VEIN TREATMENT OPTIONS

DON’T WORRY. YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

Vein Disease in America

40 Million

Americans have venous insufficiency, yet only 1.9 million seek vein treatment each year.

41%

of women will suffer from varicose veins by age 50.

42%

of men have some form of venous insufficiency by age 60.

Types of Vein Conditions

There are two primary types of vein conditions—both of which are indicative of some level of underlying venous insufficiency. Spider veins are tangled groups of tiny blood vessels just under the skin’s surface that resemble spider webs, hence their name. Typically, they are red, blue or purple and are clearly visible on the thighs, lower legs and face. Varicose veins tend to be larger in diameter and are visibly bumpy or rope-like. Both types of vein conditions can produce physical symptoms—from leg pain and fatigue to itching, burning and nighttime restlessness. Only a comprehensive ultrasound scan can reveal what truly lies beneath your skin.

What are spider veins?

Spider veins are tangled groups of tiny blood vessels just under the skin’s surface that resemble spider webs or tree branches. Typically, they are red, blue or purple and are clearly visible on the thighs, lower legs and face.

Common symptoms include:

  • uncomfortable feeling in the legs
  • swelling
  • rash
  • skin ulcers
  • restless legs
  • itching around the veins
  • throbbing, cramping or aching

What are varicose veins?

Often painful and unsightly, varicose veins are visibly bumpy or rope-like and may occur in almost any part of the leg—most often in the back of the calf or on the inside of the leg between the groin and the ankle. Varicose veins can be sometimes be debilitating, limit a person’s mobility, and affect their quality of life.

Common symptoms include:

  • leg pain
  • swollen ankles
  • aching, or cramping
  • restless legs
  • fatigued or heavy-feeling legs
  • ulcers (in severe cases)
  • itching/burning
