In some cases of advanced vein diseases, the valves in the veins near the skin’s surface are so damaged that blood and other fluids pool in the vessels. As the pressure builds in the veins, fluid starts to seep into the tissue and the skin starts to become thicker and swells. Changes in the acidity of this tissue makes it deteroriate more. Similar to a blister, the skin eventually breaks to allow the fluid to drain. Needless to say, leg ulcers are extremely painful and require medical attention.
As the area’s leading authority on vein disease treatments, Dr. Seaver provides treatment for leg ulcers so they heal quickly, and he also assesses and treats the underlying vein disease that caused the ulcer. If you have a leg ulcer, you need to have it treated as soon as possible to avoid infection and possible loss of mobility. Dr. Seaver treats many people who have leg ulcers and other symptoms of vein disease each year. The combination of his expertise and his staff’s compassion are just two of the reasons that the Laser & Vein Center of North Jersey is a leading vein treatment practice in the metropolitan area.
