Varicose Veins

Varicose veins affect one out of every four people. While women are more likely to have them, twenty-five percent of men have them as well. Hormones may play a role in women. In men, those who stand for long periods of time at work or spend a lot of time driving are prone to get varicose veins. There is also an increased chance of developing them if there’s a family history. While the condition can cause leg pain, swelling and be a cosmetic concern, the good news is, it’s easy to diagnose and the latest treatment options are better than ever before.

Normal veins have one-way valves that help keep blood flowing toward your heart. If the valves become weak or damaged, blood can flow backwards or reflux and pool in your leg veins, causing them to swell and become varicose. Sometimes they are a cosmetic issue, but for others, they cause aching, pain, throbbing and discomfort. In some cases, they can lead to skin ulcers, bleeding, and even blood clots that can be life threatening. No matter what, they are a warning sign for potentially larger problems that the doctors at CiC treat.

After you live with varicose veins for a while, you just accept that this is the way your legs feel. But that shouldn’t be the case. These symptoms can have an impact on the quality of your life. And, aren’t something to be ignored as they are a sign there may be an underlying medical condition. Treating varicose veins and related vein disorders is an important step toward your good vascular health.

The vein specialists at CiC Vein use minimally invasive procedures including laser treatment and VenaSeal™ which are highly effective techniques with less discomfort and downtime than previous treatment options.

Come see us, we can treat the medical condition causing your varicose veins. And, your legs will feel and look better too!
