Why Early Detection Of Vein Disease Is Important

Vein Disease signsVein disease is a common condition affecting millions worldwide, especially as they age. Vein disease is caused by weak or damaged valves in the veins that prevent blood from flowing properly. This can lead to the pooling of blood, causing the veins to enlarge and become twisted or bulging. The most common types of vein disease are varicose veins and spider veins, which can cause uncomfortable symptoms and be unsightly. Early detection and treatment of vein disease are essential to maintaining good vein health and preventing more serious complications

At Summit Skin and Vein Care, we understand the importance of identifying and treating vein disease as early as possible. If left untreated, vein disease does not go away, and pain can increase while your overall health declines. In addition, as the symptoms of chronic vein disease worsen, it can become harder to perform everyday activities and your quality of life can deteriorate.

Venous Disease Symptoms To Look For

The symptoms of vein disease can vary depending on the severity of the condition, but some of the most common symptoms include:

  • Aching, heavy, or tired legs
  • Swelling in the legs or ankles
  • Itching or burning
  • Skin discoloration
  • Cramping
  • Restless legs
  • Open wounds
  • Varicose veins or spider veins that are visible on the surface of the skin
  • Varicose veins can occur within the legs and may not be visible on the skin surface. These unseen veins are often accompanied by the same symptoms as surface veins.

If you experience any of these symptoms, it is essential to seek medical attention as soon as possible. Contact Summit Skin and Vein Care and allow our experts to conduct a FREE screening. Early detection and treatment can help prevent more serious complications from developing and improve your overall quality of life. Most insurances, including Medicare, will cover medically necessary vein treatments.

Treatment Options For Vein Disease

At Summit Skin and Vein Care, we offer a range of treatments to resolve venous disease, such as varicose veins and spider veins. Our experienced team of physicians and medical professionals use the latest techniques and technologies to provide safe and effective treatment options for our patients.


One of the most common treatments for vein disease is sclerotherapy, which involves injecting a solution into the affected veins to shrink them. Once the weakened veins collapse, they are absorbed by the body and the healthier veins take their place in the circulatory system. This procedure can be guided through ultrasound or a Veinlite. At Summit Skin and Vein Care, we offer both liquid sclerotherapy and ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy techniques. This treatment is minimally invasive and has little to no downtime, allowing you to return to your normal activities quickly.

Endovenous Laser Ablation

Another treatment option is Endovenous Laser Therapy, which uses a laser to close off the affected vein. Endovenous Ablation (EVLA) is a procedure that treats varicose veins with minimal invasiveness. This method uses laser energy to heat and eliminate the affected vein, which is then absorbed by the body. Summit Skin and Vein Care uses EVLA as an efficient treatment for individuals who are uncomfortable with the unsightly appearance of varicose veins, and to provide relief for common symptoms like pain, heaviness, and fatigue. The procedure is generally conducted on an outpatient basis, and most patients can resume their daily routine within a few days.
