Varicose veins are a common vascular condition that affects millions of people worldwide, often causing discomfort and embarrassment.

At Vein Specialists of the Carolinas, we recognize the impact of varicose veins on our patients’ lives and strive to provide comprehensive information about their symptoms and effective treatment options.


Symptoms of Varicose Veins:

Varicose veins are enlarged, twisted veins that usually appear on the legs and can cause a range of symptoms. Some of the common signs include:

  1. Visible, Bulging Veins: One of the primary indicators of varicose veins is the appearance of swollen, twisted veins just beneath the skin’s surface. These veins may be blue or purple in color.
  2. Aching or Pain: Patients often experience pain or aching sensations, especially after standing or sitting for extended periods.
  3. Itching or Burning: Varicose veins can cause skin irritation, leading to itching or a burning sensation around the affected area.
  4. Swelling: Legs and ankles may swell due to the impaired blood circulation associated with varicose veins.
  5. Fatigue or Heaviness: Individuals with varicose veins may feel a sense of heaviness or fatigue in their legs, particularly towards the end of the day.

Treatments for Varicose Veins:

Fortunately, there are various effective treatments available to alleviate the symptoms of varicose veins and improve the overall appearance of the affected areas:

  1. Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA): This minimally invasive procedure uses laser energy to close off the problematic vein, redirecting blood flow to healthier veins.
  2. Sclerotherapy: In this procedure, a special solution is injected into the affected vein, causing it to collapse and eventually fade from view.
  3. Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA): Similar to EVLA, RFA utilizes radiofrequency energy to close off the vein, promoting improved blood circulation.
  4. Ambulatory Phlebectomy: This outpatient procedure involves the removal of smaller varicose veins through tiny incisions, providing relief from symptoms and enhancing the aesthetic appearance of the skin.

Results and the Liberation from Varicose Veins:

Patients who undergo treatment for varicose veins often experience a significant improvement in their quality of life. The results of these procedures are not only aesthetic but also contribute to a sense of freedom and well-being.

  1. Pain Relief: Many patients report a noticeable reduction in pain and discomfort after treatment. The elimination of the pressure caused by varicose veins can lead to a more active and pain-free lifestyle.
  2. Improved Appearance: Beyond the medical benefits, treating varicose veins enhances the cosmetic appearance of the affected areas, boosting self-confidence and self-esteem.
  3. Increased Mobility: With the alleviation of symptoms such as swelling and heaviness, patients often find themselves able to engage in physical activities with greater ease and enjoyment.
  4. Quick Recovery: Minimally invasive procedures mean shorter recovery times, allowing patients to resume their daily activities promptly.

At Vein Specialists of the Carolinas, we understand the impact of varicose veins on both physical and emotional well-being.
