A Varicose Vein Doctor in SD Discusses Varicose Veins and Spider Veins

September 28, 2020

spider and varicose vein treatment center

Introducing our board-certified varicose vein doctor in SD.

If you have vein disease symptoms, such as varicose veins and spider veins, you must consult the best varicose vein doctor in SD. Dr. Carly Guthrie and Dr. Billy Schoenfeld are the best double board-certified vein doctors, currently serving as the co-director of our vein treatment center in San Diego — Vein Treatment Clinic, SD.

Dr. Guthrie is a double board-certified vein specialist with advanced training in venous medicine, cardiology, and anesthesiology. Dr. Schoenfeld has specialized training in vascular imaging-guided minimally invasive vein procedures, including radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, ambulatory phlebectomy, and sclerotherapy.

Our vein specialists have performed hundreds of complicated vein procedures without complications, as evidenced by their stunning 5-star ratings and testimonials. They understand and value the importance of mental peace during vein procedures, so they carefully discuss your vein procedures and problems before the session.

This article aims to expand the general awareness of varicose veins and spider veins. We’ve noticed that most patients don’t consult vein doctors until their saphenous vein is significantly damaged, i.e., until they have advanced vein disease. We provide all the information you need to seek help promptly, thus minimizing the risk of advanced complications.

How can you identify varicose veins and spider veins?

The terms “varicose veins” and “spider veins” are often used interchangeably. While varicose veins and spider veins bear some striking similarities, and may also occur because of the same underlying diseased saphenous vein, they’re ultimately different conditions.

If you notice bulging veins on your legs, you may wonder whether you need to worry about them. Read this to find out when to seek varicose vein treatment in New Jersey.

Spider veins are dense clusters of web-like and thin blood vessels visible on the skin’s surface. They appear in dense clusters, usually on the legs, but they don’t protrude outwards. They’re not inherently dangerous, but they may be symptomatic of a dangerous vein condition.

Varicose veins are large blood vessels protruding from the skin’s surface. They look like dense masses of thick and knotted ropes bulging from the skin’s surface, often on the upper thighs and legs. They’re inherently dangerous because they’re dilated blood vessels that may burst and cause profuse bleeding.

What causes varicose veins and spider veins?

Varicose veins and spider veins are essentially dilated blood vessels, differing primarily on the level of dilation. Both varicose veins and spider veins occur because of underlying chronic venous insufficiency, a medical condition wherein blood accumulates in your leg veins.

Healthy veins have valves that ensure smooth one-way blood circulation to the heart. Venous insufficiency is a condition wherein your vein valves collapse, causing blood to flow backward in your leg veins, eventually accumulating in your leg veins. Over time, the continued accumulation of blood in your leg veins leads to venous insufficiency.

Are varicose veins and spider veins dangerous?

Yes, varicose veins and spider veins are dangerous, even though they’re generally considered cosmetic problems. Spider veins aren’t dangerous in and of themselves, but they’re indicative of a diseased saphenous vein, which is dangerous. Varicose veins, meanwhile, are inherently dangerous because they’re excessively dilated blood vessels that may burst and cause profuse and unstoppable bleeding.

However, varicose veins and spider veins are primarily dangerous because of the underlying diseased saphenous vein. If left untreated, venous insufficiency leads to severe complications, including restless leg syndrome, leg pain, leg heaviness, throbbing leg veins, skin disease, skin discoloration, leg ulcers, and deep vein thrombosis. If the clotted blood in your leg veins travels to your lungs, you may also suffer a potentially fatal condition called pulmonary embolism.

How do you conduct saphenous vein diagnosis and treatment?

Before curating a treatment plan, our board-certified vein specialists diagnose the root cause of your varicose veins and spider veins. They visually examine the leg veins and discuss your symptoms, such as restless leg syndrome and leg heaviness. Next, they run vascular imaging tests to identify the diseased saphenous vein.

The vein doctors curate a treatment plan based on the root cause of your varicose veins and spider veins. If you have an underlying problem, they recommend minimally invasive vein procedures to seal or collapse the diseased saphenous vein, restoring smooth blood circulation to the heart.

After treating the diseased saphenous vein, or if you don’t have underlying vein disease, the vein specialists recommend minimally invasive and cosmetic vein procedures, such as sclerotherapy and ambulatory phlebectomy. Minimally invasive cosmetic procedures remove the visible varicose veins and spider veins from the skin’s surface.

What are the best vein procedures?

Radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and VenaSeal are the best minimally invasive vein procedures to collapse or remove the diseased saphenous vein. During these procedures, the vein specialist uses thermal energy, laser energy, or medical adhesives to collapse or seal the diseased vein, restoring smooth blood circulation to the heart.

Do vein procedures involve long recovery times?

Minimally invasive vein procedures are in-office and outpatient treatments with no downtime or extended recovery times. The procedures conclude within an hour, and you can resume most of your daily activities immediately. You may have to wear compression stockings for a few days, but there’s no extended recovery process.
