatments of Manhattan include:
- Sclerotherapy – an injectable treatment that eliminates spider and smaller varicose veins
- VenaCure – uses laser ablation to collapse varicose veins and eliminate them from view
- Venefit – works in a similar fashion to VenaCure but uses radiofrequency energy
- VeinGogh – uses microbursts of energy to eliminate small, superficial spider veins
- Clarivein – combines sclerotherapy with mechanical ablation to treat larger varicose veins
- Ambulatory Phlebectomy – minimally-invasive procedure that removes large, bulging veins in small sections without excessive discomfort or scarring
All of our treatments are performed in our Manhattan office on an outpatient basis, using local anesthesia when necessary. Most procedures take less than one hour to complete and patients are able to return to regular activities the same day or the day after their procedure. There is no visible scarring after these procedures, so your legs are left smooth and vein-free.
If you are planning your procedure in anticipation of your wedding and honeymoon, it is a good idea to give yourself a week or two of lead time to ensure your legs are fully healed from their procedure prior to your big day. Don’t let visible veins put a damper on your honeymoon plans. To learn more about any of these treatments, contact Advanced Varicose Vein Treatments of Manhattan today at 212-204-6501.
