  1. What Happens If Your Varicose Veins Go Untreated? Varicose Veins are a common vein illness that many Americans experience in life. From causes, such as obesity, poor blood pressure, smoking, and more, there are countless factors that play a role in creating varicose veins. Their unsightly appearance through the skin and chronic pain are side effects known all too well. But what happens to your body if your varicose veins go untreated? Our vein specialists at USA Vein Clinics, the largest and most awarded vein specialist clinic in the country, offer a variety of varicose treatment options for those suffering from this vein illness. Lifestyle changes, medication, and non-surgical procedures may be prescribed to our patients at any one of our Varicose Vein Treatment Centers. However, our treatment options not only focused on correcting varicose veins, but preventing related health effects from occurring as well. Here are a few risk factors that you might face if you do not proactively treat your varicose veins. 1- Venous Leg Ulcers. Varicose veins are the result of inadequate blood flow throughout your body. Whether in the legs, arms, or ankles, varicose veins allow blood to pool and collect in parts of your body, damaging the surrounding tissue. Over time, the skin will deteriorate and a chronic wound, also known as a venous leg ulcer, will appear. Depending on the severity of your varicose veins, leg ulcers can require months to properly heal, leaving your body vulnerable to bacterial infections and diseases. 2- Hyperpigmentation. Like venous leg ulcers, hyperpigmentation results from poor blood flow in and around the legs, ankles, and arms. Hyperpigmentation is characterized by blood collecting in surrounding tissue and causing increased pressure in and around the area where varicose veins can be found. This buildup of blood can cause the skin’s color to change and appear discolored and bruised. 3- Deep Vein Thrombosis. Being the most serious side effect of varicose veins, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) results from blood clots, directly related to the vein illness. Those who have been diagnosed with DVT experience a tight, pulling sensation in their legs, along with redness, swelling, and overly sensitive nerve ending. If not monitored, the blood clot may move through the body, which can be fatal. 4- Lipodermatosclerosis. Last, we have Lipodermatosclerosis. This condition results from tissue in the legs remaining inflamed from varicose veins. The tissue becomes heavier and most sensitive and in most patients, their legs become too painful to move normally. When discussing your vein illness diagnosis, many questions and concerns you may have regarding Varicose Vein Treatment options will arise. The best way to effectively treat varicose veins is to be proactive. If you are ready to begin treating those painful, unpleasant problem veins, consult a specialist at one of our varicose vein treatment centers today! http://www.usaveinclinics.com/
