Varicose, Spider Vein Treatment & Vein Removal

About

Biography
When to seek treatment for varicose and spider veins:


If you suffer from varicose and spider veins, you are not alone; it is estimated that nearly one in four people in this country experience some form of leg vein disorder during their lifetime. Understanding the roles of exercise, diet, and hormones can minimize your risk and control progression; but if varicose veins are already a problem, modern techniques, including spider vein removal have made treatment of this common condition more effective and safer than ever before.


Symptoms of varicose veins and other vein diseases come in many forms and should be taken seriously. Symptoms such as bulging veins, blue veins and enlarged veins can be indicative of an underlying condition (venous reflux), which can progressively get worse over time if not treated.


If the varicose vein has become swollen, red, or very tender or warm to the touch you should seek the attention of the doctor. Sores and rashes on the leg and near the ankle are also strong indications of circulation problems and you should consult with an experienced physician. If you are experiencing such symptoms call toll free at 1.888.ZIP.VEIN today for an appointment.


Most vein symptoms are worse at the end of the day, in hot weather and after prolonged periods of standing or sitting. Many women experience worse vein symptoms around the time of their menstrual period. Leg elevation, aerobic activity and compression stockings can help to alleviate symptoms. Click for more information on exercises, dietary changes, and alternative conservative therapies.


If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms in your legs, you may want to consider being evaluated by a vein specialist who can differentiate vein disease from mere cosmetic concerns:


* Swelling
* Bulging veins and enlarged veins
* Red or blue veins close to the surface of the skin
* Burning or throbbing veins
* Bleeding
* Skin discoloration
* Leg pain
* Tired, heavy, aching feeling
* Itching
* Numbness


Swelling :


Swelling or edema may occur in the lower part of the leg, usually around the ankle or in the feet. This is often more pronounced after longer periods of standing or sitting. Swelling often indicates vein problems occurring below the surface of the skin. An evaluation by a vein specialist should be sought. Unexplained pain or swelling in a leg can be indicative of blood clots. Varicose veins alone usually do not cause swelling of the legs.


Bulging Veins and Enlarged Veins:


Bulging veins that are swollen and raised above the skin surface (generally called "varicose veins") can occur anywhere on the leg, but are most often found on the inner thigh and/or the inner lower leg or calf. These may often be described as "ropey" or cord-like in appearance. Varicose veins are often accompanied with additional symptoms such as achy, heavy feeling legs; burning, throbbing and muscle cramping.

DON'T GO

After noticing a tiny varicose vein on the corner of my right eye(about half an inch),I decided to contact Dr Yassouf for a consultation.
The appointment was at noon ,unfortunately he didn't show up until 12 30 pm (no apologies )
After taking a look at it ,he told me he was able to help me and so by using a laser treatment called Varilite.He told me as well that I will need two to three treatments to see result.
His fees are outrageous (500$ the first session,350$ after that )Don't even ask for a cash discount,they will laugh at you...
Anyway,after paying the 500 i got the first procedure done
One month later the vein is still apparent but now i have a scar surrounding it: after calling his office they told me I should wait another month..
Now it's been three months and the vein is still here and the scar is not going anywhere,after calling the office again and being asked ""what's the Problem?''they told now that I should wait for six months!!
Back to his office two weeks ago.I was welcome with the same kind of arrogance and nervousness but this time they made me sign this blank piece of paper and I have to tell you I got very confused and suspicious ...Left the office and never came back !
I am not happy with the result....
