Valley Vein & Med Spa FAQs

The following are common questions our doctors get when treating someone who suffers from vein issues. If you still have questions about Varicose vein treatments or spider vein treatments please contact our clinic in Ohio or West Virginia

What are the symptoms of Varicose Veins?

Varicose Veins have more than just an ugly appearance. Patients may not notice all the symptoms of varicose veins. Beyond the ugly appearance, the other symptoms include swelling, itching, aching, cramps, heaviness, redness, fatigue, and tenderness.

You should seek medical attention if your symptoms worsen or if you experience changes like darkening, dryness, redness, and flakiness of the skin. These may be signs of advanced venous disease.

What do Varicose Veins look like?

Varicose veins range from small blue-green veins to large pencil-sized veins that give the appearance of tree roots down the leg. Be sure to consult a vein specialist if you have larger veins as they tend to suggest significant disease. Many times, however, the smaller veins may represent the beginning of an underlying problem.

What exactly is a Varicose Vein?

Varicose veins are dilated, twisted, veins that are close to the surface of the skin. Your veins use the surrounding muscles to move your blood up the leg and toward the heart. Veins in your leg carry blood upward to the heart, against gravity. They achieve this feat using one-way valves. Varicose veins occur when these valves weaken and do not close properly, causing blood to pool in the veins. This additional blood flow weighs down the leg resulting in fatigue when standing for long periods of time.

With extreme cases of Varicose Veins, it is possible to develop deep blood clots and leg ulcers. It is possible for these ulcers to develop spontaneously, as well as a result of trauma. Unfortunately, they can take anywhere from months to years to heal. Treatment is an essential part of preventing ulcers, potentially hazardous blood clots, and other life-threatening complications associated with varicose veins. The procedures offered at WRVI are Compression therapy, EVLT Laser Treatment, Microphlebectomy , and Sclerotherapy .

Don't let the fear of varicose veins run your life. At the Western Reserve Vascular Institute, we use the newest, minimally invasive procedures. These procedures have revolutionized the treatment, so there is little to no recovery time. There has never been a better time than now to fix your varicose veins!
