If you have never had varicose or spider veins, it is very difficult for you to understand how hard it is to deal with the problem. When you have problematic veins, it can make you feel extremely self-conscious. It may make you feel so embarrassed that you will keep your legs covered all the time. Even if you are out on the lake with friends, you will wear pants instead of shorts. And there is, of course, the discomfort that comes from dealing with varicose or spider veins.

Individuals with this condition have achy or itchy legs all of the time. And even though there are things that you can do to help you find temporary relief, like wear compression stockings, this is not a long-term solution to the problem. Most individuals get to a point where they need to find a vein specialist in order to help them come up with a treatment plan for their varicose veins.

The importance of finding a vein specialist for venous treatments cannot be overstated. You want to find an individual who will be able to help you deal with the problem you are having. Just think about what you would do if you were having a heart problem. You would not just go to your general practitioner. You would go to a heart specialist. This same idea applies when it comes to dealing with any kind of problems with your veins.

At The Vein Center, our vein specialist is going to be able to examine your health and your veins, and then come up with a solution that will help you get long-term relief. Our vein specialist has the proper training, skills, knowledge and experience in order to help you find the most effective solution for the problem you are experiencing.

One of the benefits of working with a vein specialist when dealing with varicose or spider veins or any vein problem is that a vein specialist is going to be up to date on the latest innovations in their particular field. This means that they are going to be able to find a therapy or a treatment that is most effective for your problem. And one of the greatest benefits is that as technology continues to advance, treatments are becoming less invasive.

Our vein specialist has a variety of treatment options available in order to help you deal with your vein problems. Some of the options that he may use could include sclerotherapy or Venefit™ targeted endovenous therapy.

No vein problem can be effectively treated unless the vein specialist is able to pinpoint the source of your problem. This is going to require an examination and tests. Our vein specialist is going to be able to use ultrasound technology and a variety of other tests and tools in order to determine the reason why you are experiencing your venous issues. He will then recommend a treatment that is safe and will give you relief as soon as possible.

Our skilled vein specialist at The Vein Center in Mount Pleasant is in the best position to help you deal with all problems related to your veins. Contact our office today to schedule your appointment with Dr. Wieters.
