Protecting Your Tresses

I’ve always relished an opportunity to get a new hairstyle. In fact, my hairstylist never knows what I’m going to ask for next. I always keep her in suspense. For the past few years, I’ve switched back and forth between two distinctly different styles. While I enjoy experimenting with my hair, the continuous processing I put it through is detrimental to my tresses. Therefore, I have to be careful to protect my hair. Every day, I apply a deep conditioner to my hair. I also dry my hair on a warm setting instead of a hot one. On this blog, you will learn how to maintain your hairstyle while protecting your tresses from damage.

Exposing Varicose Vein Myths You May Have Heard

The development of varicose veins is a problem that many people will suffer at some point during their lives. However, while most people are aware of the cosmetic issues caused by these veins, many are not aware that these veins can actually be highly painful. Yet, there are treatment options available, but some patients may make the mistake of thinking that a couple of common myths about this problem are true. By exposing the realities behind these myths, you will find yourself better situated to make sound choices when considering undergoing a vein treatment. 

Myth: Varicose Veins Are Just Collapsed Veins

Some people assume that the blue and purple colors in a varicose vein stem from the fact that the vein has completely collapsed. However, this is not technically true. Your circulatory system is highly complex, and it requires the use of a countless number of valves to control the flow of blood throughout the body. Sadly, it is possible for these valves to become damaged, and when this happens, blood can be unable to exit a vein.

This is essentially what happens with a varicose vein. After a valve has failed, blood will pool in the vein, and this will eventually lead to it turning the dark purples and blues that this type of vein is known to have. 

Myth: Ointments Can Always Be Used To Treat Varicose Veins

When a person decides to have these veins treated, they may assume that they will only have to apply a special ointment or take a medication to help the problem go away. While this may be an option when these veins are first forming, many people wait until the problem has already become very noticeable before they seek treatment. As a result, the damage to the vein may be too severe to repair. 

If this is the case, you will need minor surgery to have the vein removed. This may sound painful, but it is actually a relatively minor outpatient procedure that can be completed in a matter of minutes in most cases. Considering that the vein is too damaged for blood to flow through, there is no harm in removing the vein, and in fact, this step can help prevent complications from the damaged vein from impacting other healthy veins. 

Varicose veins are one of the most common reasons that individuals will consider having a professionally administered vein treatment. However, some people assume that some misleading myths are true, and this mistake can cause them to delay undergoing this type of procedure. By realizing what causes this type of vein problem and the treatment options available (such as from Drs. Young & Wouters Vein Treatment), you should find it easier to make a sound choice for your needs.
