An estimated 30%-40% of the U.S. adult population is afflicted with some type of vein problem, and most often these conditions impact the legs. In a normal vein, valves work to move blood back to the heart. When valves malfunction, blood pools in the veins. This condition is known as venous insufficiency. While venous insufficiency is not considered a serious health problem, it can cause varicose veins, leg pain and swelling, skin discoloration and ulcerations for both women and men.
There are two main types of vein conditions that we treat at Fox Valley Vein Centers:
We offer a variety of treatment options to relieve the discomfort and unsightliness of varicose and spider veins:
We may ask you to wear Compression Stockings. Compression Stockings are a thicker, heavier type of stocking that is prescribed by your doctor to help prevent or alleviate the symptoms of spider and varicose veins. If worn as directed, they will help you before and after treatment.
Please contact Fox Valley Vein Centers at 815-786-3222 if you have any questions about vein treatments or would like to schedule an appointment.
