In normal veins, tiny valves keep blood flowing toward the heart. However, when those valves fail, the blood flows in the reverse direction (reflux). This causes pressure and pooling of blood inside the vein, resulting in dilation and bulging, or “varicose veins.
Varicose veins are large and unappealing and can cause inflammation, discomfort, burning, itching, swelling, bleeding and pain. They can also cause serious potential health risks, including leg ulcers and blood clots in the veins, which themselves can lead to life-threatening problems.
While some people seek vein treatment for cosmetic improvement, many seek relief from pain. Help is available. Phlebology is the study and treatment of vein diseases, including varicose veins. Our on-staff phlebologists can work with you on the proper treatment for your specific case – from compression stockings to sclerotherapy and laser treatments.
