Visible veins can leaving you feeling self-conscious in public and embarrassed of your skin. They may make you look older and may even keep you from wearing your favorite clothes or attending your favorite events. However, with our specialty treatments for reticular and varicose veins at MD Age Management in Winter Park, you can experience gorgeous, smooth skin once again and will feel proud to show off your legs in your dresses, shorts and swimsuits wherever you go.
Varicose veins are large, ropy veins that often bulge from the surface of the skin. They appear twisted and are usually blue or purple. Reticular veins are similar to this but are smaller and are sometimes called feeder veins because they come off of the varicose veins. Reticular veins typically occur on the back of the leg behind the knee and may not rise as highly from the skin as varicose veins do. Varicose veins most often occur on the leg as well although they can pop up nearly anywhere in this area.
Both varicose and reticular veins can pose concerning problems for those who suffer from them. Not only are they ugly and embarrassing, but also they can produce physical issues that may significantly decrease your quality of life. For example, the longer that varicose veins are present on your legs, the higher your chance of discomfort from them is. These veins often create achy feelings or cramps in the leg, which can ruin your sleep quality. They can eventually cause swelling of the feet and ankles, which can lead to itchy skin and skin ulcers if left untreated.
As you can see, it is important to treat reticular and varicose veins as soon as possible, and we offer wonderful treatment options at MD Age Management. Sclerotherapy is one of the best and most popular treatments for all types of problematic veins that are smaller than three millimeters in diameter. For larger veins, a more invasive option may be needed. Besides sclerotherapy, we also offer intense pulse light laser therapy for very small veins that appear to be red on the surface of the skin rather than blue.
