Welcome to Rejuveination. We are the vein restoration group opening a comprehensive vein center in the Kenwood area.
We are a locally owned and locally operated entity committed to offering the latest technology in the treatment of chronic venous insufficiency, varicose or “ropy” veins and spider veins.
Chronic venous insufficiency is a serious condition that often manifests as varicose and spider veins. This condition affects 190 million people globally with more than 30 million in the U.S.A., including more than 200,000 individuals in the Greater Cincinnati area. Despite its prevalence, only about 10% of men and women affected seek treatment.
Many people with varicose veins believe their condition to be a cosmetic issue. However, if left untreated, varicose veins can progress to chronic venous insufficiency that can cause leg pain, swelling, restlessness, skin discoloration, and ulcers.
Chronic insufficiency is a progressive medical condition in which the valves that allow blood to be carried from the legs to the heart no longer function, causing the blood to pool in the legs and veins to swell. This impaired blood flow (or reflux) causes veins to expand, lose form, and become either varicose veins and/or spiders under the skin.
To identify whether reflux is occurring, we perform a diagnostic ultrasound. Once there is a diagnosis of reflux, the involved veins are treated with ablation, meaning under local anesthesia, a catheter is inserted into the vein, and the vein is closed. This eliminates the pooling of the blood and improves symptoms significantly. Once the source of the problem is eliminated, the varicose vein and spiders are treated with secondary procedures to improve the appearance of the legs.
We look forward to the privilege of taking care of your needs with expertise and professionalism, and we look forward to seeing you soon at our vein center!
