Q: Is it going to hurt?
We are focused on patient comfort at Missouri Vein Care. We take many steps to ensure your comfort. Before and during the procedure, we provide relaxation medication in both pill and IV form to ensure your comfort. You may have “conscious sedation” meaning you will be relaxed and comfortable during your treatment.
You can carry on a conversation, tell stories or some people prefer to take a nap. It’s up to you – let us know what you prefer. During the laser treatment, a numbing solution is used for comfort. At Missouri Vein Care, we take pride in making your experience a comfortable and positive one.
There may be mild discomfort as the treated veins complete the process of closing off. Tylenol is usually all that is needed for discomfort. After treatment, our patients may also take Ibuprofen for several days to minimize inflammation and promote healing.

Q: Do vein problems in my leg mean I have a circulation problem?
A: If you have Chronic Vein Insufficiency, your ankles may swell and your calves may feel tight. Your legs may also feel heavy, tired, restless, or achy. You may feel pain while walking or shortly after stopping.
CVI may be associated with varicose veins. Varicose veins are swollen veins that you can see through the skin. They often look blue, bulging, and twisted. Large varicose veins can lead to skin changes like rashes, redness, and sores.
CVI can also cause problems with leg swelling because of the pressure of the blood pooling in the veins. Your lymphatic system may also produce fluid, called lymph, to compensate for CVI.
Your leg tissues may then absorb some of this fluid, which can increase the tendency for your legs to swell. In severe cases, CVI and the leg swelling can cause ulcers to form on the lower parts of the leg.
