Am I A Candidate for Vein Treatment?
To determine if you would benefit from vein treatment, please consider the following. Have you previously been diagnosed with varicose veins, venous reflux or venous insufficiency? Do you see varicose or spider veins on your legs? Has anyone in your family been diagnosed with vein disease? Do your legs feel achy after prolonged periods of sitting or standing? Have you tried other methods of treatment with little or no symptom relief or do symptoms reoccur? Methods of treatment can include laser treatments, sclerotherapy, vein stripping, compression stockings, or anti-inflammatory medications.
If you have answered yes to one or more of these questions you may be a candidate for treatment. In addition, Dr. Reynolds may be able to treat your veins if you experience any of the following symptoms.
- Leg pain, aching or cramping
- Burning or itching of your skin
- Leg or ankle swelling
- A “heavy” feeling in your legs
- Skin discoloration or texture changes
- Restless legs
- Open wounds or sores
