1. Bulging Veins Are More Than an Eyesore

If you have enlarged, bulging veins in your legs, you’d probably like them to disappear. Varicose veins cause everything from self-consciousness to frustrating symptoms like achiness, heaviness, and cramping in your legs. Millions of people develop varicose veins, so you aren’t alone in dealing with them. But what many people don’t realize is that they’re more than just an eyesore. They often stem from an underlying disease called Chronic Venous Insufficiency, wherein a valve fails within a vein, causing blood to accumulate and create these bulging veins. This disease has several ramifications beyond the visible varicosities. Visit a qualified vein doctor in the Hamptons to eliminate the visual vein damage as well as the causative disease.  

Many people are sure they don’t like their spider or varicose veins, but unsure what to do about it. A vein doctor Hamptons residents trust offers 10 tips.

2. Spider Veins Aren’t Merely a Cosmetic Issue

Much like varicose veins, spider veins cause millions of people dissatisfaction with their skin’s appearance. And just like varicose veins, the cause is often more than skin deep. Some vein centers treat spider veins superficially, with surface lasers or injections at the skin’s surface. However, if you’re one of the many with undiagnosed Chronic Venous Insufficiency, this might be a temporary fix. Spider veins will continue to form until the root cause is addressed. Our medical group pinpoints the faulty valves within your deeper veins that cause these spider veins to form at the surface. By treating the disease, as well as the damaged veins, we provide long-term results for our patients.

3. A Vein Is a Blood Vessel That Pumps Blood to the Heart

Why is it important to treat spider veins and varicose veins? Because veins have a very important job to do, which is pumping blood back to your heart to retrieve oxygen. When veins are defective, your circulation is compromised, which means you’re not only prone to spider and varicose veins, but also symptoms like swelling, venous eczema, hyperpigmentation, venous ulcerations, and blood clots. It’s important to repair your circulation by closing off faulty veins so that blood can flow into viable veins and back to your heart. Don’t assume your vein damage is simply a cosmetic issue. Talk to our vein doctors about the benefits of treating defective veins.

4. A Trained Vein Doctor in Hamptons Identifies Vein Disease

Unfortunately, some vein centers aren’t equipped to identify vein disease, or to treat the deeper veins that cause spider and varicose veins to form. Treating veins from a strictly cosmetic perspective is not only ineffective for many patients, it can also be dangerous. Ignoring vein disease increases the odds of greater proliferation of telangiectasias and varicosities, and also increases the risk of serious complications like bleeding that’s hard to control, slow-healing ulcerations, and deep vein thrombosis. Choose a doctor who checks for vein disease before treating your veins, if they think your symptoms suggest it.

5. Varicose Vein Treatment Requires an Expert Vein Doctor

Varicose veins are not uniform in severity from one patient to another. Some veins are larger, more tortuous (twisted), and symptomatic than others. In addition, each patient’s venous anatomy and medical history are different. Varicose vein treatment requires an expert’s insight to determine the right course of action. This might include ultrasound scans to locate connecting veins and a close inspection of the blood vessel to identify the best treatment. Some veins will require a combination of treatments, or the skill of a vascular surgeon. Your vascular system is not something to cut corners on. Do your research and choose a reputable vein doctor for great results. Varicose vein treatment is now remarkably safe, fast, and gentle, provided you choose a well-trained physician.  

6. Each Hampton Vein Clinic Has Different Qualifications

Vein treatment has changed dramatically in the last few decades and some vein centers haven’t kept up. If a Hamptons vein center is still recommending surgeries like phlebectomy for most patients, it’s likely they aren’t trained in newer techniques. Vein stripping is no longer a first-line treatment for the majority of patients. So, choose a medical group that’s qualified to perform the latest, minimally invasive procedures like VenaSeal, Varithena, sclerotherapy, and radiofrequency ablation.

7. Pick an Accredited Vein Center with Certified Doctors

Accreditation and board certification are not guaranteed when you choose a vein center. In fact, being accredited by the IAC and being board certified in vein medicine are both rare distinctions in the vein treatment community. Many different practitioners treat veins, but only those who are board certified in venous medicine have completed specific training, beyond their medical degree, to specialize in veins. This makes a tremendous difference not only in their skill and technique, but also in the equipment and procedures they’re trained to use. Accreditation further solidifies their reputation, since it’s a voluntary, extensive review of their medical clinic, yielding an unbiased verification of their expertise.  

8. Choose a Pro Like Dr. Thomas Arnold (30 Years’ Experience)

If you want impeccable results, choose a vein expert like Dr. Thomas Arnold, who has 30 years of experience with veins. Dr. Arnold is practiced in all of the latest vein treatments and provides a broad range of options to his patients. Treating everything from the tiniest spider veins to the most tortuous varicose veins, he has a proven track record of beautiful results. Dr. Thomas Arnold is trained as a vascular surgeon but recommends minimally invasive treatments whenever possible. His cutting edge procedures are far gentler, quicker, and more effective than vein surgery tactics used in previous decades. With 30 years as a vein expert, he has witnessed every advancement and participated in research, conventions, and medical text development, making him an expert other doctors turn to for advice.   

9. Schedule an Appointment Soon for Best Results

One of the best tips to follow is to schedule an appointment as soon as damaged veins or symptoms appear. Spider and varicose vein treatment is most effective when it’s addressed early. Furthermore, vein disease left untreated becomes a great burden to the patient, causing complications like Restless Legs Syndrome, skin discoloration and stasis dermatitis. If you’re considering vein treatment, don’t delay. Our caring team won’t recommend treatment if you don’t need it. And if you do, you’ll be happy to know that most of our treatments are minimally invasive and completed in 30 minutes or less, with no downtime.
