Now is the perfect time of year to make your varicose & spider veins disappear

If you are one of the 50 million Americans with varicose or spider veins, it is now easier than ever to receive minimally invasive, in-office treatments that will allow you to have a happier, healthier life. Gone are the days of hospital-based procedures, prolonged recovery times and painful stripping procedures.

Varicose veins are twisted, enlarged veins, often-dark blue in color, near or raised above the surface of the skin. They are often a symptom of an underlying condition called Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI).

Here are 7 Signs & Symptoms of CVI

  1. Visible bulgy veins on the leg.
  2. Leg pain or discomfort. Complaints of leg heaviness, pain, itching, or cramps, especially after prolonged sitting or standing.
  3. Tired or heavy legs. Signs of fatigue after moderate amounts of activity.
  4. Legs that swell. Swelling that tends to worsen as the day goes by.
  5. Discoloration or scarring of the skin. Darker areas of skin or redness in the area just above the ankle.
  6. Open wounds or ulcers along your lower legs or ankles. This occurs after experiencing a long period of skin discoloration and is referred to as a venous stasis ulcer.
  7. Restless legs or leg cramps. An irresistible need to move ones legs in order to alleviate an uncomfortable feeling of itching and/or aching of the legs at usually at night.
