Everything You Need To Know About Varicose Veins

Vein treatmentBelieve it or not, Varicose veins are much more common than you’d think. Almost 50% of the adult population in the United States has this common vascular condition. This condition typically occurs on the lower legs. While it can look like just a cosmetic issue, if left untreated, it can lead to much more serious health problems. Varicose vein treatment can help prevent that from happening. Here is everything you need to know about varicose veins.

What Are Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins, often seen in blue and purple, are enlarged veins that swell up and are located in the legs. When veins become weak, blood can begin to pool up in the veins and create pressure, causing them to swell up.

Signs of Varicose Veins

For many individuals, there are actually no symptoms for this condition besides actually seeing them on the surface of your skin. However, it is possible to experience some symptoms. These symptoms include:

  • Throbbing
  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Discoloration
  • Cramping

If you are experiencing these symptoms, it might be an indication of varicose veins. While it is typically just a cosmetic problem, it can start to be painful. If this is the case, it is important to seek out treatment options. If varicose veins are not treated in a timely manner, more complications can develop.

Cause of Varicose Veins

Varicose veins typically occur when your veins become weakened and aren’t able to maintain the continuous flow of blood back to the heart. Some other variables include being older, being obese, living a sedentary lifestyle, and genetics. Any one of these factors can be the reason for varicose veins, but it is important to exercise and maintain a healthy weight, as this can help prevent the development of varicose veins.
