Venous diseases cause a lot of discomfort in the leg preventing you from leading the life you deserve. Learn more about vein disorders and how you can prevent or treat them.

There are two main types of venous diseases that affect the veins namely spider veins and varicose veins.

Varicose veins

Varicose veins disease is a condition that causes a lot of discomfort in the leg preventing you from leading the life you deserve. The swelling, itchiness, and heaviness in the leg can stop you from enjoying most things in life.  Varicose veins often protrude through the skin and are visible in the legs.

Varicose veins are caused by venous insufficiency- a condition in which a faulty valve causes blood to pool in the vein leading to the protrusion. If untreated, varicose veins symptoms can increase and the unsightly appearance to worsen.

People with varicose veins are concerned that the vein will bleed. If the vein begins to bleed, hold continuous pressure for at least 10 minutes and if the bleeding fails to stop, see El Paso vein doctor right away.

Spider veins

Spider veins are smaller dilated or stretched out blood vessels that form a branching pattern on the thigh and lower leg.  Spider veins are progressive and can increase in number and visibility if they remain untreated.

Spider veins cause discomfort as well as embarrassment and self-consciousness. Treating spider veins is important not only because it improves the appearance but it helps to stop the progression of the venous disease.

Contrary to popular belief that treating spider veins is for cosmetic reasons, we now know that leaving spider veins untreated can lead to larger health problems like Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), leg venous ulcers and more. Spider veins are also progressive and can increase in number and visibility if they remain untreated.
