    1 in 4 Americans suffer from chronic venous insufficiency. Though common, it’s important to get vein disease treated early to avoid potentially dangerous complications.

    There can be both physical and cosmetic symptoms of venous insufficiency. The most common of these include swelling, pain, and itchiness in the legs and ankles, as well as darkened and enlarged veins.

  • Treatment is Fast & Minimally-Invasive

    With advances in technology, varicose and spider veins can be treated with different types of minimally-invasive procedures. We offer the best of them here at Center for Vein Restoration.

Spider Veins and Varicose Veins:
Two Signs of Vein Disease

What are spiders veins?

Often resembling spider webs or thin tree branches, spider veins are small, dilated blood vessels near the surface of the skin. They can be red, purple, or blue in color, and usually appear on the legs, chest, or face. Though they rarely indicate a serious health problem, spider veins on the legs can cause uncomfortable sensations and are a sign of underlying venous reflux, or "hidden varicose veins."

What are varicose veins?

Varicose veins are visible, swollen veins, which tend to develop in the calf and groin areas of the leg. Blood pools in the vein, forcing it to expand, resulting in a twisted or knotted appearance. Because of the increased pressure in the vein, varicose veins are more likely to cause serious aching or throbbing pain, especially after sitting or standing for a long period of time.

Diagnosing Vein Disease

Venous insufficiency affects the lives of 1 in 4 Americans, yet it remains largely misunderstood and commonly misdiagnosed. We've come to accept many of the symptoms–such as leg pain and aches–as normal signs of aging. However, leg pain is anything but a sign of aging.

But we have good news. If your leg pain is in fact due to chronic venous insufficiency, it's going to be very treatable. And, we've made the first stage of diagnosing easy with our self-assessment, so if you want to better understand your veins and whether or not they'll benefit from treatment, go ahead and start your assessment.
