Understanding and Treating Varicose Veins: Expert Care at NJ Vein Specialists

Varicose veins are a common yet often misunderstood condition, affecting millions of people worldwide. Characterized by enlarged, twisted veins that typically appear in the legs, they are more than just a cosmetic issue; varicose veins can cause discomfort and pain and even lead to more severe health complications if left untreated. At NJ Vein Specialists in Glen Rock, NJ, we combine our deep understanding of this condition with advanced treatment methods to provide effective and compassionate care.

What are varicose veins?

Varicose veins are enlarged, twisted veins commonly found in the legs. They occur when the valves in the veins, which regulate blood flow, become weakened or damaged. This weakness leads to blood pooling and vein enlargement. While often considered a cosmetic issue, a specialist should treat varicose veins.

What causes varicose veins?

Varicose veins develop when the valves in the veins that regulate blood flow become weak or damaged, causing blood to pool and veins to enlarge. Risk factors include age, genetics, pregnancy, prolonged standing or sitting, and obesity. Symptoms vary but often include leg pain, swelling, heaviness, fatigue, and noticeable blue or dark purple veins.

Diagnosing your condition: Our approach

At NJ Vein Specialists, our approach to diagnosing varicose veins involves a thorough evaluation, including a physical examination and state-of-the-art diagnostic tools like circulation ultrasound and blood flow mapping. This comprehensive assessment allows us to understand the severity of your condition and tailor a treatment plan that addresses your specific needs.

What is the best treatment for varicose veins?

The treatment will reflect your condition. At NJ Vein Specialists, we deliver a range of minimally invasive treatment options, each aimed at alleviating symptoms and improving vein appearance:

  • Sclerotherapy: A procedure where a solution is injected into the varicose veins, causing them to collapse and fade over time.
  • Laser therapy with Alma Veil: This advanced technique uses laser energy to close off varicose veins, minimizing discomfort and recovery time.
  • Vein ablation: A minimally invasive treatment that uses heat to close off the affected veins.
  • VenaSeal: This innovative approach involves the use of a medical adhesive to seal varicose veins.
  • Varithena: A foam treatment used to collapse and seal larger varicose veins.
  • Phlebectomy: A procedure for removing larger varicose veins through small incisions in the skin.
