FAQ’s

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT ARE VARICOSE VEINS?
Varicose veins are enlarged, ropy veins, usually dark purple or blue in color, and most commonly appearing in the legs and feet. They gradually develop valves in the vein weaken from age or pregnancy, and blood that should be moving toward the heart flows backward and pools in the vein. For some people, varicose veins are a cosmetic concern—while for others, they may cause pain, discomfort, throbbing or itching, and can indicate the risk of other vascular problems.
HOW ARE VARICOSE VEINS TREATED AND IS IT PAINFUL?
Treatment for varicose veins can involve some basic self-care practices, as well as minimally invasive therapies to collapse or remove the problematic vein and restore healthy blood flow. Providers at Pinnacle Vein and Vascular Center provide careful pain management, and patients are often able to resume normal activities the same day or within several days, depending on the treatment.
WHAT IS VENOUS DISEASE?
Venuous disease, also known as venous insufficiency, is a condition in which the valves in the vein weaken, and allow blood that should be moving toward the heart to flow backward and pool in the vein, often in the legs or feet.
WHAT ARE SPIDER VEINS?
Spider veins are a common and less severe version of varicose veins—usually smaller and closer to the surface of the skin.
WHAT CAUSES SPIDER VEINS?

Spider veins—a common and less severe version of varicose veins—can be caused:

  • When vein valves malfunction and blood pools in the vein
  • By hormonal changes
  • By sun exposure
  • By pregnancy
