Quick Guide to Cutting Edge Treatments for Varicose Veins Pain

Varicose veins pain makes everyday activities more difficult, but many people live with the discomfort to avoid invasive vein stripping surgery. Fortunately, that method of vein disease treatment is all but obsolete. Today’s treatment options are safe and effective. More importantly, there is no need for general anesthesia, so they can be performed in your vein specialist’s office.

If you have varicose veins pain, your vein doctor in New York or vein doctor in New Jersey offers customized solutions that are minimally invasive and virtually pain-free.

What Causes Varicose Veins and Spider Veins?

Varicose veins and spider veins are often regarded an unsightly and uncomfortable inconvenience, but not necessarily an urgent medical issue. However, in many cases, they are a symptom of underlying vein disease like Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI). Unfortunately, venous disorders often go undiagnosed by physicians who don’t specialize in this area of medicine.

The circulatory system is responsible for moving blood throughout the body. Arteries carry oxygenated blood from the heart and lungs to organs and tissues. Veins return deoxygenated blood to the heart so that it can be pumped to the lungs. Veins have a difficult job, because the blood vessels must work against gravity to transport blood from the legs and feet to the heart. A series of tiny one-way valves helps the process along by ensuring that blood moves in the right direction.

If these valves become damaged through injury or disease, blood can leak backwards. It pools in the lower half of the body, causing swelling and pressure on the vein walls. The extra pressure on the veins weakens the vessels, and they may grow swollen and twisted. When they take on a thick, knotted, rope-like appearance and protrude against the surface of the skin, they are referred to as varicose veins. When the enlarged veins have a web-like appearance just beneath the surface of the skin, they are referred to as spider veins.

Are There Other Symptoms of Vein Disease?

Varicose veins and spider veins may be the most obvious signs of vein disease, but they aren’t the only symptoms. Many patients experience varicose veins pain, along with a feeling of heaviness, achiness, or tiredness in their legs. Some start to notice sudden leg cramps, particularly at night, and others develop a condition called Restless Leg Syndrome – a persistent urge to move or stretch the legs, even when you are relaxed.

If vein disease is left untreated, more serious symptoms can result. Skin around the swollen area may get itchy and overly-sensitive. Over time, the swelling can cause skin to become discolored. It loses its natural ability to fight off infection and heal from cuts and scrapes, so small injuries turn into big problems. For example, some people are left with open wounds that allow dangerous bacteria to enter. In the most severe cases, patients develop cellulitis – a painful infection of the skin that is difficult to treat.

The best way to prevent complications from vein disease is to work with a specialized vein doctor in NY or vein doctor in NJ to ensure accurate diagnosis of venous disorders. These experts design a customized treatment plan to treat varicose and spider veins, ensuring that the condition doesn’t get worse.

Can Varicose Veins Pain Be Treated Without Surgery?

At one time, the only way to treat varicose veins was an invasive surgical procedure known as vein stripping. Today, there are a variety of cutting-edge treatments that are fast, effective, and minimally invasive – no hospital stay is required. Recovery time is short, and most patients return to their normal activities right away.

Advanced vein disease treatments work by permanently closing the unhealthy vein, so that blood can be rerouted through healthier vessels – a process that occurs automatically. These treatments use heat, laser energy, medication, or specialized vein glue to seal off the unhealthy vein.

The tissue from the closed vein is reabsorbed by your body, reducing and often eliminating the appearance of your varicose vein and spider vein. Once the procedure is complete, most patients notice significant improvement in their other symptoms, as well. The varicose veins pain and leg swelling goes down, and skin damage starts to heal.

Some of the most common vein treatments available through your vein treatment clinic include the following:

These procedures are performed in your vein doctor’s office. After using a local anesthetic in the area to be treated, your vein specialist accesses the unhealthy veins and delivers the treatment through a small incision in your skin. Usually, the incision is so small that you don’t even need stitches. Vein treatment procedures generally take about 30 minutes, though it could be more or less depending on how severe the problem is and how many veins are being treated.

After the procedure is complete, your vein doctor will recommend that you wear compression stockings to promote healthy circulation in your leg veins during the recovery period. Other than that, most patients require little or no after-care. You can resume your regular activities right away, though you may be asked to refrain from strenuous exercise and participation in sports for a week or two.

How Do I Choose a Vein Specialist?

Doctors who specialize in venous disorders have extensive education and experience in the diagnosis and treatment of vein disease. That means that you can rely on an accurate diagnosis and a customized treatment plan that includes the most advanced treatment methods available. Look for a vein doctor who is Board-Certified, so you can be confident that you are getting the highest-quality care available.
