What Are Varicose and Spider Veins?
Affecting women more often than men, spider and varicose veins become more prevalent with age and commonly develop in the legs. Apart from their undesirable appearance, varicose veins may also cause problems with blood flow, swelling, and skin sores. For this reason, varicose and spider vein patients often report burning sensation, aching, and night cramps of the legs.
Even though roughly 50% of adults experience this condition, you no longer have to put up with swollen, painful, and unsightly veins. Varicose vein removal consists of a safe and minimally invasive procedure that produces remarkably fast and effective results with minimal (if any) discomfort.
Spider Veins vs. Varicose Veins
Spider veins (clinically known as telangiectasias) are typically very small thread-like veins observed on the surface of the skin. Blue, red, or purple in color, these veins often stick out like raised tunnels that are easily seen through the skin. Usually, spider veins develop in the legs and have a characteristic twisting and turning appearance.
Varicose veins also develop in the legs and ankles, but they can appear anywhere on your body. These raised and swollen blood vessels are typically larger than spider veins and often have a characteristic bulging appearance. Varicose veins result from a reflux of blood from the deep veins into the superficial veins located on the surface of your skin.
In order to effectively treat varicose veins, Dr. Omidi does not merely eliminate the unsightly surface vessels. He also addresses the abnormal connection between the deep veins and the superficial veins.
Is Vein Treatment Right for You?
Candidates for varicose veins or spider vein removal must be properly diagnosed with varicose veins or spider veins. This requires a physical examination and an ultrasound along with a thorough assessment of the patient’s medical history.
Once the diagnosis is confirmed, treatment options will be discussed during the consultation. Dr. Omidi will help you choose the right kind of varicose vein therapy most appropriate to treating your condition.
