About Venous Disease
Veins return blood from the rest of your body back to the heart to recirculate. To return blood to your heart, the veins in your legs must work against gravity. Tiny valves in your veins open as blood flows toward your heart and close to prevent blood from flowing backward.
Vein disease can have many causes. As we age, the elasticity of our veins is lowered causing them to stretch out and our valves to become weaker. Pregnancy is another cause of vein disease because pregnancy increases the level of blood in the body and decreases the flow of blood in the lower limbs. Obesity can cause varicose veins because additional weight increases the pressure on the legs. Prolonged periods of standing or sitting and activities that increase venous pressure (running, body building, etc.) also increase your risk of vein disease.
Dark purple or blue veins, indicating varicose veins, are seen as an early sign of vein disease. Veins may also appear twisted and bulged. Symptoms such as leg pain, fatigue, swelling, cramping, and achy legs may also signify vein disease.
Fortunately, varicose and spider veins can be treated. Dr. Sinnathamby is a vascular specialist who will take a comprehensive approach in planning your treatment. Advanced technology offered at Varicose to Perfect allows us to treat patients conveniently and comfortably- with little to no down time.
We offer Vein Gogh, Ambulatory Hook Plebectomy, Endovenous Laser Treatment, and Sclerotherapy. It is important to treat varicose veins to avoid complications such as hyperpigmentation, lipodermosclerosis, or venous leg ulcers. Untreated, varicose veins can affect your daily quality of life with increased heaviness, pain and cramping in the legs.
If you have any signs or symptoms of vein disease, or would like to learn more about our treatments and how they can help you relieve leg pain and unsightly veins, schedule your appointment with Dr. Sinnathmaby in our Springboro office today!
At Varicose to Perfect in Springboro, OH, we help you restore healthy veins for less pain- and improved function. Patients who suffer from venous disease have veins that are dilated and valves that do not function properly. As a result, blood flows in the wrong direction and causes bulges, which appear as varicose, and spider veins.
