What Are Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are essentially enlarged veins close to the skin caused by a weakening of valves throughout the body. Because pressure is placed on the veins when an obstruction is present, the ones closest to the skin become enlarged and thus become highly visible. Aside from being cosmetically unappealing, varicose veins can also come with serious health risks. Many who suffer from this condition experience pain in the lower limbs, excessive fatigue, itching, and cramping.

What Are Spider Veins?

Spider veins are not quite as severe as varicose veins, but they can still be uncomfortable and noticeable underneath the skin. Spider veins are caused when an obstruction causes the capillaries, which are tiny blood vessels nearest to the skin's surface, to dilate. While varicose and spider veins are much more common in women and are believed to be tied to hormones, they can occur in men as well.

Treatment Options

Fortunately, there are many treatment options available for those who suffer from varicose veins in the Saline, Milford and surrounding areas. Depending on the severity of the varicose or spider veins, it is possible that a minimally invasive procedure can be performed. Sclerotherapy, for example, is a common option for those with spider veins and is one that we can perform right here in our office. Catheter ablation is a minimally invasive procedure available to some with varicose veins as well. For those with a less serious condition, it is possible that special stockings may be fitted to the patient's legs right here in our office. These stockings, if worn properly over time, can help to reduce the symptoms of spider and varicose veins.

What About Cost?

Many people do nothing about their varicose veins initially because they think they simply cannot afford the treatment. However, what many people do not realize is that this type of treatment is typically covered by their medical insurance. After all, varicose veins are considered to be a severe medical condition and not just a cosmetic treatment. We're happy to help you answer any questions you may have about insurance and billing.
