Chronic Venous Insufficiency
Your legs have a network of veins. These veins have hundreds of one way valves that help the return of blood back to the heart. Venous reflux disease develops when one or more of these valves fail, causing blood to pool in the legs. The veins dilate causing varicose veins and spider veins to develop. Achy, tired, heavy, painful, and fatigued legs can develop as a result of venous reflux. Leg swelling can occur. Skin itching and burning can occur. The skin can become dry, red, discolored, or an ulcer can form.
But not to worry, VEINatlanta possesses the skill and technology to successfully treat venous disease and restore your legs to a healthy, youthful look and feel.
