5 Misconceptions About Vein Disease

When people think of vein disease, they picture varicose and spider veins. But vein diseases can manifest as serious medical conditions. Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or blood clots, and phlebitis (vein inflammation or blood clots close to the skin’s surface) can be life threatening if not treated. Peripheral venous disease (when vein valves fail to open and close properly) can also progress into dangerous conditions if not treated by a vein specialist.

How Sclerotherapy Works

Considered by many doctors as the treatment of choice for smaller veins, sclerotherapy is performed to lessen the appearance of spider veins. Many people undergo the procedure to get relief from the symptoms related to vein problems, including:

  • Aching
  • Swelling
  • Burning
  • Night cramps

Beyond the feelings of emotional stress and insecurity varicose veins can cause, they can also be the source of pain, fatigue, swelling and itchiness in the legs. Fortunately, advanced treatments can make them disappear.
