Symptoms of vein disease

Far too often, people live with untreated medical issues. A massive population of U.S. citizens are living with vein disease that is either undiagnosed or untreated. The truth is that 1 in every 2 women, and 1 in every 3 men will experience venous insufficiency in their lifetime. All of these people are living with harsh symptoms that could be eliminated with with a simple, minimally invasive procedure.

First, a few questions for you to consider. Do your legs tire easily? Do you have aches or pain in your legs and ankles after spending a long period of time on your feet? Are you kept awake at night due to restless legs? Are you plagued by a constant itchy feeling in your legs? If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you more than likely are suffering from vein disease.

Why me?

Vein disease is caused by venous insufficiency. Valves within vein walls in the legs work to push blood flow upward back to the heart. When these valves become weakened, damaged, or simply deficient, blood flow is compromised. Reasons behind weakened dysfunctional valves span from heredity, pregnancy, to older age along with many other risk factors. When blood flow is halted or compromised, blood pools in the veins of the legs and causes the symptoms you may be experiencing. Vein disease appears on the external areas of the leg, as varicose, reticular and spider veins but can also be lurking beneath the surface.

What is happening to my skin?

The pooling blood in the leg veins causes distress to the blood vessels near the veins, that are attached to the skin. With vein disease, you may experience itchy, red, dry skin as a result of this inner irritation. Scratching the skin only makes symptoms worse, if you want relief from this horrible itchy sensation, treatment is the only option.

The appearance of unsightly varicose and spider veins

Are there enlarged, rope like veins popping out on your legs? These pesky blue, purple, red or dull green veins are varicose. Varicose veins may keep you out of shorts or a swimsuit due to their unsightly appearance. Maybe you have thin lines, appearing in clusters, like mini tree branches expanding all over your thighs or calves. These irritated blood vessels are spider veins and are also a telling sign of vein disease. Alpha Vein Clinic offers vein procedures that will rid you of your vein issues, so that you can love how you look in your own skin and also how your legs feel.

My feet need a break!

If the first thing you want to do when you get home from work, is throw your feet up on your coffee table, you could be experiencing some form of venous insufficiency. The pooling blood in your veins causes your legs and ankles to feel achy, tired and pained. The pressure from excess blood pounding on your vein walls, causes pain and leg swelling. This is also the reason you may be experiencing restless leg syndrome, a condition which is often wrongly attributed to other causes.

The good news is that vein treatment will relieve these awful symptoms. With Alpha Vein Clinic’s procedures you can go back to your regular day to day life, pain free. Vein disease is progressive and gets worse over time so most medical insurance plans cover the cost of treatment. Dr. Sassan Kaveh is a highly experienced vein specialist, who can perform the ClariVein and radiofrequency ablation procedures. Both procedures yield excellent clinical and cosmetic results, and will have you back to your regular routine within a couple of days.
