Varicose veins are essentially swollen & twisted veins that may be seen in the form of bulging, bluish cords running just beneath the surface of the skin. They are commonly found on your legs and feet, though may be prevalent in other areas as well, including the face and chest.
Varicose veins are a relatively common condition, and for many people they are genetic in origin. Varicose veins are more common in females, although males are also prone to develop them. In the U.S. alone, they affect about 23% of all Americans.
Varicose veins may sometimes cause minor painful, though are mainly harmless and do not possess any symptoms, unless they are left untreated.
Without treatment, varicose veins generally tend to get worse. Those who do not get them treated are more likely to develop:
Also known as Ambulatory Phlebectomy or microphlebectomy, phlebectomy is a minimally invasive treatment option where Dr. Shah uses a needle or scalpel to make micro-incisions to remove varicose veins from the surface of your leg.
Dr. Shah may use a non-invasive form of sclerotherapy, known as Ultrasound Guided Foam Sclerotherapy to treatment small varicose veins.
Depending on your case, Dr. Shah may recommend more than one treatment option for optimal results. This is to be discussed during your FREE consultation with our Los Angeles Vein Specialists.
