Our board-certified vein specialists have years of experience with vein treatments, having successfully treated hundreds of patients. However, they have noted that most patients approach them when their venous disease has already reached an advanced stage, i.e., when they have varicose veins, leg ulcers, and deep vein thrombosis. You should ideally consult vein specialists long before you suffer from these complications of venous disease. You should consult vein clinics when you notice the initial warning signs of vein disease, such as spider veins, restless legs syndrome, or leg heaviness.
Venous disease is one of the most under-diagnosed diseases because its initial signs and symptoms resemble signs of aging. As such, people don’t consult vein clinics until it’s pretty late. Venous disease is a chronic condition, so you can’t expect it to simply go away, you have to proactively treat vein disease at the earliest stage possible. But how do you know if you need to consult vein doctors? What are the signs to look for? In this article, our board-certified vein specialists will discuss how to determine if you have venous disease.
What are the initial signs and symptoms of venous disease?
Venous disease is a circulatory disorder in which your vein valves collapse. These vein valves are usually responsible for smooth one-way blood circulation to the heart. When these vein valves collapse, gravity forces your blood to flow backward, accumulating in your leg veins. Over time, the continued accumulation of blood in your leg veins leads to several problems and complications. Venous disease is a chronic condition that worsens over time, so you must seek treatment at the earliest stage.
The initial signs and symptoms of venous disease are fairly benign and may be misattributed to exhaustion or aging. Initially, the venous disease may lead to restless legs, frequent leg cramps, leg pain, or throbbing leg veins. You may also have spider veins, i.e., dense clusters of blood vessels on the skin’s surface. The signs and symptoms of venous disease worsen at the end of the day or after long periods of sitting or standing still. If you notice any of these signs, you should consult vein clinics.
What happens if you don’t treat venous disease?
As mentioned, venous disease is a chronic condition that worsens over time. If left untreated, it will lead to several complications. The continued accumulation of blood in your leg veins will apply pressure on your vascular walls, leading to vein dilation and the eventual formation of varicose veins. Unlike spider veins, varicose veins bulge out of your skin and are dangerous. Varicose veins are extremely dilated blood vessels prone to bursting and profuse bleeding.
In addition to varicose veins, you may also suffer from several other complications. The lack of blood circulation in your leg veins may lead to skin discoloration. You may also develop leg ulcers, i.e., non-healing wounds on your skins, due to the lack of effective blood circulation. Eventually, you may suffer from deep vein thrombosis, a condition in which the accumulated blood in your vein valves clots. If the blood clots break away, they may also travel to your lungs, inducing a potentially fatal condition called pulmonary embolism.
We provide high-quality care and minimally invasive varicose vein treatment.
During your consultation, our vein specialists will look for the signs and symptoms of venous disease, as mentioned above. They will also use a vascular imaging process called Duplex Ultrasound to visualize the blood flow in your leg veins. Duplex Ultrasound will reveal if you have venous disease and the problematic vein responsible for the vein problems. Our board-certified vein specialists will curate a minimally invasive varicose vein treatment plan based on the diagnosis.
If you have venous disease, our vein specialists recommend one of the following minimally invasive varicose vein treatments — radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and VenaSeal. During these varicose vein treatments, our vein specialists will use thermal energy, laser energy, or medical adhesives to collapse the diseased saphenous vein. Once the diseased vein is removed, the accumulated blood will flow to healthier veins.
Following the varicose vein treatment, our vein doctors will use sclerotherapy to remove the visible spider veins from your skin. During the sclerotherapy procedure, our vein specialists inject a sclerosant solution into the spider veins, which will harden the spider veins into scar tissues that eventually get absorbed by the body. Sclerotherapy is the best spider vein treatment because it removes up to 70% of your spider veins within three weeks, without any side effects or complications.
