An Oahu Varicose Vein Doctor Publishes a New Article That Explains How Vein Disease Progresses If It

March 25, 2017. Kihei, Maui, HI. Vein Clinics of Hawaii announces the publication of a new article that discusses the most common vein disease – varicose veins – and how their symptoms progress as the disease goes through its different stages. According to these Hawaii vein specialists, these stages are important to know about, because left untreated varicose veins don’t “go away” or “get better on their own” – they get worse.

According to these vein care specialists in Kauai, “varicose veins may start as enlarged, discolored veins, but left untreated, the symptoms soon progress and cause swollen legs and ankles, changes to skin texture and color, and ulceration that can literally leave your legs covered with open, bleeding sores. This progression of the disease from bad to worse is completely predictable, but it’s also unnecessary, because varicose veins can be easily treated and eliminated.”

By publishing this article, these doctors hope that patients will learn how quickly CVI and varicose veins can go from bad to worse, and will realize the value of seeing a specialist. Patients seeking more information on these subjects can find it on the center’s website at http://veinclinicsofhawaii.com/, or by contacting an Oahu varicose vein doctor.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options

Varicose veins and spider veins are quite common afflictions in the United States, affecting up to 30 million people. While women tend to suffer from vein disease more frequently than men, both sexes can be afflicted. Spider veins are usually smaller, web-like veins that might have a tangled appearance, while varicose veins are usually larger, twisted, bluish veins that are raised on the skin.

There are several safe and effective treatment options for varicose veins and spider veins, including the Venefit™ procedure, microphlebectomy, and sclerotherapy. All procedures are minimally invasive, meaning they can be performed on an outpatient basis in the doctor’s office. They all help restore both the health and beauty of the legs with minimal discomfort and minimal downtime.
