What causes vein disease?

The direct cause of varicose veins and spider veins is unhealthy valves in your veins that allow blood to flow in the wrong direction, which leads to strained and bulging veins. Pregnancy, weight gain, and the simple effects of aging can aggravate vein disease. Other factors–such as employment that requires long periods of standing or sitting–can also worsen varicose veins symptoms over time, requiring vein disease treatment. FiVe Clinics vein clinic is here and ready to assist with all of your vein care needs.

As you can see, healthy valves allow blood to flow in one direction only. When veins aren’t functioning properly, the blood flows backward, causing strain and damage, resulting in varicose veins.

In the past, the most common vein treatment method was vein surgery. Vein stripping was often painful and required significant recovery time. However, today, our vein clinic is able to offer a number of advanced, proven methods for treating varicose veins and other vein issues. Our vein specialists use minimally-invasive vein treatments for vein disease symptoms.

What can you do to prevent things from getting worse?

  • Get active: Regular exercise helps improve circulation and encourages blood flow back to the heart.
  • Lose weight: Maintaining a healthy weight decreases the risk of developing varicose veins.
  • Elevate your legs when possible: Elevating your legs reduces the pressure inside your veins, encouraging blood flow back to your heart.

Our Treatments

Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation

EVRFT is now considered the gold standard for treating venous insufficiency in superficial veins. The treatment consists of your provider inserting a small catheter into the diseased vein using ultrasound guidance. The procedure at our vein clinic is quick, recovery time is minimal and there is little discomfort. Activities of daily living can be resumed almost immediately after the procedure in most cases.

Sclerotherapy Injections

Small veins that are less than 1 millimeter in diameter are usually treated with sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy is a popular leg vein treatment for both spider veins or varicose veins. Your doctor will use an ultrasound to guide a tiny needle into the affected vein and administer a sterile solution. The solution will irritate the inner lining of the vein and cause it to swell and seal shut. As with EVLT treatment, the healthy surrounding veins will take over the blood supply and the treated vein will be absorbed by your body. Patients typically wear compression stockings for several days after the treatment, but they are able to return to their normal routine immediately afterward.

Varithena Vein Treatment

Our Varithena treatment is a foam treatment used to treat vein conditions associated with the Great Saphenous Vein (GSV) and the surrounding veins. With this treatment for varicose veins on legs, your vein specialist uses an ultrasound to guide a small needle or catheter into the vein. This allows the Varithena foam treatment to reach the affected vein. The Varithena foam will cause the vein to collapse and the blood flow will be redirected to other healthy veins.

Ambulatory phlebectomy

Ambulatory phlebectomy is an office-based procedure for treating both asymptomatic and symptomatic superficial veins from the skin. It is usually performed on larger veins that bulge above the surface of the skin and varicose veins. It also rarely is used on smaller veins. Ambulatory phlebectomy may be combined with other therapies in the treatment of venous disease. The procedure is not recommended for patients unable to walk on their own or are unable to wear compression stockings post-procedure.

Ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy

Ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure performed in-office to treat veins that are not quite visible to the eye but are associated with significant discomfort. During the procedure, medication is injected into the vein using ultrasound technology to locate the desired vein and injection site. By injecting this medication into the vein, it will shrink down in size. Patients will need to wear compressions stockings after the procedure for optimal results.

Vein Treatments FAQ

Every patient and their conditions are diffrent. A custom treatment plan is created by FiVe Clinics for every patient, even those suffering from similar symptoms. FiVe Clinics providers take the time out to evaluate your veins with ultrasound technology, identifying unhealthy veins that need treatment.

Depending on the results of our screening and assessment, you are given a treatment plan that includes one or more treatments.

Some commonly recommended treatments include:

  • Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)
  • Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA)
  • Sclerotherapy
Side effects of vein treatment and surgery can include bruising, swelling, redness of the skin, discoloration of the skin, and discomfort.

The best varicose vein treatment for you will depend on you. FiVe Clinics providers take the time to assess your situation, problem veins, and the best treatments to target them. You will be presented with a treatment plan that will best address your spider veins, varicose veins, bulging veins, or any combination of the three.

The pest spider vein treatment for you will depend on assessment and evaluation by your FiVe Clinics care provier. A customized treatment plan will be given to you to address your spider veins and the best way to treat them.

There are no home remedies that can treat vein disease, but there are things you can do to help ease the discomfort you experience. Compression stockings and elevation of the legs are both recommended in the reduction of the pain experienced from vein disease.

Our physicians expertly insert a small fiber into the vein using ultrasound to guide it with precision. Heat is introduced through the fiber into the vein wall, causing them to collapse and close. Blood flow is redirected to healthy veins.

The procedure takes roughly an hour to complete and downtime/recovery is minimal.

Unlike some other surgeries and treatments, it is not recommended to skip meals prior to your treatment. As a matter of fact, it’s recommended that you bring a snack along on the day of treatment and drink plenty of fluids. Also, take your medications as prescribed.

Wear comfortable clothing like shorts as well as your usual compression stockings. You can also help yourself relax by bringing your mobile device or ipod and earbuds along.

When discussing pain, it’s important to note that everyone has a different level of pain tolerance. Your level of pain will be checked on at various points in the procedure to make sure you are comfortable.

Varicose vein treatments benefit from minimally invasive possibilities and a low risk of complications, but there are always risks with any medical procedure. It’s imperative to share a detailed medical history, allergies, and all of the medications you are on, which includes supplements and vitamins. Ask your FiVe Clinics provider what the associated risks and possible side effects are in your case.

There is usually little to no downtime associated with treatment. Treatments are typically completed within an hour and most people return to normal activities the same day since hospitalization is not part of normal treatment.

Varicose and Spider Veins FAQ

Varicose veins change as time goes on and can get worse if let untreated. More serious health concerns can begin with varicose veins that cause other problems over time. Blood clots forming in the deep vein, commonly referred to as deep vein thrombosis, is one one of the risks. Swelling, ulcers, and other serious complications can also arise.

There is no single vein disease factor that outweighs them all. There are many that can lead to vein disease, one of which being genetics. If someone in your family has a history of varicose veins, spider veins, or other vein diseases, there is a higher chance that you will get them.

Technically speaking, varicose veins cannot be permanently cured. Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) is the underlying cause for varicose veins and damages the valves responsible for controlling the flow of blood back to the vital organs.

Varicose veins are generally large, swollen, blue colored veins that bulge from under the skin. They’re most commonly found in the legs but can form in many areas of the body. Spider veins, on the other hand, are smaller clusters of red, blue, and/or purple colored veins under the surface of the skin. They do not cause the same level of bulging you see with varicose veins. They are commonly found in the thighs, ankles, and calves.

Vein disease is common and manageable when caught early on and the right precautions are taken. If you leave vein disease untreated, it can present itself as dangerous complications that require medical treatment.

There are various factors that cause vein disease. It cannot be pinpointed to a single one. Genetics, weight, and pregnancy are three common factors that can lead to vein disease. Lifestyle (namely the sedentary lifestyle) is another common factor.

There isn’t a way to completely prevent vein disease from happening in every case, however, improving the circulation and muscle tone of the body will reduce the risk of varicose veins forming.

Exercising, keeping your legs elevated,  and eating healthily are all ways that you can reduce your risks of vein disease.

Common symptoms of vein disease include:

  • painful veins
  • aching of the legs
  • cramping
  • swelling
  • throbbing feeling
  • heaviness of the legs
  • fatigue
  • itching
  • restless legs

If these symptoms sound familiar to you, it might be time to schedule a consultation to talk to a vein care provider at FiVe Clinics. We can assess your veins and discuss the treatment options you have for a minimally-invasive means to healthy blood flow.

If your spider and/or varicose veins don’t bother you, they are not always an immediate health concern. Over time, though, if left untreated, they can lead to issues that will require treatment.

 

You have higher likelihood of developing varicose veins if:

  • People in your family have varicose veins
  • You are a female (Women are 2.5 times more likely to experience vein disease)
  • You are over 30
  • You sit or stand for long periods of time every day without taking breaks
  • You are pregnant or have had a child
