Chronic Vein Disease & Leg Veins

With the summertime upon us, women across the Tri-State area are switching up their wardrobes and bringing out their best skirts and summer dresses to match the gorgeous summers in New York. And with near triple digit temperatures creeping into the forecast, nothings stopping them from heading to the beach and dawning their favorite swimsuits, except of course those dreaded spider veins and varicose veins! For years, across the country, as well as the world, nothing has prevented women from enjoying beach season more than those dreaded leg veins. According to Dr. Eric S Treiber, of Treiber Dermatology, more and more patients ever year are presenting with these all-too-common vascular issues – in fact, in recent years, he has determined more chronic cases than ever before. To learn more about these awful leg vein issues, and what your treatment options might be, read on below.

Now, cosmetically, these awful leg veins – varicose veins and spider veins, are bad enough, but while they might be an aesthetic issue for most women, for some that can present with a whole different set of symptoms that makes things that much worse! According to Dr. Eric S Treiber, and his team at Treiber Dermatology, some of the most common symptoms associated with these unsightly leg veins include:

· Leg Pain & Discomfort
· Heaviness in the Legs
· Tiredness & Fatigue
· Cramping
· Restless Leg Syndrome
· Itching Legs

And much more. In many instances, unfortunately these symptoms connect with an unwanted issue known as chronic vein disease. In fact, according to Dr. Eric Treiber, there are many other physicians that are often unaware of the subtle signs and the potential impact of chronic vein disease. Many patients who suffer from this condition will experience leg vein issues that no matter how many times they are treated, they will have a strong tendency to return soon after treatment. In order to get the best results from treatment, here is one important treatment method to consult your physician about – sclerotherapy.

Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure done by your healthcare provider to treat uncomplicated spider veins and uncomplicated reticular veins. The treatment involves the injection of a solution into the affected veins.The solution causes the walls of the veins to become irritated and breakdown, causing the vein to essentially shrink and disappear into the body. The larger surrounding veins essentially “pick up the slack” for the lost vein. This causes the vein, which was once protruding out of the skin, to no longer be visible and the presence of unsightly spider veins to be gone.
