What Are the Causes of Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are enlarged veins that look bulged and twisted and usually appear on the legs and feet. They develop when the veins in your lower extremities stop functioning properly. Normally, veins have tight valves that close and open to allow blood to smoothly flow to the heart. However, because of several factors, these valves can stop working and cause blood to flow backwards and pool in the vein. This causes the vein to get swollen and, since the blood in them is deoxygenated (or doesn’t contain oxygen), they develop a blue or dark purple color.

Several factors can contribute to the development of varicose veins. These include:

Genetics

Several studies show that genetics play a role in varicose veins. So, if you have family members who have this condition, there’s a chance that you’ll develop it as well.

Hormonal fluctuations

Female hormones estrogen and progesterone can cause blood vessel walls to weaken, which is why women are more likely to develop varicose veins than men. Fluctuating levels of estrogen and progesterone can also damage the valves inside the veins. This is why women who are going through menopause, using hormone-based birth control methods, and taking hormone replacement therapy are at risk of developing varicose veins.

Pregnancy

The changing hormone levels during pregnancy can contribute to the development of varicose veins. Aside from hormones, the growing weight of the baby can increase the amount of pressure in the mother’s abdomen and pelvis and weaken the vein valves in the lower extremities. Fortunately, if you develop varicose veins during pregnancy, they can reduce in size and severity without medication around three to 12 months after you give birth.

Advanced age

Your veins become less elastic as you grow older, which means they’ll stretch and become more prone to accumulate blood. The valves in your veins also grow weaker as time passes by, so they become more likely to allow blood to pool in your veins.

Overweight

The pounds that you gain add more pressure to your pelvis and abdomen. These, in turn, make you more prone to developing varicose veins. Losing excess weight is the first step to reducing the appearance and severity of varicose veins.

Excessive standing or sitting

If your job requires you to stand most of the day, you might develop varicose veins since your blood doesn’t have much opportunity to circulate and ends up pooling in your legs. The same holds true if you sit down most of the time. To avoid this, find ways to get your legs moving throughout the day and promote proper blood circulation.

Poor fashion choices

While these issue rarely actually cause varicose veins, they can theoretically increase  the conditions that may cause worsening of veins in individuals who are otherwise prone to them. Wearing girdles and other tight clothing can increase pressure in your abdomen and pelvis and make you more prone to varicose veins. Wearing high heels is another factor; these shoes prevent your calf muscles from contracting as they do when wearing flat shoes. This means less blood is pushed from your legs back to your heart.  But wearing flat shoes will not eliminate the risk of developing varicose veins in people who are otherwise at risk.

 

These are some of the reasons why varicose veins develop. These veins usually won’t bother you but, if they become severe, they can cause pain and discomfort and irritate your skin on the affected area. When these happen, contact us here at Shore Vascular and Vein Center and take advantage of our varicose vein removal services in New Jersey. We offer both endovenous RF ablation and microphlebectomy to remove varicose veins and relieve you of their symptoms.

How Lasers Can Remove Tattoos

It is estimated that as many as 25% of American adults have one or more tattoos. When they got those tattoos, the intent was for them to be permanent. However, as is often the case, people’s situations can change over time and many people eventually don’t want that permanent tattoo anymore. The good news is that with modern pico second laser tattoo removal technology, most tattoos don’t need to be permanent anymore.

How Our Bodies Work to Remove Tattoos

Our bodies view tattoo ink as a foreign substance and constantly try to eliminate it. That is why tattoos seem to lighten slightly over time, but they never completely fade away. Our immune systems try to remove the particles of ink. However, most of those particles are too big for the immune system to handle. That’s why slight lightening is seen naturally over time, but overall, it is just a very small amount of change. Therefore, the tattoo is permanent.

The correct type of laser energy that is selective absorbed by the tattoo ink, actually breaks up the particles of ink into much smaller particles. The body is able to better eliminate these smaller ink particles. The more times that the tattoo is treated, the more small particles that are created, and the more tattoo ink is removed.

Different Variable in Laser Technology

However, not all lasers are able to break up tattoo ink. And, not all lasers that can break up tattoo ink are able to do that equally. There are numerous variables that affect how effectively a tattoo can be removed.

The first important laser variable is the wavelength of laser energy used. Different color ink will respond to different wavelengths of laser energy. For example, dark ink, such as black, should be treated with a different wavelength of energy than colored inks. Red ink is best treated with different wavelength energy than blue and green ink. Also, some colors are actually a mixture of different colors, so that is another important consideration.

Pico Second Laser Tattoo Removal

Another important laser variable is what is known as the pulse width. The pulse width refers to the duration of time that the laser pulse is emitted. The older generation of lasers that were used for tattoo removal, referred to as Q-switched lasers, used nanosecond (ns) pulse widths. The newer lasers can now use picosecond (ps) pulse widths. These pico lasers emit the laser energy 1000 times faster than the older lasers. Pico second laser tattoo removal is much more effective in removing most tattoo ink than the older lasers.

At Shore Vascular & Vein Center, the latest state-of-the-art picosecond enlighten laser is used for tattoo removal. The enlighten laser uses multiple different wavelengths of laser energy to treat both and multiple colors of tattoo ink. It also combines the latest pico laser technology with the best qualities Q-switched lasers to provide unprecedented effectiveness in removing tattoos more completely, and in fewer treatments than with older lasers.

Now Is The Perfect Time To Have Your Varicose Veins Treated

People frequently ask if one particular time of year is better than others to have varicose vein removal Ocean County NJ. While we are able to treat veins at any time, during any season, the winter is often the most convenient and preferable season for many people. There are multiple reasons for this which will be described below.

Reasons for Winter Varicose Vein Treatment

Many varicose vein treatments require the temporary use of compression stockings.  Many of the stockings made today are actually quite comfortable to wear. However, they are not very fashionable when worn with shorts.  During the winter months, we are usually wearing long pants rather than shorts. Therefore, the compression stockings are hidden under the pants. Also, being close to the Shore, many people want to spend a lot of time at the beach. This is not very conducive to the use of compression stockings either.  Having your veins treated during the winter months avoids these issues.

The second reason that winter is a preferable time to treat varicose veins for many people is that certain treatments require limiting sun exposure for a period of time after treatment. Therefore, for most, limiting sun exposure with varicose vein removal Ocean County NJ is usually not a problem during the winter months in our region.

The third reason that winter is preferable is that people often want to have their legs ready for summer. However, they don’t leave enough time time to schedule treatment and allow for complete healing before summer arrives. Unfortunately, it is quite common for people to make their first consultation to learn about treatment in April or May. Then to want treatment completed and their cosmetic results maximized before Memorial Day! We always try to complete people’s treatments in their desired time-frame. However, there needs to be enough time to obtain insurance authorization for covered procedures. We then need to schedule and complete the necessary treatment. If we begin the process long before summer gets here, it is easy to have varicose vein removal Ocean County NJ completed before “shorts season”.

Treatment for Varicose Veins

If you are experiencing the discomfort or appearance of unsightly varicose veins, treatment is easier than you might realize.  At Shore Vascular & Vein Center, we treat varicose and spider veins with minimally invasive procedures, such as Closure (Venefit), sclerotherapy, microphlebectomy and Excel V laser.  Most treatments are completed right in the office and do not require hospitalization.  Patients typically experience little to no discomfort and get back to work and other usual activities within about a day. In addition, depending on the condition being treated, many procedures are covered by health insurance. In our center, all procedures are performed by Dr. Jeffrey Gosin, a Board Certified vascular surgeon with over 20 years experience with thousands of successful vein treatment procedures.

Introducing Enlighten III - The Newest Laser to Remove Tattoos of All Colors

Shore Vascular & Vein Center, the region’s leader in laser tattoo removal Ocean County NJ, is pleased to be the first center in the entire Delaware Valley to offer the brand new, Enlighten III laser!  Back in 2015, they were the first center to offer what was, at that time, the latest picosecond laser, Enlighten.  Now, for the first time ever, the developers of the original Enlighten laser have created Enlighten III. This new laser adds a third wavelength for improved removal of some of the most difficult tattoo colors. Once again, Shore Vascular & Vein Center is on the cutting edge of providing this brand new and improved technology to their patients.

How Does the Enlighten III Work?

     Enlighten III combines 3 different laser wavelengths, along with both picosecond and nanosecond laser technology. This provides for the most complete laser tattoo removal Ocean County NJ available.  It is the equivalent of having 5 different lasers available to treat tattoos of all colors, on all skin types.  No other laser provides these 3 unique laser wavelengths combined in one unit.

This means people seeking tattoo removal can now expect to obtain markedly improved results in treating tattoos of multiple colors. Even the typically difficult colors to treat, such as green, turquoise and blue.  Furthermore, just like its predecessor, Enlighten, the Enlighten III laser will treat tattoos of the most common colors. It will be able to do so more completely, and in fewer treatments than with other lasers. That means less time, less cost and less pain for the individuals receiving the treatment than with other lasers.

Other Advantages

Another advantage to Enlighten III is that each treatment session will be faster and easier than with previous methods.  When various tattoo characteristics need to be treated, such as color, density, or shade of ink, the doctor is able to simply adjust the laser settings, to obtain the best possible results. Therefore, most treatment sessions (depending on size of tattoo) are able to be completed in 10 minutes or less.

In addition to offering the latest, most advanced laser technology, Shore Vascular & Vein Center offers free initial consultations for laser tattoo removal Ocean County NJ.

What’s New in the Treatment of Varicose Veins

Shore Vascular & Vein Center is committed to providing the latest, state-of-the-art treatments to their patients.  When new treatments become available for varicose vein removal New Jersey, they investigate those treatments for safety, effectiveness, patient experience, cost and other important factors. The team at Shore Vascular and Vein Center then make that information available to their patients and utilize all of the available information in deciding what treatments are most appropriate for each individual patient. Below is information originally published as an FDA News Release about a new treatment for varicose veins, called VenaSeal.

VenaSeal: New Treatment in Varicose Vein Removal New Jersey

“There are two types of veins—deep veins and superficial veins. Superficial veins are those that are close to the skin. Veins contain one-way valves that open to let blood flow through and then shut to keep blood from flowing backward. When valves of the superficial system are weak or damaged, blood can back up and pool, which can cause varicose veins that are enlarged, swollen or twisted.

Varicose veins often cause no symptoms but some patients may experience mild to moderate pain, blood clots, skin ulcers or other problems, according to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute at the National Institutes of Health. If these issues occur, health care professionals may recommend treatment such as compression stockings or medical procedures to remove or close the affected veins.

The VenaSeal system is intended for patients with superficial varicose veins of the legs that cause symptoms. The sterile kit is made up of an adhesive, a specially formulated n-butyl-2-cyanoacrylate, and delivery system components that include a catheter, guidewire, dispenser gun, dispenser tips, and syringes.

The device must be used as a system and differs from procedures that use drugs, laser, radio waves or cuts in the skin to close or remove veins. A trained healthcare professional inserts the catheter through the skin into the diseased vein to allow injection of the VenaSeal adhesive, a clear liquid that polymerizes into solid material. The healthcare professional monitors proper placement of the catheter using ultrasound imaging during delivery of the adhesive into the diseased vein to seal it.

What Do Other Health Care Professionals Say

“This new system is the first to permanently treat varicose veins by sealing them with an adhesive, thereby giving patients another treatment option for this common condition,” said William Maisel, M.D., M.P.H., acting director of the Office of Device Evaluation in the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health. “Because the VenaSeal system does not incorporate heat application or cutting, the in-office procedure can allow patients to quickly return to their normal activities, with less bruising.” “

Where Can I Get The New VenaSeal Treatment?

VenaSeal is available at Shore Vascular & Vein Center, along with numerous other minimally invasive treatments for venous insufficiency and varicose vein removal New Jersey.  If you are experiencing the symptoms or appearance of varicose veins, call for a consultation. It’s important to learn which treatments are best to treat your particular condition.

Laser Tattoo Removal Cost and Concerns

One of the most common questions related to laser tattoo removal that we are asked is, “How much will it cost to remove my tattoo?” The answer to that question depends on many factors and is impossible to know with 100% accuracy in the very beginning. In this article we will describe the various factors that affect laser tattoo removal cost so that you can apply those principles to your own tattoo.

Tattoo removal is a process. It requires multiple treatments that are spread apart by six to twelve weeks in most cases. The total cost to remove a tattoo will depend on the cost per treatment, which is based on the size of the tattoo, and the total number of treatments that are needed. Most tattoos that we treat at Shore Vascular & Vein Center range in price between $150 and $450 per treatment. Certain very large tattoos will cost more, but the majority that we treat fall within this range.

What we do not know, and there is no way to know for sure in the beginning, is how many treatments will be needed to reach the desired endpoint. That is because tattoo ink may contain numerous different substances and colors. For example, something that looks “green” to the naked eye may have black, or blue or other colors mixed in order for the tattoo artist to obtain the desired effect. Furthermore, inks can be injected at different depths in the skin. All of these elements will affect the speed of response of laser treatment.

At Shore Vascular & Vein Center, we use the latest Enlighten picosecond laser for tattoo removal. What that means, is that for most tattoos, we can complete treatment in approximately half as many treatment sessions than are required with the older Q-switched lasers that many other centers still use. In most cases, treatment will be completed in fewer than ten sessions.  We have had numerous patients who have reached their desired endpoint in two to five treatments.  In other centers that use older, less effective equipment, it is not uncommon for 20 or more treatments to be required.

Therefore, the total laser tattoo removal cost is generally less expensive, and faster, in our center than in centers using older equipment. Again, these are only guidelines based upon what we see in our center. Results will vary from person to person. Some tattoos are more resistant to treatment and will therefore require more sessions than average. However, even in those cases, the number of treatment sessions needed will likely be significantly less than what would be required with other lasers.

At Shore Vascular & Vein Center, we will carefully examine your tattoo and give you the best initial estimate possible regarding how many sessions we feel will be needed. While we can’t know exactly for sure in the beginning, we can usually get a reasonable estimate. We also offer various treatment packages that help to remove some of the uncertainly in laser tattoo removal cost. Many people will opt to purchase a package that provides multiple treatment sessions at one discounted price. In this way, people can often save 20% or more on the total cost of treatment. Also, some centers charge extra to remove tattoos with multiple colors. Our enlighten picosecond laser is effective in treating many different colors of ink, and we do not charge extra for that.

If you are feeling “tattoo regret” call Dr. Jeffrey Gosin at Shore Vascular & Vein Center in Somers Point, New Jersey (609) 927-VEIN (8346) for a FREE consultation. We proudly serve Atlantic County, Cape May County, Camden County, Ocean County Cumberland County and the surround southern New Jersey areas.

How to Get Rid of Those Pesky Spider Veins

Spider veins, also known as telangiectasias, are small, thin veins in the skin that usually appear pink or red in color and affect millions of people. They will often occur in clusters, which can give them the appearance of a bruise. They most commonly occur on the legs, but spider veins can also occur other places on the body, particularly on the face, around the nose. Spider veins can affect individuals of all ages. However, they tend to be more common, and get worse as we age.

Spider veins are related to varicose veins in the sense that they both represent a type of venous insufficiency. However, spider veins are most commonly a cosmetic issue, whereas the larger varicose veins are more frequently associated with physical symptoms such as leg pain, leg fatigue and other problems.

Spider veins tend to occur in groups with multiple veins. They are often numerous and can be unsightly. In other situations, spider veins can bleed. Bleeding is often a result of the spider veins being nicked while shaving. In other cases, the bleeding may be spontaneous. Bleeding from spider veins is far less common than cosmetic concerns.  However, when it does occur, the bleeding can be significant. This is especially true in individuals who take blood thinning medication for other unrelated problems. Fortunately, there are a variety of excellent treatment options available.

One of the longest used treatments for spider veins is called sclerotherapy. A medication called a sclerosing agent is injected into the clusters of veins during sclerotherapy. In the past, saline was the most common sclerosing agent used. Today, at Shore Vascular & Vein Center, we have replaced saline with a newer agent known as Asclera. The main advantage to Asclera is that it is much more comfortable for patients. With the older saline injections, people would experience a burning sensation during the injections. With the newer Asclera that we use, there is almost no pain at all.

We also are one of a very few centers in our region to offer the Excel V laser. Excel V is a specialized award winning laser that is specifically designed to treat vascular conditions like spider veins. The laser can be used anywhere on the body, including the face. It is also an excellent treatment for port wine stain birth marks, rosacea and numerous other vascular conditions.

We also offer a treatment call VeinGogh. During VeinGogh treatment, energy is delivered directly into the vein through a tiny needle. VeinGogh can be very effective in treating spider veins on the face and legs. However, the Excel V laser has largely replaced it in our office.

Regardless of the method used, spider vein treatment requires time, patience and repetition. Multiple spider vein treatments are commonly needed and they are typically spread apart by a few weeks. Every patient’s condition is different. The total amount of treatments needed are impossible to state in an article such as this. Our doctor will thoroughly examine your situation, discuss the various treatment options, and give you a realistic expectation of how long the process should take in your particular case.

At Shore Vascular & Vein Center in Somers Point, New Jersey, we specialize in the most advanced treatments of vascular disease, including spider veins. Our Board Certified Vascular Surgeon, Jeffrey Gosin, M.D performs all treatments. We proudly serve Atlantic County, Cape May County, Ocean County and the surround southern N.J. areas.

What to Expect During Laser Tattoo Removal Treatment

People often ask what the experience of laser tattoo removal treatment will be like. How long does treatment last? Does it hurt? Is there any preparation needed? Is there a lot of special care required following treatment?

The time that it takes to perform laser tattoo removal treatment is related to the size of the tattoo. Obviously, larger tattoos will take longer to treat. However, treatment, in general, can be performed quickly. In our office, a typical treatment will last approximately ten minutes. A very large tattoo might take a bit longer. Very small tattoos can often be treated in as little as one minutes or even less.

People most frequently describe the sensation of having laser tattoo removal treatment to be similar to being snapped with a rubber band. People also frequently say that the discomfort is no worse than getting the tattoo in the first place, but the treatment takes much less time. In our office, we typically cool the area prior to, and during treatment. We also apply a topical numbing cream to the area in preparation for treatment.  If people are extremely sensitive to the discomfort, the area can be treated with injectable numbing medication called lidocaine. However, this is rarely necessary.

Prior to undergoing laser tattoo removal, you should not tan the area that is going to be treated. The area should be kept clean. No makeup or cover-up should be applied to the area immediately prior to treatment.

Following treatment, the doctor or one of our nurses, will carefully dress the wound and will show you how to take care of it at home. The process is very simple. You will apply a nonstick ointment and dressing to the wound during the time that it is healing. You might notice some scabs form on the treated area during the healing phase. It is also not uncommon to have some blisters develop temporarily, especially with tattoos that have colored ink in them. You will keep it covered during this healing process. In most cases, this will last for less than a week. You will be instructed to avoid tanning the area during the healing process. Usually, within about a week, the appearance of the skin will return to normal. Then, over the next 6 -10 weeks, you will see that the ink is beginning to fade. We can take photographs prior to each treatment so that you can clearly compare before and after photos and follow your progress. If at any time between your treatment you have a question or a concern, we are happy to see you back in the office as needed to examine the area and address your concerns. There is never a charge for these visits.

If you are experiencing tattoo regret and are considering laser tattoo removal treatment, Shore Vascular & Vein Center in Somers Point, New Jersey is the only center in the region to offer the latest Enlighten picosecond laser for the fastest, most complete tattoo removal available for most tattoos.  We proudly serve all of southern New Jersey, including Atlantic County, Cape May County, Camden County, Cumberland County, and Ocean County.

Health Insurance Coverage for Varicose Vein Treatment

One of the most common concerns among individuals with varicose veins relates to the cost of treatment. Some people never seek varicose vein treatment because they are afraid that treatment will not be covered by their health insurance. This belief is often incorrect. Even though varicose veins cause a visible, often unsightly condition, many varicose veins are not just a cosmetic problem. That is because they often cause physical symptoms, such as pain, leg heaviness, leg fatigue, swelling, skin itching and other symptoms. Furthermore, they can also cause other significant complications such as bleeding and phlebitis (blood clots.)

In addition to the varicose veins themselves, the condition is commonly associated with  an underlying vascular condition called venous reflux disease, or venous insufficiency.  This is a defect in the function of the valves in the leg veins. It is a recognized medical condition. Therefore, it is wrong to automatically assume that varicose vein treatment will not be covered by insurance. When physical symptoms or other complications are associated with varicose veins, many health insurance plans will cover a variety of different treatments.

At Shore Vascular & Vein Center, our Board Certified Vascular Surgeon, Jeffrey Gosin, M.D. is a leader in varicose vein treatment and other vascular conditions. He will take a detailed medical history and perform a thorough examination of your condition. We will obtain a venous Doppler ultrasound test in our IAC Accredited noninvasive vascular laboratory. Through this complete vascular evaluation, Dr. Gosin will identify the nature and underlying source of your problem, not just what is obvious to the naked eye. He will then completely review everything in detail with you and make recommendations based on the true nature of your problem, as well as your goals.  His treatment recommendations will address the underlying source of your problem. If his evaluation indicates that your condition is not just cosmetic, he will go over all of the treatment options with you.

Our insurance specialists will contact your insurance company, provide all of the necessary information, and work as your advocate to have the medically necessary treatment covered. You will be kept informed of the entire process and no treatment will be performed until we have received a response from your insurance company regarding coverage.

If, on the other hand, his evaluation indicates that your particular problem is simply a cosmetic one, he will first reassure you that there is not a serious underlying condition. If you are interested in pursuing cosmetic treatment, he will go over the available options for treatment with you. In these cases, we always inform our patients of all pricing information in advance of performing any treatment. It is impossible to state costs in an article like this, since everyone’s case is individual. However, in most cases, people tell us that the cost is less than they expected.

If you are suffering from the discomfort and appearance of varicose veins, we recommend that you schedule a consultation with Dr. Jeffrey Gosin at Shore Vascular & Vein Center in Somers Point, N.J. We are the region’s premiere vascular and vein care center, serving Atlantic County, Cape May County, Ocean County, Cumberland County and the surrounding southern New Jersey region for more than 20 years.  We perform both “medical” and cosmetic treatments of all vascular conditions.
