Treating Venous Conditions
Vein & Skin Studio specializes in treatments and services for patients suffering from varicose and spider veins along with other cosmetic concerns. Vein and Skin Studio will help you to achieve optimal results through our state-of-the-art facility and non-surgical treatment plans.
Varicose veins are enlarged veins that are near the surface of the skin that are bulging and twisting. They are found in the legs, and mostly pose a serious medical and cosmetic concern. They are caused by the weakening of valves in the veins leading to the slower of blood flow. When this happens, blood collects and creates pressure build up in the vein, often causing pain, swelling, itching, skin discoloration, and burning. The end result is the bulging and twisting varicose vein.
Spider veins are smaller veins that appear in blue, red, or purple squiggles, resembling a spider or web. Spider veins can be known to cause symptoms such as aching, heaviness, itching, and cramping. Spider veins can be caused by pregnancy, hormonal factors, weight gain, and may be hereditary.
Cutting-edge medical advances have helped make restoring adequate venous blood flow far safer and effective. Similar breakthroughs have been made in the treatment of varicose veins and spider veins.
The treatment that is best for you depends on the following factors:
- Type of veins ( varicose or spider)
- Size of the veins
- Skin texture and color
- Location of affected veins
- Concentration and severity of veins
These factors are diagnosed using a number of non-invasive tests that take place in our office. Diagnostic and physical exams guide us in selecting the appropriate treatment method.
What Causes Vein Disease?
In a healthy person, the veins transport blood back to the heart to receive oxygen. For those with vein disease, tiny valves in the veins that normally block the backflow of blood will fail. The result is that blood does not return to the heart as efficiently, but instead pools in the lower extremities.
In time, there is a buildup of pressure, and veins grow enlarged and bulge near the surface of the skin. This can lead to the development of varicose veins from the ankle to the groin.
Vein disease is a common condition for many people. There are an estimated 80 million people in the U.S. who are suffering from some type of vein disorder. This condition requires treatment because it may indicate a serious underlying condition and may lead to very dangerous medical complications. The best outcome occurs when vein disease is diagnosed and treated early on.
What are the Causes of Vein Diseases?
The causes of vein disease include:
- Genetic or (hereditary) predisposition – most frequent cause
- Gender — women are much more likely to have abnormal veins in their legs
- Sitting or standing for long periods
What are the Symptoms of Vein Disease?
The symptoms of vein disease include:
- The appearance of bulging, ropey veins
- Pain in the legs, including throbbing and aching
- Leg fatigue and heaviness
- Itching, burning, skin darkening (discoloration)
- Wounds that are slow to heal
- Skin rash, tender areas, or abnormal pigmentation
Spider veins have a distinct spider web appearance and a red or blue color. They tend to be smaller than normal varicose veins, but can be darker and more apparent. Spider veins usually occur without accompanying symptoms can sometimes be painful, but can nonetheless indicate an underlying vein disease.
