Is this your year to finally get help for your problem veins? The reason we’re asking is because vein problems are too often put on the backburner. For starters, aesthetic vein concerns are not typically covered by insurance, which can be a big obstacle for treatment. Secondly, vein treatments can be intimidating, especially if you aren’t aware of state-of-the-art minimally invasive vein treatments like the ones we offer at Chesapeake Vein Center & MedSpa! If you’re on the fence about seeking treatment for your varicose veins or other vein concerns, we want you to know that we can help!
Chesapeake Vein Center’s medical director and owner Dr. Surya Challa is a board-certified vein surgeon with years of experience treating all types of vascular concerns. He offers state-of-the-art vein imaging and treatments to clear away vein problems with surprising ease.
Are you a candidate for vein treatments in Hampton Roads? Here are a few signs you may be ready to seek professional help with us:
1. Your veins throb after standing for long periods during the day and/or your ankles and feet are swollen.
Throbbing veins are a common sign of venous insufficiency, which is a fancy way of saying that the walls or internal valves of your veins are injured. When your veins get injured, either by an injury or high blood pressure, it disrupts proper blood flow in your legs and feet, which can result in blood pooling and cause your damaged veins to become swollen and throb with excess blood. When superficial veins are damaged, it causes varicose veins, those large and ropy blue or purple protruding veins.
Swollen ankles and feet are another common symptom of venous insufficiency. When your veins are too week to keep blood flowing properly, it can cause your capillaries to leak fluid into the surrounding tissue, causing swelling.
2. You have missed work because your veins are acting up.
Did you know that more than 40% of adults have varicose veins? Many people never seek medical treatment because their varicose veins are rarely more than an aesthetic nuisance. However, many varicose vein sufferers do experience chronic pain and other symptoms that negatively impact their quality of life. When your veins start to interfere with your routine, you are well overdue for professional vein treatment!
3. You have a sore that won’t heal on your ankle, foot or leg.
If you are bothered by a sore on your ankle, foot or leg that won’t heal, you could have a venous ulcer, which is an open skin sore caused by damaged valves inside your veins. Vein valves control the blood pressure within your legs, allowing pressure to drop when you walk. However, when your valves start to malfunction, the blood pressure within your legs never decreases, which can encourage ulcers (open sores) to form over time.
