At Vein Care Center of Arizona we believe maintaining healthy veins leads to a healthy life. The most important function of veins in our body is to carry blood back to the heart. When the valves in our veins open as our muscles contract, blood moves through our veins and back to our heart. When our muscles relax, the valves close, keeping the blood flowing in one direction. If these valves inside of your veins become defective as a result of venous disease, the valves may not close completely, and may allow blood to leak backward or flow in both directions.
At our practice, your vein health is our primary concern. Vein problems are not always visible; diagnostic testing is key to determining the cause and severity of your issue. As you begin to think about your vein problems, we encourage you to contact our practice to schedule a comprehensive vein consultation.
Venous disease, which affects millions of Americans, refers to conditions related to or caused by veins that become diseased or abnormal. If left untreated, signs and symptoms can worsen over time and cause further health complications.
Varicose Veins may affect men and women off all ages. Risk factors for the development of varicose veins include standing for many hours at a time, multiple pregnancies, and a family history of varicose veins. These dilated veins can be painful, cause leg swelling, and lead to skin discoloration. In severe cases, skin ulceration and open wounds may develop.
Spider Veins, or telangiectasias, are small dilated veins visible on the skin surface that may be red or dark blue in appearance and are generally of cosmetic concern. These veins can be treated with an FDA approved solution that causes them to fade away. Insurance generally does not cover this procedure. Please inquire for rates
