We Help You Overcome Pain & Embarrassment With Your Legs

Do You Experience…

If so, you may be eligible for non-invasive varicose vein treatment.

What is Venous Reflux?

Do you have significant bulgy veins that cause an unsightly appearance and sometimes persistent tingling pain?
You may be suffering from vein disease. Venous reflux, also called Chronic Venous Insufficiency, happens when your veins can no longer circulate blood properly due to a lack of elasticity.

I have been a patient of Dr. Kowalski ‘s Center for Vein Medicine for several years. I am pleased to recommend his practice as he has provided me with much information and services that have enhanced my health. His team is also knowledgeable and very skilled. I was there most recently for an ultrasound, done by Mary Tamac. She was very proficient and then informative, explaining what needed to be done and a plan for accomplishing it. For me, a compassionate supportive professional is at least as important as their ability to do the job. I certainly found that at The Center for Vein Medicine.

Why You Shouldn't Leave Your Varicose Veins Untreated

While varicose veins are often seen as a cosmetic concern, it’s important to recognize that without treatment, they can pose serious health risks.
  • Persistent Pain: Varicose veins contribute to venous reflux, disrupting proper blood circulation and leading to diminished oxygen delivery, resulting in muscle cramps and localized pain.
  • Risk of Infection: Venous conditions may lead to the development of leg ulcers, increasing susceptibility to skin lesions and potential complications due to exposure to bacteria.
  • Bleeding: Varicose veins, located closer to the skin’s surface and prone to inflammation, are more susceptible to injury and subsequent bleeding incidents.
  • Swelling: Hindered blood flow within the legs can cause reflux, resulting in swelling and discomfort due to inefficient circulation.
  • Blood Clots: Blood pooling in the legs heightens the risk of clot formation, which could dislodge and travel through the bloodstream, potentially triggering serious conditions such as deep vein thrombosis.

Early intervention is crucial when it comes to addressing varicose veins. Do not postpone seeking treatment.

FAQs

Most frequent questions and answers

In your leg, you have two sets of veins. They are called deep veins and superficial veins.

Deep veins are in the deeper part of the leg where the muscles are, and superficial veins are right under the skin.

In a normal person, the blood circulates from the feet toward the heart in both veins.

When someone has venous insufficiency, the blood will go up the deep veins and back into the superficial vein.

The blood will start pooling in the superficial veins.

Since the superficial veins are closest to the skin, they will bulge and create varicose veins. They are often bluish or purple.

Spider Veins are essentially a smaller version of varicose veins. They are red, purple, and blue vessels that are also twisted and turning. They are most often seen on the legs, chest, or face.

No. Varicose veins can occur deeper in the leg, where one can’t see them. Varicose veins are classified under the spectrum of venous insufficiency disease.

Venous insufficiency disease causes leg discomfort, swelling of the ankles and leg, itching, and weariness. Other signs and symptoms may be prickling, cramping, aching, and heaviness of the lower limbs after prolonged standing.

Keep an eye out for these symptoms besides simply visible veins.

In short, no. Exercise and compression stockings may help reduce some of the symptoms of varicose veins, but usually, only medical treatment can eliminate a varicose vein.

Progression of varicose veins can be dangerous as they may later become venous ulcerations. When left without treatment, complications may include rashes, infections, bleeding, sores, and blood clots.

In rare cases, varicose veins can cause deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism, which is life-threatening.

1) Consult – We start you with a consultation where you will be listened to and encounter a friendly staff that will ensure you get the best care. On the first visit, that care will come from our expertly trained team, including Dr. Kowalski and an ultrasonographer.

2) Ultra Sound – After the consult, we move on to the assessment, providing you with an accurate diagnosis. You will get the same-day ultrasound and results on-site while you see the provider. This will get you back to life as swiftly as possible.

3) Treatment Plan – After we conclude our assessment, we will provide you with a treatment plan.

There are many different options, such as Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA), sclerotherapy, pneumatic compression, and more. We will ensure you get the perfect customized treatment based on your needs and outcome goals.

It is normal to have some minor discomfort during the procedure. We will do everything we can to make this as relaxing and comfortable an experience as possible. After the procedure, patients may experience minor bruising or discomfort in the area of the treated vein, which normally resolves in 3-4 weeks. Overall, patients report minimal pain/discomfort and can go back to doing the things they love.

Patients usually return to work and activities on the very same day. Very little downtime is needed for our treatments.
