SHELBY TOWNSHIP, Mich., Oct. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- "The Lovely Legs Seminar -- Dare To Go Bare" is a free seminar that will be in Shelby Township, Michigan on November 17, 2010 at 8180 26 Mile Road, Suite 300 Shelby Township, MI.
This seminar will review modern non-surgical treatments for varicose veins. Many people with varicose veins have leg cramps, heaviness, fatigue, and even Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS), in addition to cosmetic concerns. These symptoms often cause people to become inactive which can lead to other more serious illnesses as well as obesity.
"I stand a lot throughout the day; as a result of my varicose veins, during my drive home from work my legs would start to hurt, feel tired and cramp up," says Vickie, a local school teacher. She had her veins treated, and no longer has leg pain.
"The pain from my varicose veins was waking me up at night and the only way to get back to sleep was to take a pain reliever to dull the pain," says Jo, one of Dr. Mok's patients. "Now I can sleep through the night and I couldn't be happier."
People frequently think they have to suffer with varicose veins or undergo risky surgery. Now they have another option. Dr. Mok will review the latest treatments that include endovenous lasers (EVLT, EVLA, CTEV, and others) as well as radiofrequency (VNUS Closure), both of which treat the cause of varicose veins.
Dr. Charles Mok of The Vein Center at Allure Medical Spa will review the evolution of treatments for varicose veins. Also covered will be the common causes, heredity factors, and characteristics of these vein syndromes. "Most people think of varicose veins as purely a cosmetic problem. In our practice, we find most of our patients just want to feel better, and if they look better as a result, great," says Dr. Mok.
