Symptoms of venous insufficiency range from feelings of heaviness, swelling, cramping and/or pain in one or both legs. Some of our patients experience itchiness and darkening of the skin. Venous insufficiency can lead to leg or ankle ulcerations, which can be difficult to heal and if not treated can lead to serious complications.

Enlarged, twisted, bulging veins close to the surface of the skin are called varicose veins and are a milder form of venous disease. Patients with varicose veins report feeling burning, aching, itching, heaviness and pain to the affected leg(s).

At The Vein Center of North Florida, we provide our patients with radio-frequency or Venaseal ablations, phlebectomies and/or sclerotherapy for venous insufficiency treatment.

If you or someone you know are experiencing symptoms of venous insufficiency, please call our office and speak with one of our highly qualified vein consultants to schedule your vein consultation today!
