Benefits of Vein Treatment
Unlike some other medical conditions, venous disease does not go away and only gets worse over time. There are no home remedies or medications that “cure” it. Once your vein walls become weakened, you can’t reverse the damage, but you can manage some of the uncomfortable symptoms. The greatest benefit of vein care by the specialists at VVC is the avoidance of future problems. “Procrastination” can lead to further deterioration.
Many people come to us because of the visual signs of the vein issues they are experiencing. Our full Cycle of Care may treat both the signs and symptoms of venous disease:
Vein therapy by board-certified vascular experts includes much more than just physical and visual relief. Our specialists have the training and tools to diagnose vein issues before the condition gets worse. Our Insurance Authorization team is available to assure you receive all the treatment benefits your insurance will cover. We control venous disease because it can’t be cured. After treatment, follow-up over time with lifestyle changes help assure continued leg health.
Once vein walls become stretched and damaged, they can’t be repaired. Damaged veins can be closed and blood can be rerouted to healthier veins. A qualified expert has the training to spot your venous issues and recommend the right combination of treatments to manage your symptoms and prevent further damage.
"I have had leg swelling for years and I never knew that I could do anything about it."
— Martin C.
Stationary standing or prolonged sitting can result in distended, leaky veins, which may or may not be visible under the skin. This increases pressure on the vessel walls, causing them to stretch and dilate. Although these veins may or may not be visible under the skin, the increased pressure within them pushes fluid out into the surrounding tissue and skin, causing swelling in the lower legs.
When veins leak and swelling remains uncontrolled, other problems may develop:
Advanced symptoms from varicose veins may include throbbing, burning, and cramping in your lower legs, particularly after standing for long periods of time. Another, more serious condition that may also cause leg throbbing is deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which is a blood clot in the deep veins of your leg. Often called the “silent killer,” as many as 300,000 people each year are affected when these blood clots break free and travel to the lung, where they become a possibly fatal pulmonary embolism.
Our team controls throbbing, achy veins as well as more advanced issues with advanced vein therapy:
Healthy venous circulation relies on walking and the contraction of the calf muscle to pump blood through the veins back to your heart. One-way valves prevent blood from flowing backwards. If these valves are damaged or function poorly, pooling of venous blood can occur, causing symptoms of vein disease, including leg cramps. It is possible to suffer with vein problems, including cramping and even swelling, and have no noticeable varicose or spider veins.
The signs and symptoms of venous disease range from subtle to obvious:
Topical treatments for leg itching won’t provide lasting relief if the problem is an underlying vein issue. With advanced vein disease, fluid leaks out of the veins and causes your skin to become irritated, dry, scaly, and eventually firm. Our minimally invasive procedures close off the damaged veins and reroute the blood through healthy veins.
For patients with early indications of vein disease, and those who wish to prevent further damage, there are several non-surgical treatment options available:
