What is Venous Disease?

Vein diseases occur when damage affects your veins, disrupting the normal blood flow back to your heart. This disruption can lead to blood pooling or even flowing backward, resulting in pain, swelling, and other discomforts. A common condition associated with vein diseases is Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI), which can stem from various factors like injury, blood clots, underlying health issues, or surgical procedures. Notably, CVI ranks among the most prevalent disorders related to blood accumulation.

Varicose Vein Treatment

For optimal vein care, it’s crucial to understand the function and potential malfunctioning of your veins. Healthy veins ideally have a closed valve, ensuring blood flow only travels in one direction, back toward your heart.

However, issues arise when varicose veins come into play, allowing blood flow in both directions. This irregular circulation can lead to noticeable swelling, a symptom of chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). The symptoms of this condition can escalate from leg pain, restless legs, and uncomfortable burning and itching sensations to skin discoloration, and in severe cases, even open sores or ulcers on your lower legs.

However, varicose veins don’t mean you have to live with these symptoms. Modern vein treatment options offer a variety of preventative measures and medical solutions to minimize or even eliminate these uncomfortable signs of CVI.

Your vein health is crucial, and understanding your options is the first step. Consult with the team at Summit Skin & Vein Care to explore the right vein care solutions for you.

Preventative Vein Treatments

If you only have a minor case or relatively few flare-ups or symptoms of CVI, you may be able to treat your varicose veins yourself using some of these preventative measures:

  • Wear compression stockings (ask your doctor about prescription-strength stockings)
  • Follow a healthy diet, get regular exercise, and watch your weight
  • Wear loose-fitting clothing
  • Elevate your legs when lying down
  • Avoid sitting or standing for long periods of time, adjusting your position frequently
  • Try alternative medicine in the form of herbal supplements or the herb in dried form (but be sure to first discuss these with your doctor to ensure they don’t interfere with any current prescription medications):
    • Horse chestnut
    • Butcher’s broom
    • Grape (leaves, sap, seed, and fruit)
    • Sweet clover

Medical Treatments for Varicose Veins

Summit Skin & Vein Care offers several non-surgical and surgical options for varicose vein treatment through the phlebologists at our clinic, if your condition is causing severe discomfort:

Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) Treatment 

Endovenous Laser Ablation Treatment is an alternative to traditional surgical vein treatment methods. With this procedure, a small fiber emits light waves that eliminate varicose veins. Using laser fiber technology and laser light, our venous disease specialists safely seal the vein.

As the light gently heats the vein, the vein will seal and blood will re-route and circulate through healthier veins. You can undergo this short but effective varicose vein treatment from the comfort of our Lee’s Summit office and can return to normal activities the very next day. This procedure is 95-98% effective, and you’ll likely leave our vein clinic satisfied with the results.


Sclerotherapy, also referred to as “ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy,” is another less invasive procedure that is often preferable to surgery. In this procedure, we seal under-the-surface veins that would otherwise require surgery.

This treatment method involves using a tiny needle to inject medication into varicose and spider veins, causing them to collapse. As the veins reabsorb into the body, they are no longer visible, and symptoms are relieved.

Spider Vein Treatment

Spider veins, while often viewed as a mere cosmetic nuisance, can actually signify a deeper vein health issue and may even lead to leg discomfort. These web-like visible veins are a result of damaged veins limiting proper blood circulation. While not as prominent as varicose veins, their effect can be equally distressing.

At Summit Skin & Vein Care, we specialize in comprehensive vein care including a highly effective vein treatment for spider veins. Our treatment specifically targets spider veins that are intricately linked with reticular veins, a condition that may accentuate the visibility of spider veins. Reach out to our dedicated team today to embark on your journey towards healthier veins.

Laser Vein Therapy – Nd:YAG™

Laser Therapy is a recommended reticular vein and spider vein treatment for deeper, blue, hard-to-reach veins. With the use of precise energy and light wavelength, spider veins and reticular “feeder veins” can be dissolved and reabsorbed by the body. The treatment is safe and can eliminate the appearance and symptoms of damaged veins. This can be an effective option for those who have found other vein treatments to be ineffective.
