You might want to seek professional vein treatment if you are having problems like visible veins that can be seen through the skin or symptoms like numbness and tingling that are being caused by these conditions. Even if you think you might not want them treated right away, it may be a good idea to have the condition evaluated just to make sure it is not putting you at risk for more serious health problems.
Deep vein thrombosis is one of the most serious of the vascular conditions. It is the development of one or more blood clots in the vessels that are in the tissue deeper in the legs. Clots there have a greater chance of breaking free and traveling to the lungs. Many times, deep vein thrombosis does not produce any symptoms. When symptoms are present, however, they often consist of things like swelling in the legs, pain, tenderness or tired legs. These things can happen in both legs or in only one leg. Warm or discolored skin can also be a symptom. You should see a professional especially if these symptoms develop suddenly.
Varicose veins are among the most common reasons for seeking vein treatment. Veins that are visible through the skin, often bulging out as well, are signs of the condition. They happen when blood in the veins begins to pool because it is not flowing through the vessels properly. There are valves in the veins that are present to make sure the blood can only flow in the right direction. When these valves stop working properly, the pull of gravity can work against the natural flow of the blood and cause it to pool in the veins, putting pressure against the walls. This causes the vessels to enlarge. Many people seek vein treatment because of the impact these veins have on appearance.
Varicose veins can also cause symptoms that make daily life uncomfortable. They can cause itching, burning, aching, numbness and tingling in the legs. They can also cause the ankles and lower legs to swell. People who have these symptoms often find that they get worse later in the day, especially if a lot of time is spent standing or sitting in one position. If you are having these issues, you might want to explore your vein treatment options.
Another common reason for considering treatment is spider veins. They are like varicose veins, but the condition happens in smaller vessels. In most cases, they do not produce symptoms. It is usually an appearance issue that causes people to seek vein treatment.
