It is estimated that more than 80 million Americans suffer from painful, bulging varicose veins or unsightly spider veins. These veins are more than an embarrassing condition.

What is Vein Disease?

Veins take deoxygenated blood from a body part and bring it back to the heart. Because veins in the legs oppose gravity and flow in an upward direction, the veins have one way valves. When the valves do not work properly, blood collects in the veins called venous insufficiency.

When the blood collects in these areas, spider and varicose veins will develop:

Vein disease affects men and women of all ages. However, spider and varicose veins are most common among women. Many women begin to notice the appearance of spider veins after childbirth as a result of direct pressure on the veins in the pelvic region and the lower extremities. Furthermore, hormones and the extra volume of blood in the body will often cause varicose veins with age.

Varicose and spider veins can be physically and emotionally painful, and sufferers often feel embarrassed, frustrated and, in some cases, depressed. However, a physical exam and ultrasound study will determine if the condition is medical or cosmetic, and also will illuminate appropriate options for treatment.

Factors that can increase your risk for vein disease include:

Treatment for Vein Disease

Diagnostic Ultrasound

Prior to performing a cosmetic procedure, any underlying vein disorders must be medically controlled. Under the skin surface, veins are visualized with an ultrasound. If veins are more than cosmetic, an ultrasound is performed. This will give a clear understanding of the underlying vein valves. This is noninvasive, pain free and performed in the office.

There are several forms of treatment available for the reduction and removal of spider and varicose veins, including: Sclerotherapy and Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy, Laser Vein Treatment, Endovenous Laser Treatment, Ambulatory Phlebectomy, Radiofrequency Ablation.

The best type of treatment for your vein disease depends on the severity of your condition and lifestyle factors that might have contributed to the development of your vein disease.

Ambulatory phlebectomy is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure used to remove surface varicose veins from the legs. Dr. Schoenhaus offers treatment for varicose veins, including the removal of leg veins with ambulatory phlebectomy as necessary.

Endovenous Laser Treatment is a medical procedure that can enhance blood circulation and give you healthier and better-looking legs. Dr. Schoenhaus offers EVLT® endovenous laser treatment to treat varicose veins. Endovenous laser therapy treats problematic veins from inside the vein itself.

Laser vein treatment is a procedure that uses heat to destroy problematic blood vessels. When the blood inside the vessel is heated, it collapses, effectively eliminating the appearance of spider veins and varicose veins. Laser vein treatment is a great alternative for individuals who are afraid of needles.

Radiofrequency Ablation is a minimally invasive procedure that heats the inner walls of the damaged vein using high-energy radiofrequency waves. This causes the vein to develop scar tissue and close, reducing or eliminating the appearance of the varicose vein on the skin’s surface. RF ablation is a safe and effective treatment option with minimal discomfort and downtime.

Sclerotherapy is a type of treatment that involves minimal invasion for dealing with spider and varicose veins. The thin and purple or red veins that you see in your legs may not be a major health issue, but they can still cause aching, cramping, and burning sensations in your legs throughout the day.

Spider veins are a mild type of venous insufficiency that can affect blood flow in any of the body’s extremities, although it is most frequently found in the legs. This condition is also known as venulectasias or telangiectasia and is prevalent in roughly 30% of the adult population, particularly women.

Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy is a non-surgical method that helps remove spider and varicose veins from the legs. This treatment can be used for veins that are not visible on the surface of the skin, including deep veins that cause discoloration of surface blood vessels. Simply treating those superficial veins may not be enough to correct the appearance of spider and varicose veins.

Varicose veins are enlarged, twisted, and discolored veins that appear on the surface of the skin. They occur when the valves in the veins become weak or damaged, causing blood to pool in the veins of the legs. This can result in pain, swelling, and discomfort. Varicose veins are most common in people over the age of 50 and affect approximately half of this population.

VenaSeal® is a medical procedure used to treat vein insufficiency. It involves using a medical adhesive to block off a section of a vein that has vein reflux. Vein reflux occurs when blood flow towards the heart reverses direction, leading to poor circulation and pooling of blood around the ankle. This happens when one-way valves in the veins fail to work effectively and start to leak.
