Vancouver Varicose Vein Treatment

Are You Suffering from Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are rope-like blue vessels under the skin, usually ¼ inch or larger in diameter. They often appear as thick, knotted, discolored veins that have enlarged due to the excess pressure in the vascular system. Varicose veins are unsightly and often painful.

To discuss your options for varicose treatments, call (360) 448-2047 to speak with a vein specialist at Vancouver Vein & Surgical Center.

A clotted varicose vein causes a condition called phlebitis, in which the skin overlying the site of the clot becomes hot, red, and painful.

Besides the visible symptoms, physical symptoms of clotted varicose veins include:

  • Tiredness
  • Restless legs at night
  • Heaviness in the leg
  • Pain, aching, and itching
  • Throbbing and swelling
  • Burning or a cramping sensations

No matter what type of varicose vein you have, the experienced vein specialists at Vancouver Vein & Surgical Center can help. We utilize a diverse range of noninvasive and minimally invasive treatments for varicose veins.

How to Treat Varicose Veins

Varicose veins often bulge out of the skin as discolored, gnarled lumps. In addition to this, most patients experience itchiness, pain, and aches in the leg with varicose veins. Treatment for varicose veins will depend on the severity of the condition. Small to medium-sized varicose veins can often be treated with noninvasive procedures such as compression stocking therapy and sclerotherapy.

Severe cases of varicose veins will need to be treated with surgery. These are usually removed with a minimally invasive procedure that will allow the patient to return home the same day. The goal of most varicose vein surgeries is to close up the veins so that blood can no longer attempt to flow through them. Another surgical option is to remove varicose veins entirely. This treatment is often reserved for the most extreme cases of varicose veins.
