Kihei, Maui, HI. Vein Clinics of Hawaii is releasing a new article in which they use a somewhat light-hearted approach to a serious subject and talk about “the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly” of vein disease. According to these Hawaii vein specialists, articles like this are necessary because although medical advances have made vein disease easy to diagnose and treat, most of the 26 million Americans who get vein disease every year don’t even know they have it.
According to Dr. Randall S. Juleff, medical director of one of the best Maui vein treatment centers, “the ugly side of vein disease is obvious – varicose veins and the toll they take on our appearance. But the real ugliness is below the surface, because they’re also increasing your risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. “The Bad” of vein disease can’t get much worse than a disease called deep vein thrombosis, or DVT, which is so serious that it kills hundreds of thousands of people every year. But fortunately “the Good” of vein disease is that it is now easy to diagnose and treat – without hospitals, without general anesthesia, and without the need to spend time away from work or home either for the treatments themselves, or to recover from them. The good news about vein disease is that you can literally have it treated on your lunch hour.”
These varicose vein treatment specialists in Honolulu and Maui hope that their article reaches a number of people in the general public and helps them to understand what vein disease is and how dangerous it can be, but at the same time how quickly, easily, and painlessly it can be treated.

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.
