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 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 sometimes be debilitating, limit a person’s mobility, and affect their quality of life.

Common symptoms include:

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

““The decision to have my career path merge with the treatment of venous insufficiency came after a family member received treatment for this same medical condition. My mother-in-law had long suffered with not only unsightly varicose veins, but pain and swelling in both of her legs as well. She had been told by several physicians that there was nothing more that could be done for her condition and that she would have to make the most of her situation. That was until she met the doctors at Center for Vein Restoration. They helped her to believe that a new reality was possible and after completing an aggressive treatment plan she was able to see her new reality firsthand. Her legs began to feel lighter, less painful, and more attractive at the same time. The procedures that were performed to correct her venous insufficiency made a dramatic change in her life. Having seen this change I decided to investigate this career.””
