Spider veins and Varicose veins information - Santa Monica Vein Center in Los Angeles

Varicose veins and spider veins are among the most common medical concerns among healthy adults.  Genetic factors, occupational factors, and level of activity can determine whether varicose veins arise on the legs and thighs.  Despite a healthy diet and lifestyle, the patients may have a genetic predisposition to develop varicose veins that cannot be eliminated with lifestyle alone.  Millions of healthy adults suffer from some type of vein problem, including spider veins, thread veins, varicose veins, and bulging veins on the legs and thighs.  These veins can cause symptoms such as achiness, leg pain, discomfort, heaviness, early muscle fatigue, swelling, and muscle cramping. 


If you have problems with your legs and thighs in terms of the development of varicose veins, newer procedures can eliminate the medical problems associated with varicose veins using simple laser based and radiofreqency based options.  Laser has eliminated the need for surgery in many cases and can reduce the risk of problems to the vein circulation and can improve your overall health.  The goal of vein treatment is to improve the condition of your venous circulation, thereby reducing the number and severity of abnormal veins in the legs and thighs.  There are cosmetic and medical benefits to vein treatments and these will be discussed during an in depth consultation with Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian. 


 Dr. Karamanoukian is a double board certified surgeon specializing in cosmetic plastic surgery as well as vein surgery.  He is a diplomate of the American Board of Plastic Surgery as well as the American Board of Phlebology (vein surgery).  If you have questions about your veins and wish to undergo treatment for varicose veins, please call our Los Angeles vein surgery patient care coordinator at 310-998-5533.
