Varicose VeinsVaricose Veins

Twenty-five percent of adults and half of all people over fifty have Varicose Veins. Many men and women are reluctant to show their legs. Yet advanced laser therapies can reduce or eliminate unsightly veins in less than an hour in a single office visit.

The most common cause of vein disease is heredity. Pregnancy, especially multiple pregnancies, is a contributing cause of vein disease. Other factors include age, obesity and jobs that require long periods of standing.

Varicose Vein Symptoms

Symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency include aching pain, swelling, leg heaviness, night cramps, discoloration of the skin, tired legs with prolonged standing and protruding veins.

Varicose veins generally continue to grow in size over time and can result in substantial pain and complications if not treated. Chronic venous insufficiency can cause ulceration, which can be very difficult to treat.

A consultation with your doctor is recommended to determine which treatment is the right one for your legs and medical circumstances.

Ultrasound guidance

At ACP Vein Treatment Center we use the latest ultrasound technology to guide your procedure. The ultrasound allows us to thoroughly explore the deep and superficial venous system. By combining an accurate assessment of the size and function of the blood vessels, we are able to pinpoint exactly which veins contain leaky valves. This allows us to develop a treatment plan just for you.
