To the untrained eye, spider veins and varicose veins may not be immediately distinguishable, and even for a general practitioner who understands the difference, it is always best to see a vascular specialist who can offer in-depth understanding of your condition as well as comprehensive treatment options. At Vascular Health Center, we have the knowledge and experience you want in a vein care specialist and can provide you with treatment options that are designed to address your unique concerns.
Spider veins are red, purple, and blue vessels that are most typically found on the legs and face. They occur when valves in your veins are damaged or weakened, causing pressure to build and blood to pool. A sedentary lifestyle or career that forces you to stand for extended periods of time may increase your risk of developing spider veins. Other factors include family history, being overweight, wearing tight-fitting clothes, using birth control pills, pregnancy or menopause, and age. Those who are light complexioned have a greater risk of developing spider veins.
To treat spider veins, you have several options. These include simple solutions like wearing compression socks, increasing your physical activity, taking breaks when standing for long periods of time, and even specialized exercises to increase blood flow in your legs. At Vascular Health Center, we also offer sclerotherapy and endovenous ablation to eliminate spider veins. Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a sterile chemical into the lining of the afflicted veins, which collapses them, forcing blood to reroute through healthy veins as the treated spider veins fade away. Endovenous ablation can close damaged veins, redirecting blood to other healthier ones. An ablation procedure requires local anesthesia while your doctor directs a delicate needle fiber into the vein to treat it with small pulses of radio frequency light. Each of these treatments is minimally invasive, and neither requires a lengthy recovery time.
Varicose veins are large, swollen blood vessels that typically develop in the legs and can be painful. Risk factors for varicose veins can be similar to those for spider veins, including obesity, pregnancy, older age, and family history. Varicose veins are typically very uncomfortable and even painful for some patients. Treatment for varicose veins includes traditional sclerotherapy and ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy as well as microphlebectomy, which is the surgical removal of varicose veins through a small incision in your leg. If weight is a concern, the specialists at Vascular Health Center can offer nutritional counseling as well.
