Benefits of Vein Treatment
One of the benefits of vein treatment from a dedicated team of vein specialists is their ability to pinpoint the cause of your symptoms. Our team uses the latest advanced equipment to diagnose damaged veins, and will work with you to develop a personalized plan to provide relief, reduce risks, and make strides toward healthier legs.
When properly fitted and worn, compression can relieve some of the most uncomfortable symptoms and signs of venous disease:

Stationary standing or prolonged sitting can result in distended, leaky veins, which may or may not be visible under the skin. This increases pressure on the vessel walls, causing them to stretch and dilate. Although these veins may or may not be visible under the skin, the increased pressure within them pushes fluid out into the surrounding tissue and skin, causing swelling in the lower legs.
When veins leak and swelling remains uncontrolled, other problems may develop:
Advanced symptoms from varicose veins may include throbbing, burning, and cramping in your lower legs, particularly after standing for long periods of time. Another, more serious condition that may also cause leg throbbing is deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which is a blood clot in the deep veins of your leg. Often called the “silent killer,” as many as 300,000 people each year are affected when these blood clots break free and travel to the lung, where they become a possibly fatal pulmonary embolism.
Our team controls throbbing, achy veins as well as more advanced issues with advanced vein therapy:
Healthy venous circulation relies on walking and the contraction of the calf muscle to pump blood through the veins back to your heart. One-way valves prevent blood from flowing backwards. If these valves are damaged or function poorly, pooling of venous blood can occur, causing symptoms of vein disease, including leg cramps. It is possible to suffer with vein problems, including cramping and even swelling, and have no noticeable varicose or spider veins.
The signs and symptoms of venous disease range from subtle to obvious:
Topical treatments for leg itching won’t provide lasting relief if the problem is an underlying vein issue. With advanced vein disease, fluid leaks out of the veins and causes your skin to become irritated, dry, scaly, and eventually firm. Our minimally invasive procedures close off the damaged veins and reroute the blood through healthy veins.
For patients with early indications of vein disease, and those who wish to prevent further damage, there are several non-surgical treatment options available:
