Leg-vein disease is progressive. If left unattended, a few spider veins are likely to progress into many spider veins or, even worse, varicose veins. If you have any of the conditions mentioned above, even if your symptoms are mild and non-debilitating, you should come see Advanced Vein and Vascular Solutions for an assessment and possible treatment.
Early intervention can slow the progression of disease and prevent future problems. It can also reduce the number of treatments required. Postponing treatments exposes you to increased risk of blood-clot complications, including superficial phlebitis and the more serious deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
In years past, people tended to postpone leg-vein treatments as long as possible. There was some logic to that because the older procedures were only marginally effective and often had to be repeated every few years.
But times have changed. Modern techniques treat the root causes of vein disease, so the results are comprehensive and durable.
Chronic venous insufficiency problems that at first seem minor can eventually cause physical limitations and disability, even in young people. Most treatments can relieve discomfort, eliminate disabilities, and give people more stamina on their feet. Often those who were disabled returned to work and resume exercising.
