Our board-certified vein doctor will answer some of the most common questions we get related to spider vein removal in San Diego. We will answer the following questions

Please consult our vein doctors so we may diagnose the root cause of your varicose veins and spider veins and offer recommendations for your situation.

1. What are varicose veins and spider veins?

Both varicose veins and spider veins are dilated blood vessels with excess blood accumulation. Spider veins are a dense cluster of blood vessels visible on the surface of the skin. They don’t protrude out of the skin and can be seen just underneath the surface. Varicose veins are large blood vessels that protrude out of the surface of the skin and look like a mass of knotted and twisted ropes. As such, varicose veins are a lot larger than spider veins.

2. What’s the root cause of varicose veins and spider veins?

Both varicose veins and spider veins are indicative of underlying venous diseases, specifically chronic venous insufficiency. Healthy veins consist of vein valves that facilitate smooth one-way blood circulation to the heart, against the force of gravity. Venous insufficiency is a chronic condition in which these vein valves collapse, which causes blood to flow backward and pool in your leg veins. Over time, as more blood pools in your leg veins, it applies pressure on the vein walls, leading to vein dilation, and the subsequent formation of varicose veins and spider veins.

Do you have varicose veins and spider veins? In this article, our vein doctor will answer some of the most common questions people have about spider vein removal in San Diego.

3. What are the other venous diseases caused by venous insufficiency?

Venous insufficiency is a chronic condition, which means it gets worse with time. Chronic venous insufficiency is also extremely under-diagnosed because its initial signs and symptoms may be mistaken as signs of aging. The initial warning signs of vein disease are restless legs syndrome, frequent leg cramps, leg pain, throbbing leg veins, and the formation of varicose veins and spider veins. However, over time, you may also suffer from other venous diseases, such as skin disease caused by a breakdown of blood cells, skin discoloration, leg ulcers, and deep vein thrombosis. As such, if you have any of the signs or symptoms of vein disease, you must consult a state-of-the-art varicose vein treatment center in San Diego.

4. What are safe and effective varicose vein treatments?

As mentioned previously, spider veins are often symptomatic of underlying venous diseases. As such, the board-certified vein doctor will have to treat the underlying vein disease before spider vein removal in San Diego. The safest and most effective varicose vein treatments are radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and VenaSeal. During these varicose vein treatments, the vein specialist will use heat energy, laser energy, or vein glue to seal or collapse the diseased saphenous vein, thereby restoring smooth blood circulation to the heart.

5. What’s the best method for spider vein removal in San Diego

After the primary varicose vein treatment concludes, the vein doctor can proceed with spider vein treatment in San Diego. Sclerotherapy is a safe and effective spider vein treatment in which the vein doctor will inject a medicine called sclerosant into your superficial varicose veins and spider veins. The sclerosant solution will fuse the vein walls, essentially turning them into scar tissues that will eventually get absorbed by the body and fade away from your skin.

6. How do I find a state-of-the-art vein treatment center?

When looking for a state-of-the-art vein treatment center in San Diego, you must ensure they meet certain qualities. First, they must have some of the best board-certified vein doctors. Second, they must have state-of-the-art technologies, such as ClosureFAST, VNUS, and ClariVein. Third, the vein treatment center should only provide minimally invasive varicose vein treatments. Fourth, the vein clinic should help with insurance coverage.

7. How do I identify a board-certified vascular surgeon?

You should avoid a vascular surgeon who recommends varicose vein surgery or surgical procedures like vein ligation, vein stripping, or venous bass surgery. You should only consult a vein doctor who specializes in vascular imaging, and the latest minimally invasive varicose vein treatments and sclerotherapy. The vein doctor should also be incredibly friendly and compassionate. They should ideally have over 10 or 20 years of exercise in vein treatments, with a perfect track record.
