The majority of patients seeking treatment for removal
of small leg veins (Spider veins, Telangiectasias) are for cosmetic reasons. Most are uncomfortable
with the appearance of these veins during the warmer months
when shorts and skirts are worn.
Varicose veins regardless of their size and extent may
cause significant and occasionally disabling symptoms.
Even small telangiectasias (spider veins) are often symptomatic.
Large varicose veins, greater than 3-4 mm in diameter,
need to be treated to avoid progression to more severe form and to avert complications. Swelling of the legs, spontaneous thrombosis (clotting), skin discoloration and dermatitis, all may occur. Additionally,
skin ulceration may develop in the ankle region of patients
with long standing varicose veins with underlying venous
insufficiency. Rarely, ulcer and veins may bleed.
Treating your veins will alleviate your symptoms and discomforts,
prevent future complications and improve the appearance
of your legs. After treatment, many patients are surprised
to realize how much chronic discomfort they had accepted
Significant advances have been made over the last decade
in treating varicose and spider veins. New minimally invasive
techniques, safer more effective scleotherapy medications,
lasers, and color ultrasound have been introduced. Many
vascular surgeons spent extra time in training and became
specialized & proficient in this field. These specialized
physicians are called "Phlebologists". Vein
treatment centers have been established all over the United
States to provide comprehensive vein management solutions
(One Stop Shop). Almost all forms of therapy are provided
in the comfort of an office away from the hospital, avoiding
general anesthesia, disability, discomfort, and ugly scars
connected with old methods of treatment. Getting your
treatment at a specialized vein center is of at most importance.
