New Jersey Vein Specialist: Ways that varicose veins can impact your health and your life

Until it happens to you, it’s someone else’s problem. You know varicose veins are common, but you might think of them as merely a cosmetic concern that happens to everyone as they age. If you don’t have varicose veins yourself, you might not be aware of the many ways they can impact your health and your life.

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

The most important thing New Jersey vascular doctors want us to know is that varicose veins are the result of an underlying medical problem known as superficial venous insufficiency. Superficial venous insufficiency is a progressive condition, meaning it won’t go away on its own and it could have significant consequences for your health and your life.

You see, varicose veins develop when the valves and walls of our veins are damaged or weakened and can’t work as well to transport blood through our bodies. The blood can then pool in the veins of the lower extremities, causing swollen legs and ankles and those unsightly bulges we know of as varicose veins. Left untreated, the condition can worsen and cause circulation problems, deep vein thrombosis (blood clots) and leg ulceration. Unfortunately, many people aren’t aware of the potential seriousness of these consequences so they simply hide their varicose veins under clothing, and delay seeking vein disease treatment in NJ until their problems become quite serious.

What treatments are available for varicose veins?

The good news is that it doesn’t have to be this way. Modern NJ vein disease treatment is highly effective and minimally invasive, meaning it works really well and won’t slow you down like the treatments of a few decades ago. Microphlebectomy, sclerotherapy, and endovenous laser treatments can all be performed by Dr. Ahmad at our comfortable Comprehensive Vein Treatment Center offices, with no need to visit a hospital or experience lengthy recovery times. These procedures are all highly effective at removing or sealing off varicose veins, so that the body naturally reroutes blood through healthier veins, thus restoring your circulation. Sealed off veins are gradually reabsorbed by the body and disappear from your legs. “Minimally invasive” means the incisions are so tiny that they heal without scarring, leaving you with both prettier and healthier legs, with minimal discomfort and downtime.

The first step to eliminating the impact varicose veins have on your health and your life is a professional venous health evaluation by one of the best vein doctors in New Jersey, Dr. Ahmad. He’ll take a thorough medical and family history, and then he will examine your legs, possibly using painless ultrasound technology to visualize the veins deep beneath the surface of the skin. Then, he can recommend the best minimally invasive treatment options for your particular needs. Your treatments will only take about an hour each, and you’ll be back at your usual activities the very same day. You’ll be delighted with the results both in terms of your health and your aesthetic concerns. In short, you’ll get your life back! So take that firs step and call our office at 1-888-VEIN-DOC to schedule an appointment. We very much look forward to meeting you.
