When To Choose Vein Care Specialists

When To Choose Vein Care Specialists

Going to a specialist is not everyone’s first inclination when they have what may be perceived to be a minor health issue. This is certainly true when people first notice the signs of spider and varicose veins. A general physician may be the first choice in medical care for the condition when, in fact, vein care specialists are the best choice.

Another common mistake made by the general public is to assume the varicose and spider veins are only cosmetic in nature. These problems often signal deeper and potentially more serious issues which can be evaluated and assessed by vein care specialists.

This not only gives you peace of mind in addressing your current health concerns, but it also provides you with the knowledge and education about your veins that you need. With this information, you can make informed decisions, lifestyle changes, and learn the signs to watch for in the future.

Pain and Discomfort

While many patients experience very little pain and discomfort with spider veins, even these smaller versions of protruding veins can be problematic. With larger varicose veins pain and discomfort as well as swelling, burning and itching may also be a factor.

When you experience any discomfort associated with varicose or spider veins, it is time to see vein care specialists. Don’t go to cosmetic surgeons or general care physicians; instead, see a specialist as soon as possible.

Uncomfortable with Vein Appearance

Today, with the wide range of treatment options available, there is no need to go through life uncomfortable with the look of your legs, feet or other parts of your body. While varicose veins are most common on the lower limbs, they can occur on the arms as well. Spider veins can occur elsewhere on the body, including the face, and can become a source of discomfort about your physical appearance.

Vein care specialists will meet with a patient for an initial consultation and medical evaluation. At this time, the specialist will discuss treatment options, many which are very different than those offered just a few years ago.

Today’s vein care specialists can provide minimally invasive, highly effective treatments for varicose and spider veins. These treatments are often completed in-office with simple injections into the problematic veins, a procedure known as sclerotherapy.

There are many other options, including laser treatments, which have virtually no recovery time until you can resume normal activities. These new treatment options are only available through vein care specialists, making these clinics the key to effective varicose and spider vein treatment.

The vein care specialists at Chicago Vein Institute provide thousands of varicose and spider vein treatments per year. To see more about our treatment options, visit us at www.chicagoveininstitute.com. You can also follow us on Twitter.
