What are the signs and symptoms of vein disease?
Before we discuss the signs and symptoms of vein disease, it might be beneficial to explain venous insufficiency. Chronic venous insufficiency is a medical condition wherein your vein valves collapse. The vein valves are usually responsible for effective one-way blood circulation to the heart. When they collapse, the force of gravity makes your blood flow backward and accumulate in your leg veins. The continued accumulation of blood in the leg veins leads to various vein problems, including spider veins, varicose veins, etc.
The following are the early signs and symptoms of vein disease:
- Leg heaviness
- Restless leg syndrome
- Frequent leg cramps
- Leg swelling
- Leg pain
- Spider veins — dense clusters of blood vessels on the skin’s surface
- Varicose veins — dense, tangled, knotted, and bulging veins
- Symptoms worsen at the end of the day or after long periods of inactivity

What happens if I don’t seek varicose vein treatments?
Venous insufficiency is a chronic condition that worsens with time as more blood continues accumulating in your leg veins. If you don’t seek vein treatment, your vein problems will continue escalating until you experience other problems.
The following are some of the advanced complications of untreated vein disease:
- Profuse bleeding from the varicose veins if they burst due to over-dilation.
- Skin discoloration due to the lack of effective blood circulation in the leg veins.
- Skin disease — the formation of rust-colored and leathery patches on the skin.
- Leg ulcers or non-healing wounds on the skin’s surface due to ineffective blood circulation.
- Deep vein thrombosis — blood clots formed within the leg veins.

What are the best treatments for spider veins and varicose veins?
Minimally invasive procedures are the best treatments for spider veins and varicose veins because they’re safe, effective, painless, and conclude within an hour with no downtime. However, there are several minimally invasive vein treatments, including radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, VenaSeal, sclerotherapy, and ambulatory phlebectomy. The ideal vein treatment for you depends on your specific condition.
The following is a brief description of the best minimally invasive treatments for spider veins and varicose veins:
- Radiofrequency Ablation: Thermal energy is channeled via a catheter to collapse the diseased vein.
- Endovenous Laser Ablation: Laser energy is channeled via a laser fiber to collapse the diseased vein.
- VenaSeal: A medical-grade adhesive is injected into the diseased vein to seal its walls.
- Ambulatory Phlebectomy: The bulging veins are extracted via small incisions on the skin’s surface.
- Sclerotherapy: A special sclerosant solution is injected into the spider veins to make them seal shut and get absorbed by the body.
