ABOUT VEIN CARE CENTER
The services we offer provide treatment for two types of venous diseases, spider veins and varicose veins. Spider and varicose veins are abnormal, dilated blood vessels caused by a weakening in the blood vessel wall. Spider veins are red, purple or blue clusters of small veins that are usually just a cosmetic concern. Larger than spider veins, varicose veins are a blue color and have a tendency to bulge. Risk factors for venous diseases include obesity, pregnancy and prolonged standing.
