Vein doctors, also known as Phlebologists, are Board-Certified in the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of varicose veins and other vascular disorders. At Central Florida Vein & Vascular Center, our staff physicians work with each patient to provide a long-term, healthy solution using minimally invasive techniques. If you think that you may be suffering from varicose veins, spider veins, or another vascular problem, read through the following guide to see if it may be time to visit a vein doctor.
You Are Experiencing Bothersome Symptoms
Many of the symptoms of varicose veins, even when mild, can cause much frustration during the activities of daily life. If you have large, dilated veins that rise above the level of the skin, you may experience throbbing, cramping, or heaviness in the legs, as well as discolored skin around the affected vein. Varicose veins may also become painful and itchy. When left untreated, this condition may progress and cause dermatitis, ulcerations, or even facilitate the development of a blood clot.
You Are Uncomfortable with Your Appearance
Many men and women who suffer from spider veins or varicose veins are unhappy with the way that these abnormalities look on their skin. Spider veins, for example, can often develop on the face as well as the lower extremities, affecting a person’s even, youthful skin tone. Varicose veins can change the appearance of the legs in addition to causing irritating symptoms.
Fortunately, there are many advanced, minimally invasive procedures available to treat varicose and spider veins. These therapies can help to resolve symptoms, improve appearance, and prevent complications. If you are interested in finding expert treatment for your spider or varicose veins, consider scheduling a consultation with one of the experienced physicians at Central Florida Vein & Vascular Center by calling (407) 293-5944. Our healthcare team is dedicated to providing the most advanced medical care possible in a comfortable and patient-centered environment.
