Varicose and Spider Veins are a Serious Problem!

According to the American College of Phlebology, more than 80 million adult Americans of both sexes and all races suffer from varicose or spider veins. Many people have both. That’s a major concern, not only to our nation, but especially to the affected individuals and their families.

The Problems And Dangers Of Leg Vein Disease

  1. Varicose and venous insufficiency problems increase the long-term risks of blood clot, phlebitis, and pulmonary embolism. These can be life-threatening concerns.
  2. Varicose and spider veins can cause substantial pain, swelling, and other significant discomfort.
  3. Leg vein problems can severely hamper your lifestyle and even cause you to miss time at work. It's estimated that they are responsible for more than 4.6 million lost work days each year in the United States alone.
  4. Vein disease can develop into wounds, especially in the lower legs, that can be extremely debilitating and stubborn to treat.
  5. Vein disease can cause rashes, discoloring of skin, and severe scarring of skin and soft tissue.
  6. Unsightly vein disease can seriously damage self-esteem and impair quality of life.
