4 Reasons Why You Should Call Us for a FREE Vein Consultation

Temperatures here in Florida are almost always ideal for clothing that allows our legs to breathe, but you’re finding ways to cover up thanks to visible leg veins. Whether you have a web of spider veins or your legs have developed bulging varicose veins, you want to get to the bottom of these unwelcome vascular developments.

The good news is that you’ve come to the right place since Soffer Health Institute specializes in vascular services. The even better news is that board-certified cardiologist Dr. Ariel Soffer and our team offer complimentary leg vein consultations. 

In the following, we discuss some of the valuable benefits of seeing us for a quick consultation for your leg veins.

1. Leg veins might signal a larger problem

Both varicose veins and spider veins are common, and spider veins may affect more than half of women, though they can certainly develop in men, too.

In a majority of cases, these veins pose more of a cosmetic concern than a medical one, but there are times when they signal a larger vascular issue, such as chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), which affects more than 25 million American adults.

With CVI, small valves in the veins of your legs — that are designed to close as blood passes through to keep it flowing in the right direction — start to fail. When the valves don’t close properly, blood can pool and engorge the veins in your leg, sending them to the surface in the form of varicose and spider veins.

Making matters more concerning, CVI is progressive, so early diagnosis is important so we can take steps to improve the circulation in your legs and avoid future spider and varicose veins. 

2. Bulging leg veins can be uncomfortable

If your legs are itchy or you’re experiencing leg pain in the form of cramping or restless legs at night, these symptoms may be related to your varicose veins.

3. There are quick, easy solutions for problematic leg veins

It’s important to note that, once a spider or varicose vein develops, it won’t go away without treatment.

So, whether you find your spider or varicose veins to be troublesome in terms of comfort, aesthetics, or both, we offer a wide range of treatment options that can quickly and easily banish these veins from your legs.

4. The vein consultation is free

Lastly, we want to reiterate that we offer this initial vein consultation free of charge. During this consultation, one of our vascular specialists sits down with you to discuss your symptoms and concerns, and we perform a quick physical exam to see what we’re up against. From there, we can recommend next steps.

To get started on scheduling your complimentary vein consultation, please contact one of our offices in Weston or Aventura, Florida.
