Why should you care about varicose vains?
Varicose vains are one of the main sources of varnish that is used to remove skin lesions, such as diabetic ulcers. The condition is called diabetic ulcer disease. It causes the skin to become inflamed and red. The condition is treatable, if treatment can prevent further ulcers.
The varicose vains in question work to remove the varicose spaces between the layers of skin, called the dermis. These spaces help seal in oxygen to your skin cells and prevent the skin from getting irritated and damaged. The holes in the skin cells that allow oxygen to pass in and out are called the fibrin, or fibrin plugs. When an irritant like sugar or oil are placed in the void space between the fibrin plug and the skin, the resulting irritation can cause further ulceration and the varicose vains can be affected.
If you don't see improvement after a few weeks of treatment, it's usually time to try another treatment, like a retinoid. We don't recommend retinoids as first-line treatments for varicose veins because they can cause permanent damage.
Yes, you can. Your doctor will have you go through a short, simple insulin pump treatment.
