In this article, however, our vein clinic in Midtown provides medical advice and information on vein treatments to better understand spider veins and varicose veins.
Are spider veins and varicose veins dangerous?
Spider veins are dense clusters of blood vessels visible on the surface of the skin. Varicose veins are larger blood vessels that protrude out of the skin’s surface in a knotted and twisted form.
Spider veins aren’t dangerous in and of themselves. In fact, you’ll find several accounts online claiming that spider veins are merely cosmetic issues. However, that’s only partially true. While spider veins are dangerous, they’re indicative of underlying vein disease, which can be dangerous.
Varicose veins are signs of advanced vein disease, represented by excessive blood accumulation in the veins. However, varicose veins are also dangerous in and of themselves. The dilated blood vessels are sensitive, and they may burst upon the slightest of impact, which may lead to profuse bleeding. If your varicose veins burst, you have to be taken to the emergency room.
What’s the importance of scheduling treatments for varicose veins?
Both spider veins and varicose veins represent different stages in an underlying disease called chronic venous insufficiency. That’s why it’s crucial to schedule treatments for varicose veins.
Venous insufficiency is a condition in which your vein valves collapse, causing blood to flow backward and accumulate in your leg veins. Over time, due to continued blood accumulation, your leg veins dilate, eventually bulging out of the skin’s surface as varicose veins.
Vein disease may lead to several complications because it’s a chronic condition, i.e., it gets worse with time. Over time, you will suffer from skin disease due to the breakdown of blood cells and skin discoloration due to the lack of blood circulation. As such, you’ll have pale legs spotted with red-brown patches.
Over time, the lack of blood circulation will prevent your wounds from healing, leading to the formation of non-healing wounds on your skin — leg ulcers. Most severely, the blood in your leg veins may clot, leading to deep vein thrombosis. If the clotted blood in your veins breaks away, they may travel to your lungs, leading to pulmonary embolism.
As such, if you have spider veins and varicose veins, you must seek minimally invasive treatments for varicose veins.
Why are minimally invasive varicose vein treatments better than surgery?
Minimally invasive varicose vein treatments are better than surgery because they’re a lot more effective and safer. Minimally invasive treatments for varicose veins have a 97% success rate, while surgical treatments have an 85% success rate. Furthermore, surgical treatments have a high risk of complications, like deep vein thrombosis and infections, while minimally invasive treatments have a negligible risk of side effects. Surgical treatments also require hospitalization with significant downtime, while minimally invasive varicose vein treatments usually conclude in the doctor’s office within an hour with no downtime.
What are the best treatments for varicose veins?
Radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and VenaSeal are the best minimally invasive treatments for varicose veins. During these treatments for varicose veins, the vein doctor uses thermal energy, laser energy, or medical adhesives to destroy or seal the diseased vein’s walls. Once the diseased saphenous vein is closed, the accumulated blood flows to healthier veins, restoring smooth blood circulation to the heart. Meanwhile, the diseased vein gets absorbed by the body.
After the primary treatments for varicose veins, the vein doctor uses sclerotherapy to remove the superficial varicose veins and spider veins. The vein doctor injects a medicine called sclerosant into your visible veins to harden their vein walls, turning them into scar tissues that eventually get absorbed by the body.
