For over three decades Illinois Veins Specialists has been a pioneer in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of varicose and spider veins, bringing relief to thousands of vein sufferers like you.
Over 80 million people in the United States are living with vein disease and millions more get diagnosed every year. While some may only see this as a mere cosmetic concern, it’s much more than that. Vein disease can lead to very serious complications and requires immediate attention. When left untreated, it can cause numbness, pain, cramping, and in severe cases, pulmonary embolisms. Many people with vein disease also experience problems sleeping, difficulty exercising, and even walking pain. However, once vein disease is treated, the symptoms will be eradicated, and your quality of life will increase tremendously. Don’t let vein disease keep you from living your best life, contact Illinois Vein Specialists today—a vein doctor Mundelein residents love.
As we mentioned, vein disease is a serious medical diagnosis that worsens as time goes on. Some people go on to develop deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which greatly increases your risk factors for an embolism. DVT happens when a blood clot forms in veins that are far from the superficial layers of skin. It tends to affect legs more frequently but can occur in any vein throughout your body. DVT is often accompanied by pain and swelling, however, not everyone displays symptoms. If you notice any signs of a DVT, or have a sudden shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness, or increasing heartbeat, contact a medical professional immediately. If you have risk factors for DVT, talk to your doctor about preventative measures and testing. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.
Varicose veins are very twisted, enlarged veins that tend to bulge out from the skin and create an unsightly appearance. While many people only see them as a cometic burden, varicose veins should not be overlooked. They can lead to serious complications that affect your everyday life, health, and other medical conditions. Problems occur when blood in the damaged veins clots and leads to dangerous conditions. Varicose veins also greatly dimmish your body’s ability to circulate blood efficiently.
Spider veins are when smaller veins become damaged on the surface of the skin. While many spider veins don’t cause problems, they still can and do happen. Thanks to modern treatment, eliminating spider veins is easy and pain-free. If you’re looking for a Mundelein vein doctor, contact the board-certified doctors at Illinois Vein Specialists.
If you have symptoms of vein disease, or are looking to treat existing vein disease, contact the vein treatment center Mundelein residents prefer—Illinois Vein Specialists. We provide minimally invasive vein treatments for vein disease so you can go home with happy, healthy legs.
By using minimally invasive vein treatments, recovery time is practically non-existent. You can drive yourself to your appointment and walk out of our clinic with vein disease reversed. Our initial consultations are held in comfortable environments so that patients can relax and be at ease from start to finish. We strive ourselves on our patient care and always go above and beyond traditional measures. Illinois Vein Specialists treat our patients like family and have treated over 10,000 cases of vein disease since our grand opening in 2009.
One of the reasons many people avoid varicose vein treatment is due to painful procedures administered in the past. In the past, vein stripping was used. This procedure was very painful and is only effective 50% of the time. It also leads to a long road of recovery and sometimes, a second treatment. Luckily, Illinois Vein Specialists do not treat vein disease using vein stripping techniques.
Our board-certified physicians utilize modern technology to ensure fast, safe, and effective treatments. By using endovenous laser therapy (EVLT) we target the affected area using specific wavelengths that help close veins. Once closed, your body re-route the blood to healthy veins so that circulation is improved, and disease is eliminated. While some people feel slight discomfort, the entire procedure takes less than an hour and only requires a local analgesia. Once EVLT is complete, venous hypertension is immediately reversed and you can walk out the door to continue your day.
We also offer treatment for spider veins using sclerotherapy, which helps close affected veins through the injection of a hardening agent. This leads to a sclerosed vein, which is then reabsorbed into the body. Once reabsorbed, the appearance of spider veins starts to fade away. In certain cases, our physicians may perform a treatment called intense pulsed light (IPL).
