Frequently Asked Questions
About Vein Disease in Chicago

More than 80 million people in the United States suffer from venous disorders – 40 million suffer from varicose veins. Veins have one-way valves that help keep blood flowing in the proper direction, from the lower extremities back to the heart. If these valves malfunction, blood can flow backwards and pool in the vein, causing it to stretch and damage other healthy valves.

These enlarged blood vessels fall into three groups: varicose veins, reticular veins, and spider veins (telangiectasias). Spider veins are visible on the surface of the skin as red, blue or purple lines. Varicose veins are larger and deeper and often look like bluish bumps under the skin.

Let’s face it. The routines to cover up those embarrassing veins are a daily struggle. And what they are trying to tell you could be more than just ‘skin deep’. The fact is unsightly spider and varicose veins are symptoms of circulatory failure, a more serious underlying medical condition. As are fatigue, rough skin, cramps and restless legs that only get worse with time.

At Chicago Vein Institute, our board-certified physicians specialize in treating vein disease utilizing the latest minimally-invasive techniques.

What are Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are swollen, dark blue or purple blood vessels. They often look like twisted cords, and usually appear on the calves, inside of the legs, and ankles. Symptoms associated with varicose veins include pain, heaviness, fatigue, burning, swelling, cramping, throbbing and restlessness. See our Varicose Vein page for information regarding varicose vein treatments and give us a call today to schedule your consultation with Chicago’s preeminant vein doctors. Insurance may even cover your veins so you can stop covering them up.

What are Skin Ulcers

Skin Ulcers are a very serious condition and typically require prompt attention to reverse the effects and prevent further damage to the skin and leg. A skin ulcer is caused by a disorder called venous stasis ulcers. One of the warning signs that a venous stasis ulcer is about to occur is a rapid darkening of the skin around the ankle or foot. Over time, the skin may take on leathery or wax-like qualities. Eventually, the skin will breakdown completely if the problem isn’t treated. Learn more about the causes and risk factors of vein disease.

I don’t see any red or purple vessels or any bumps. Could I still have vein disease?

Yes. Physical examination and complete color Doppler ultrasound can detect problems with blood vessels that aren’t visible otherwise. Ruling out an underlying medical condition, which is critical to getting to the issue of swollen, red, restless legs, that will only continue to get worse over time and lead to more serious medical conditions.

What are the benefits and risks associated with Color Doppler Ultrasound?

Benefits

  • Ultrasound scanning provides clear and more concise images than x-rays or various other imaging methods.
  • Venous ultrasound can detect blood clots in the veins, and thus can help prevent the onset of a pulmonary embolism (a blood clot that is dislodgedand flows to the lungs), a much more serious condition that is treatable if caught early.
  • Ultrasound scanning is an inexpensive and widely available method of imaging. The procedure is quick, pain-free, and the body is not exposed to any radiation. In addition, an ultrasound is completely non-invasive.
  • The procedure may be repeated as often as is necessary without risking patient health.

Risks

  • There are no known risks associated with ultrasound imaging – sonography has no harmful effect on humans.
What is Sclerotherapy?

Please visit our cosmetic sclerotherapy page page for more information on sclerotherapy.

What is Endovenous Laser Treatment and which vein conditions is it used to treat?

Please visit our EVLA page for more information on Endovenous Laser Treatment.

Is Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy different?

Please visit our medical sclerotherapy page for more information on ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy.

What are Spider Veins?

Spider Veins or telangiectasias, are small, thin, blood vessels visible beneath the top layers of skin. They appear most commonly on the face, thighs, and feet, and may look like a series of lines, tree branches, or a spider- or web-like shape with a dark center. Although usually considered only a cosmetic problem, spider veins can show symptoms of a burning sensation or a dull, throbbing pain, and can lead to varicose veins and other serious complications. See our Spider Vein page for information regarding the treatment of spider veins.

What is Venous Insufficiency

As your arteries move nutrient rich blood from your heart to the rest of your body, veins consisting of periodic valves carry blood back to your heart to complete the circulatory system.  These valves are responsible for preventing blood from flowing backwards in your veins. Venous insufficiency occurs when your veins struggle to send blood from your limbs back to the heart, causing blood to pool in the veins in your legs.

Several factors can cause venous insufficiency, though it’s most commonly caused by blood clots (deep vein thrombosis) and varicose veins. Even if you have a family history of venous insufficiency, there are simple steps you can take to lower your chances of developing the condition.

Symptoms include fatigue, aching, itching, burning, throbbing, cramping, restlessness, and heaviness. Managing these symptoms and the daily routines to cover up unsighlty veins can be a daily struggle you don’t have to put up with anymore.

What is an ultrasound and do I really need an ultrasound even for spider veins?

In general terms, ultrasound is an imaging method that uses sound waves reflecting off of the tested area of the body to create an image. The created image provides important information to the doctor, and assists in diagnosis and treatment. The created images are captured in real time, and provide “video” of internal tissues and organs in their normal environment. Ultrasound scanning provides clear and more concise images than x-rays or various other imaging methods. At Chicago Vein Institute, our Registered Vascular Technologist performs a complete color Doppler ultrasound of the deep and superficial venous systems. With the ultrasound, we can see veins smaller than a millimeter. The ultrasound is used look for blood clots in the lower circulatory system, identify any trouble areas, and provide information on the severity of the condition. Your initial visit, which includes a medical history exam and the venous ultrasound procedure, usually takes 1½ to 2 hours. The Ultrasound procedure itself is usually less than 1 hour, and is generally painless.

Please visit our Color Doppler Ultrasound page for more information.

What are compression stockings and why would I need to wear them?

Compression stockings are generally the first method of treatment patients use before they undergo more intensive/invasive treatments. They are meant to be worn all day, applying permanent pressure to the blood vessels in the leg, which helps the blood flow back up to the heart more easily. Aside, from being used as preventative aid, compression stockings should also be worn after more intensive treatments. This ensures that the blood is redistributed to the remaining blood vessels quicker, as well as speed up recovery time. Properly fitted compression stockings can help temporarily reverse the effects of vein disease, as well as lessen discomfort and skin damage. Compression stockings are available in a variety of colors, styles and strengths.

If you suffer from rhoids (you know what I’m talking about!) just come here. They treat them with infrared laser to reduce the swelling and it helps tremendously. It’s a quick procedure and you’ll be feeling better soon after. Don’t walk around in silence. Yes it’s awkward but it’s better than... being in pain! I hope my review helps someone. I didn’t see any other reviews about them so thought I would help others out there. They do get busy so keep that in mind. Appointments are not always immediate. They were nice enough to squeeze me in one day on the same day basis because I was in so much pain. I’m very grateful for them.read more

Dr. Sunje and his staff: Sandy/Vanessa- Receptionists; Cece, Paul, Madeline, Jackie, Vanessa, Joanna and Gabriela, are professional at what they do, respectively, yet personal in caring about my well being throughout the process. Each time I went, regardless of who was assisting with my outpatient... procedures, they were in tuned to making sure I was taken care of. Dr. Sunje called me on a Saturday to see how I was doing from an outpatient procedure I had completed the previous day. I look forward to my visits knowing that the best outcome will be achieved with Dr. Sunje and his staff.read more

This is the best vein clinic I have been to. Staff is very friendly and pleasant and Dr. Sunje gives you his undivided attention. I went for spider vein sclerotherapy on my legs and they did not only do an excellent job removing spider veins but also walked me through the steps of the procedure and... did a quick ultrasound to determine and explain the underlaying causes of my spider veins. I highly recommend this clinic to anyone with vein-related concerns on their legs.read more

I had my first laser hair removal treatment a few weeks ago with Shari. From the moment I walked in she (and the entire staff) made me feel completely at ease with her professional, polite demeanor and her extensive knowledge of the process. I was nervous to say the least. I had heard procedures... like this could be painful, but she did absolutely everything she could to make me feel comfortable and confident in the process. I still have 5 more sessions to go but Im still completely amazed at the progress they already made in one treatment. Shari took the process from something I had great anxiety about, to something I am actually looking forward to.Most of all I was impressed with her immediate email followup when I arrived home. You just don't see things like that too often. She seemed genuinely interested in how I was feeling and my experience overall. She took the time to answer all of my followup questions also which was beyond refreshing. I am so thankful there are professionals out there that take their job seriously and consider the patients feelings in everything they do. I would definitely refer them to all of my friends!read more

I highly recommend the Chicago Vein Institute! They made me feel so comfortable with their welcoming staff and incredibly knowledgeable assistants and doctors. Dr. Sunje is the best in his field and I feel so very fortunate to have been treated by him and his staff. Besides being a perfectionist... at what he does, he is also warm, welcoming and thoughtful! The two procedures I had were endovenous laser ablation and sclerotherapy. I walked away from each procedure with little to no discomfort. I followed all the pre-and post care instructions and so I am healing very well. I honestly cannot thank the staff and doctors enough for making this experience as easy as they did.

I can't thank the entire staff enough for everything. I had two pregnancies in my early 20's back to back and developed varicose veins. I was extremely insecure and in severe pain. I tried everything to cover it up with make-up, airbrush, and tanning. I tried just about every home remedy nothing... worked. I am so grateful to Cici for making me feel confident she is so great at what she does. And to Dr. Sunje for relieving me from the pain. I can have my kids sit on my lap now with no pain or discomfort at all. My legs feel and look so much better. Everyone works so hard to make you feel comfortable. I wouldn't trust going anywhere else.read more

I would recommend Dr. Sunje to anyone.I had really bad varicose veins in my both legs and it... started like long ago and they kept getting worse.

The Staff is very helpful, nice, and professional. They covered all my worries. Thank you so much for the work they do.read more

I started seeing tiny red spider veins in my legs during my first pregnancy, and they kept getting worse. I had treatments done for my varicose veins and it wasn’t painful at all. I felt right at home when going to my treatments. The Staff is very helpful, nice, and professional. They covered... all my worries and they cured all my varicose veins. I’m not ashamed anymore how my thighs look when I wear shorts. My legs feel lighter and do not hurt anymore. I wish I had done this sooner! I recommend, without hesitation, the physicians and staff at Chicago Vein Institute. read more

My enormous "THANK YOU" TO DR SUNJE who helped me to avoid a surgery that i had always thought was the only solution in my case. I was suffering from internal hemorrhoid for more than a year. An attempt to heal it out myself with the help of ointments led me to a shameful failure. The overuse of... hydrocortisone creams for a long period of time resulted in worsening of my condition dramatically. Fortunately, i got into good hands. Besides the progressive healing results of my "big time problem" i've experienced a warm atmosphere of clinic staff, an outstanding professionalism and humanistic attitude of Dr Mensur O Sunje, It's worthless to suffer from an issue than can be taken care of promptly with successful results!!!!!!THANK YOU VERY MUCHread more
