Vascular disease is a problem that may sound huge, but it can be easily treatable with noninvasive or minimally invasive treatments in Cincinnati. Most of the time, the area that is most affected by vascular disease is the legs. This can lead to a variety of cosmetic and physical issues that can leave you feeling embarrassed to head out of your house as well as physically uncomfortable. Here you can learn about the symptoms of vascular disease that you should be on the lookout for in Cincinnati.
First, you may be experiencing visible signs that you have vascular disease. Many individuals suffer with spider veins, which are tiny patterns of purple, red or blue veins on the surface of the skin. They appear in a fine, web-like pattern. Although they are small and mainly cause cosmetic issues, they may keep you from wearing some of your favorite clothes or engaging in certain activities for fear that your legs may be seen.
More concerning are varicose veins, which appear as raised, twisted, rope-like veins sticking out from the surface of your skin. They may become larger if you stand for long periods, are overweight, have gone through multiple pregnancies or sit frequently with your legs crossed. While varicose veins produce cosmetic concerns, they can also create physical problems.
Second, you may be able to feel the symptoms of vascular disease. Blood pooling in your legs can lead to aching legs, leg cramps and restless leg syndrome, all of which can make it difficult to stay comfortable during the day or sleep well at night. You may also have itchy skin that appears rash-like.
Third, if left untreated, vascular disease can certainly progress. Prolonged pooling of blood in the extremities can lead to major swelling of the feet and ankles and even to skin sores and ulcers that can be difficult to treat. Thankfully, there is no reason to allow venous issues to progress this far because there are numerous treatments that we offer that can nip the problem in the bud. One of our treatments is sclerotherapy. We also offer radiofrequency ablation. Both treatments cause the vein to gradually fade away over the next few months.
