Some common questions we receive regarding varicose veins are:
Blood moves towards the heart by valves in the blood vessel, which controls the one-way flow. Sitting or standing for long periods can cause blood to pool in the leg veins, increasing the pressure within the veins. As a result, the veins can stretch from the increased pressure. This may weaken the walls of the veins and damage the valves, making it harder to control the flow and thus increasing pressure. This pressure causes swelling and even twisting of the veins. At that point, varicose veins are mainly a cosmetic issue. However, it is important to know when these vein problems can have more serious side effects. Long-term mild swelling as a result of severe varicose veins can eventually produce serious skin and tissue problems such as ulcers and non-healing sores. Blood clots associated with deep vein thrombosis can be a problem as well. Varicose veins have the potential to become dangerous if they are not treated properly.
The Princeton Vascular Center addresses all types of vein conditions, including cosmetic spider veins, varicose veins, and, when indicated, deep venous disease. We utilize the latest technological advances to customize a treatment plan for each patient’s needs. At the Princeton Vascular Center, you can be certain that you are in the hands of the best, board-certified vascular specialists and doctors in New Jersey who have received formal residency training in vascular procedures.
Spider veins and varicose veins by themselves are quite harmless. However, if you are experiencing painful symptoms or desire to have the veins removed for aesthetic purposes, then you should schedule a consultation with the best vein doctors serving Princeton and Mt. Laurel, NJ. Varicose veins symptoms may often resemble other medical conditions or problems. Thus, it is important to speak to a board-certified vascular doctor who has undergone extensive medical training and is not just a cosmetic specialist.
It’s important to have a treatment tailored to your specific condition. Varicose veins and spider veins do not fit just one pattern. Conservative measures such as compression stockings and exercise continue to be important tools in treatment. For individuals with continued symptoms or more advanced disease, there are no safe and effective tools to treat venous insufficiency without surgery.
Our vein treatment centers aim to increase accessibility to board-certified vascular surgeons and vein specialists to develop the best spider and varicose vein treatment for you.
If your varicose veins are itchy or causing leg pain, it’s important to get them taken care of before these symptoms get worse.
The primary tools for diagnosis of venous reflux are ultrasounds. This is often done during your initial consultation visit and within the office. It is a simple and safe diagnostic method with high accuracy and enables us to immediate review results together. We can then help you start planning your treatments. In select cases, CT scans, MRIs and angiograms can be considered depending on your vein condition.
A consultation with the experienced vein specialists at Princeton Vascular Center will provide insights to help you decide on the best vein treatment plan.

These options may be recommended by a vein doctor based on the severity of your pain, whether you have skin problems, or whether there are blood clots present. Some people simply choose treatment because of their aesthetic.
