Causes for Bulging Veins

Causes for Bulging Veins

Causes of bulging veins can be varicose veins that are blue or dark purple and appear near to the surface of your skin. Bulges often form on the legs and feet but can occur anywhere. You may experience bulging varicose veins after you have been standing or sitting for long periods. Varicose veins treatment in Utah will help get rid of these types of bulging veins.

Venous insufficiency can cause protruding veins. Inside your veins is a series of valves that prevent blood from flowing backward. If these valves are not working correctly and your veins have weakened, blood will pool inside the vein. The result is a visible bulging vein.

Pregnancy is a risk factor for swollen veins. When you are pregnant pressure on the veins increases and makes it hard for blood to flow back to the heart. The total volume of blood in your body is more significant during pregnancy, and this leads to bulging varicose veins.

Vein walls have muscles that help keep the blood flowing back to the heart. As you age, the walls of your veins grow weaker, and blood pools in one place. This pooling blood causes distended veins.
Blood clots that form deep inside veins are called thrombophlebitis. This type of blood clot usually happens in your leg, but it can also develop in your arm or neck veins. Thrombophlebitis affects deep veins, and you are at risk for a pulmonary embolism if you have a blood clot deep inside a vein.

• Sclerotherapy is a procedure that will help with bulging veins. Dr. Ryan Jones of Utah injects your veins with a special solution. This solution helps the veins to form scar tissue and close. Sclerotherapy is not harmful to your legs since the blood flow reroutes to nearby healthy veins.

• Vein Stripping. During this type of surgery, Dr. Ryan Jones of Utah removes the varicose veins via several small incisions in your skin. Blood flow will not be affected since the blood is directed to nearby healthy veins. Varicose vein therapy in Utah is an effective procedure that will leave you with healthy looking legs.

• Ambulatory phlebectomy is almost like vein stripping. Varicose vein treatment in Utah is done by a doctor making small punctures in your skin and removing the varicose vein through these holes. Ambulatory phlebectomy is done in an outpatient setting.

Bulging veins may be a cosmetic problem, or medical conditions can cause protruding veins. Watch for symptoms of shortness of breath, chest pains and ulcers near your veins. These symptoms could be signs of serious health problems. Contact Dr. Ryan Jones in Utah if you experience bulging veins in combination with these symptoms, or if you are anxious to have bulging veins reduced.

Spider Veins Treatment

Spider Veins Treatment

Spider veins are thin red lines or web-like networks of blood vessels that appear on your legs, thighs, and feet. Spider veins are generally harmless, but they can sometimes cause aching, pain or a burning sensation when you’ve been standing for long periods.

 

Causes of spider veins can be attributed to many factors including heredity, occupations or activities that require sitting or standing for a long time. Pregnancy, hormonal shifts or weight fluctuations can also cause spider veins.

 

If you are bothered by the appearance of spider veins, you are probably a good candidate to have these veins removed. You do need to have a positive outlook and realistic goals for your spider vein treatment and be committed to following the best course of treatment.

 

Unfortunately, most insurance plans will not cover spider vein treatment or any related compilations. Check out your insurance policy, however, to make sure. You might find a clause in your policy allowing you so many treatments.

 

When you go for your consultation make sure you list any problems you have had in the area to be treated, any surgical procedures that have been performed near the area in question, give a list of current medications, vitamins, alcohol, tobacco or drug use, and any medical conditions.

 

Your surgeon will also evaluate your general health, examine your veins, discuss the outcome of spider vein treatment, and recommend a course of treatment.

 

Make sure you understand the risks involved. Risks can include swelling and bruising, change in skin sensation, infections, ulceration, scarring or persistent pain. Most side effects are unusual – spider vein treatment is generally safe and will leave your legs looking gorgeous.

 

Procedures used in spider vein therapy are:

 

  • Sclerotherapy or a procedure where your doctor inject the veins with a solution that scars and closes the veins. This procedure causes the blood to reroute through healthier veins. It may take a few weeks, but this spider vein treatment will cause your unsightly spider veins to fade. Sclerotherapy can be done in Dr. Ryan Jones, Utah, Vein Envy office. Once you have had the procedure done, you may experience side effects of itching, swelling, and skin color changes in the treated area. These side effects fade over time.

 

  • Laser surgery sends an intense burst of light into the vein. It causes the vein to fade and disappear slowly. No needles or incisions are used. Laser surgery is less effective than sclerotherapy if you have unsightly veins that are larger than normal spider veins. With laser surgery, you may experience side effects of redness, itching, swelling, bruising and permanent skin tone changes on the areas that have undergone spider veins treatment. Again, side effects may not happen to you if you follow your surgeons instructions for healing.

 

Note that spider vein treatment is effective, and blood vessels fade over time, but veins may not disappear completely. You need to follow instructions during recovery, and your doctor may suggest support hose to help you heal. Treated sites can appear bruised, and there may be some cramping in your legs for a day or two. This discomfort is temporary and doesn’t require any special medication. Alert!  Be aware that new spider veins can develop later in the same area you just had treated.
