Symptoms and risk factors of venous disease

Venous disease is a condition that affects the valves that control the direction of your blood flow in your veins. When they aren't functioning correctly, blood can collect in your veins. That can cause pain, swelling, and skin issues in your leg. Risk factors for venous disease comprise age, obesity, family history, smoking, and pregnancy.

Varicose and spider veins may be an aesthetic nuisance for some people, but for others, they can cause pain, fatigue, hyperpigmentation, and eventually lead to break down in the skin. Treating varicose veins can improve your legs' look and feel and reduce the risk of complications. If you have varicose veins, swelling around the ankles, or skin color changes in the legs, you should reach out to our office.

Finding the right treatment for your condition

Dr. Lloyd will evaluate your condition during your initial consultation and determine the best approach to treating your venous disease. She may recommend sclerotherapy, laser therapy, endovenous chemical ablation, or endovenous laser ablation to improve the look and feel of your legs. In some cases, she may advise a combination approach to get you the best results as soon as possible. All these treatments can be completed in less than an hour, and you may need anywhere from one to multiple treatments before the problem resolves. Dr. Lloyd will discuss how you can care for your legs in the time immediately after your treatment during your consultation and continue to work with you until your condition improves.

Lifestyle changes such as weight loss, exercise, and smoking cessation can reduce your risk for recurrent varicose veins. Dr. Lloyd may recommend diet changes or help you improve your posture while you're sitting or standing to improve your vein health and functioning.
