The spider vein and varicose vein treatment center, Woodland Park, NJ, is also committed to patient education. They believe that venous insufficiency is an extremely common but woefully underdiagnosed condition because its initial symptoms are benign and commonly mistaken for signs of aging or exhaustion. That’s why most patients don’t seek vein treatment until venous insufficiency advances considerably, leading to spider veins, varicose veins, leg ulcers, skin discoloration, and other complications.
To that end, the vein doctors at the vein center in Woodland Park educate their patients about vein disease. They provide accurate information about the signs of venous insufficiency, the available treatment protocols, and the need for early diagnosis and treatment. In this article, they extend that effort to the online realm by answering some of the most common questions about vein disease and vein treatments.
What are spider veins and varicose veins?
Spider veins are dense clusters of red, blue, or purple blood vessels visible on the skin’s surface. They appear in dense clusters and spread outwards from a central location, often resembling spider webs crawling up your legs. Varicose veins are similar to spider veins, but not exactly. They are dilated blood vessels that bulge out of your skin’s surface, looking similar to dense masses of tangled, knotted, and twisted ropes.
What does it mean if I have a lot of spider veins?
Spider veins are essentially damaged blood vessels with excessive blood trapped within. This usually occurs due to chronic venous insufficiency, a circulatory disorder wherein your vein valves collapse and blood flow in the wrong direction, eventually accumulating in the leg veins. The continued accumulation of blood in the leg veins leads to vascular dilation and spider veins. As such, if you have a lot of spider veins, there’s a strong chance you have underlying vein disease. And the presence of varicose veins is a clear sign of venous insufficiency.
How can I repair my veins naturally?
You can’t ‘repair’ your veins naturally or fix the valves within your blood vessels with home remedies. If you have the signs or symptoms of vein disease, you need medical treatments from a reliable vein doctor to address the root cause. The vein doctor will use numerous techniques to destroy or seal the diseased saphenous vein’s walls, thereby restoring effective blood circulation into the heart. That’s the only way to treat vein disease. The damaged veins must be removed to restore effective blood circulation.
While you can’t repair your veins naturally, you can alleviate the symptoms temporarily with the following lifestyle changes:
- Wear compression stockings regularly to encourage blood flow towards the heart.
- Run, cycle, swim, and do yoga to improve blood circulation and push accumulated blood towards the heart.
- Elevate your legs while sitting to make the accumulated blood flow towards the heart.
- Avoid sitting or standing for long periods since that leads to blood accumulation in the legs.
- If you have a desk job, take short walking breaks every 30 minutes.
Can compression stockings treat spider veins?
Compression stockings can alleviate the discomfort from vein disease and reduce spider veins temporarily. They apply pressure on your leg veins, thereby pushing the accumulated blood towards the heart. However, compression stockings only provide temporary relief — your blood will eventually accumulate in the leg veins again.
How do I know if I need to consult a center for vein restoration?
You need to consult a center for vein restoration if you have the signs and symptoms of vein disease — spider veins, leg heaviness, throbbing leg veins, frequent leg cramps, leg swelling, varicose veins, leg ulcers, skin discoloration, and deep vein thrombosis.
How can I fix my varicose veins without surgery?
Vascular surgery is no longer recommended as a suitable treatment for vein problems. An experienced, reliable, and well-trained vein doctor will always treat varicose veins using minimally invasive spider vein and varicose veins treatments. Minimally invasive procedures, such as radiofrequency ablation, involve making small incisions on the skin’s surface to insert a catheter and destroy the diseased vein using radiofrequency energy. The procedure is painless, safe, and concludes within an hour with no downtime or complications. Most patients can resume their daily activities immediately.
Is vein ablation painful?
Endovenous radiofrequency and laser ablation are fairly comfortable and painless. The treatment is performed under local anesthesia, so you won’t feel any pain or discomfort. Furthermore, these treatments cause minimal post-treatment side effects and have a negligible risk of complications.
Is vein treatment covered by insurance?
Vein treatment is covered by insurance if you have underlying venous insufficiency. The vein treatment center in Woodland Park accepts all major insurance plans and provides free insurance verification for all patients.
