What is Venous Disease?

Venous diseases occur when veins are damaged, leading to irregular blood flow instead of the normal pathways that carry blood back to your heart. This allows for blood to pool or even flow backward and cause pain, swelling, and other discomforts. You may have heard of the associated condition Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI), which can develop due to injury, blood clots, health conditions, or surgery. CVI is one of the most common venous disorders that can create blood pooling.

Varicose Vein Treatment

Healthy veins have a closed valve, so blood flow only occurs in one direction back toward the heart. Varicose veins, however, allow for blood to flow in both directions. The irregular blood flow causes visible swelling, which can ultimately lead to leg pain, restless legs, burning and itching sensations, discoloration of the skin, and even open sores or ulcers on the lower legs.

There are a variety of preventative measures and medical treatments that can help minimize or even eliminate symptoms of CVI. Consult with your doctor to see which solutions are right for you, but you can find more information about various treatment options, below.

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 Vericose 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 may appear to be a minor cosmetic issue, but they could be an indication of a more significant health problem and cause discomfort in the legs. These veins are named for their spider-like appearance and are caused by damaged veins that restrict blood flow. Despite being smaller than varicose veins, they can be just as frustrating.

To remedy spider veins, we employ sclerotherapy, a common procedure used for varicose veins, as well as Laser Vein Therapy – Nd:YAG™. This treatment is particularly effective for spider veins that are closely associated with reticular veins, which can exacerbate the appearance of spider veins. It is critical to acknowledge the potential health issues linked with spider veins and seek treatment to improve both appearance and symptoms.

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.
