What are Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins are twisted, enlarged veins, often dark blue in color, and near or raised above the surface of the skin. Varicose veins are often a symptom of an underlying condition called venous insufficiency. When valves within veins cannot function correctly, some blood flows down the leg instead up upward like it does in healthy veins. The blood overfills and distend the branches of the superficial veins under the skin, causing them to twist and distend.

Check out these frequently asked questions about varicose vein treatments.
Do varicose veins only develop in the legs?
Varicose veins can develop anywhere, but they most often develop in the legs and feet.
How long is recovery after varicose vein surgery?
Recovery from varicose vein surgery can take anywhere from 1-4 weeks. After two weeks, you should be able to resume all your normal activities. You can speed up your recovery by elevating your legs and wearing compression socks.
Who is at the highest risk of developing varicose veins?
Some of the demographics most likely to develop varicose veins are people over the age of 40, women, and people with added body weight like obesity. Genetics plays a large role and pregnancy, especially multiples.
Can spider veins turn into varicose veins?
Spider veins are not the same as varicose veins. Although spider veins can eventually turn into varicose veins, it’s rare. Spider veins are considered a cosmetic concern.
Are compression stockings actually an effective treatment?
Compression stockings can help reduce pain and swelling in the legs associated with varicose veins. However, compression stockings can’t cure or treat varicose veins – our team can help you explore treatment options at our office.
If I have varicose veins, should I change how I exercise?
Low-impact exercises are best for varicose veins. Walking or biking can help build the muscles in the calves and improve circulation without putting strain on the veins. Avoid exercises like squats or heavy lifting that put pressure on your legs or abdomen.
Will one procedure eliminate my varicose veins?
Varicose veins treatments typically achieve good results with a single treatment, although it can be difficult to judge how many treatments you’ll need without a consultation. Our team will ensure you have a complete treatment schedule for your unique circumstances.
What will happen if I leave my varicose veins untreated?
Varicose veins can worsen over time and cause an increase in uncomfortable symptoms. If left untreated, they can eventually develop into serious circulatory concerns including increased risk of deep vein thrombosis and irreversible skin changes.
How Are Varicose Veins Diagnosed?
Varicose veins can typically be diagnosed using a simple physical examination. In some cases, ultrasound can be used to view blood flow in the legs.
What Is Sclerotherapy and How Does It Work?
Sclerotherapy can treat varicose and spider veins. It involves injecting a special solution into the veins which causes the vein to scar and close, rerouting blood flow through healthier veins.
What Happens When a Varicose Vein is removed By Treatment?
When a varicose vein is removed, it does not negatively impact circulation in the area. Blood flow simply reroutes to other, healthier veins instead.
