Common Leg Vein Problems
Dr. Jeffrey A. Hunt, certified in vein treatment by the American Board of Phlebology, and his team of high-quality specialists at the Vein and Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay are well-versed in the diagnosis and treatment options for leg vein problems such as varicose veins and spider veins, as well as a variety of other vein conditions. At the Vein and Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay, Dr. Hunt provides the Tampa and St. Petersburg, Florida area with effective, non-surgical treatment of a number of leg vein problems by taking into consideration a variety of contributing factors, including the following:
- Your overall health, age, and medical history
- The extent of your condition and leg vein concerns
- Your tolerance for procedures and medications
- The prognosis with and without treatment
- Your cosmetic goals, preferences, and opinions
As the body ages, leg veins can begin to malfunction as the valves that direct the blood flow weaken. As a result of the compromised structure and function of the veins, blood can pool inside them, which can ultimately cause them to protrude from the skin. While every patient experiences varying degrees of leg vein conditions and discomfort, the most common concerns are throbbing, swelling, cramping, and heaviness. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to seek medical treatment early on to stop the natural progression of these diseases, reduce symptoms, and avoid serious complications. In addition to addressing the overall medical concerns associated with leg vein problems, Dr. Hunt can also help you achieve the best possible cosmetic results to alleviate the equally important aesthetic effects leg vein problems can have.
