While you may have heard of spider veins and varicose veins in the past, you may not have heard of reticular veins unless you have been diagnosed with them yourself. Reticular veins are quite similar to varicose veins in that they are usually blue or purple-colored and often bulge from the surface of the skin. However, they are usually smaller than varicose veins are because they are the feeder veins that lead off of the main problematic vein. You can most often find these veins on the back of the legs behind the knees, where they can create a great deal of discomfort and embarrassment. When you visit Huntington Women’s Health in Huntington, New York, you can experience several great benefits from reticular vein treatments.
Eliminate Visible Leg Veins
Reticular vein treatments either work on the problematic veins themselves or on the larger veins into which these smaller veins feed. After even a single treatment, these veins may gradually begin fading away as the veins themselves die and the blood heads into healthier veins.
Eliminate Physical Discomfort
When we help you get rid of reticular veins, we can help you eliminate uncomfortable symptoms that often occur the longer visible veins stay on your legs. Many of our patients in New York complain of aching and cramping legs when they first come to visit us. Those who have had reticular veins for years may even have skin complaints, including rashes and skin ulcers. Other common complaints that we can help to clear up include restless legs, difficulty sleeping and leg and ankle swelling.
Find Permanent Solutions
Our reticular vein treatments can provide permanent relief when performed correctly. You may need several laser treatments for complete relief or one to two sclerotherapy treatments. However, once that vein dies and is reabsorbed by the body, it will not reappear in the future.
Once your visible veins are taken care of, you will feel as if you can stop hiding your legs everywhere you go. You will even be able to show them off poolside, at the beach or during the summer wearing your favorite shorts.
While reticular veins may not be quite as serious as varicose veins are, they can still pose many uncomfortable and embarrassing problems that may create discomfort for you both physically and emotionally. With our treatments at Huntington Women’s Health, you can experience permanent relief from these problems. Contact us today to book your appointment at our office in Huntington, New York!
