New Jersey Vascular Doctor: Overcoming the main reasons people delay seeking vein treatment

When most of us think of varicose veins, we might shudder a little and imagine putting on long pants. Then we forget about them, because varicose veins are just a cosmetic problem, right? Many people assume they don’t need to seek treatment for varicose veins, because they believe varicose veins are simply an inevitable part of getting older.

What do Hamilton Square, NJ residents need to know about the consequences of varicose veins?

In fact, varicose veins are not just a cosmetic problem, and they could have some pretty serious consequences if NJ vein disease treatment is not sought.

This is because varicose veins are a symptom of underlying vein disease, or venous insufficiency. Venous insufficiency occurs when the walls and valves of our veins weaken, which can be due to aging, heredity and lifestyle factors such as being overweight or standing on the feet for extended periods of time.

The veins are then less able to properly transport blood up the body to the heart, causing blood to pool in the veins. This pooling may lead to swollen legs and ankles, spider veins and varicose veins. Left untreated, the condition worsens. Some people develop deep vein thrombosis, or blood clots, which can become deadly embolisms if a clot breaks free of its place in the legs and travels to the heart, brains, or lungs. Another serious consequence of untreated varicose veins is leg ulceration, which is a painful condition that is difficult to treat.

Of course, the more universal consequences include embarrassment about the unsightly veins, and having to put up with minor but continuous symptoms such as aching, heaviness, and poor circulation.

How can seeing a New Jersey vein specialist help me avoid these consequences?

Modern NJ vein disease treatment is highly effective at removing or sealing off diseased veins, thus restoring circulation, improving the appearance of the legs, and relieving patients of the symptoms of varicose veins. What’s more, the procedures only take about an hour to perform, meaning you’ll be on your way and back at your usual activities quickly. Things have come a long way in NJ vein disease treatment!
