The goal of our open house is to help you learn more about your vein and leg health. If you have experienced various symptoms related to vein disease, come in for a free vein screening from our professionals. Some symptoms of vein disease include:

  • Tired, heavy or restless legs
  • Aching, burning, or cramping sensation
  • Swelling
  • Itching
  • Sores or ulcers on lower leg(s)
  • Discoloration of the skin at ankle(s) & leg(s)

Why get a free vein screening?

If you have experienced any of the above symptoms, or have noticed the appearance of spider or varicose veins on your legs, we recommend getting a vein screening to learn more about your vein health. There are six stages of vein disease. If left untreated, your vein problems could progress to stages five or six.

Stage 1 – Spider Veins. Spider veins are small thin blood vessels close to the surface of the skin and typically have a dark, spindly appearance. Spider veins are more common in women than in men.

Stage 2 – Varicose Veins. Varicose veins have a protruding, rope-like appearance. About 75% of people with varicose veins have symptoms bad enough to interfere with their daily lives. Common symptoms include burning, numbness, itchiness, aching, and swelling in the legs.

Stage 3 – Edema. Swelling of the legs, known as edema, occurs as vein diseases progress without treatment. Backflow of the veins prevents the body from absorbing fluid, which leads to this uncomfortable swelling.

Stage 4 – Skin Discoloration. Venous congestion increases as vein disease progresses. This leads to discoloration in the skin to a reddish-brown or white color.

Stage 5 – Skin Changes with Healed Ulceration. An ulceration often develops with vein disease. With stage 5, an ulceration is not too difficult to treat, but will require treatment to provide relief from uncomfortable symptoms.

Stage 6 – Skin Changes with Active Ulceration. Venous ulcers occur in this stage because of malfunctioning venous valves. Venous ulcers can become chronic, painful problems if you do not get treatment. Symptoms at this point will only continue to worsen.

We want to help you achieve better vein health. Join us for snacks, gifts, & information about varicose veins. E-mail your RSVP to Christy at m31288@att.net by Friday, September 25th

 

*Free Vein Screenings are always available Monday through Friday from 7:45 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.

Comments

  1. I think it is very convenient to have a free vein screening. I think it would help to go in if you think you have varicose veins and not have to pay . I think a lot of places do this because they can charge more for the surgery. This would be nice just because then they don’t have to worry about people not getting them taken care of.
