Causes of Varicose Veins

Causes of Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are an unsightly, sometimes painful condition that mostly affect older men and women. While any type of vein is capable of becoming varicose, it is most likely to occur in the legs and feet. This is due to the built up blood pressure in these areas while walking or standing. As an individual ages, the ability to push blood back up to the heart weakens and can cause high blood pressure in the lower half of the body. However, this condition is highly treatable. For younger women, varicose veins may occur during pregnancy as a result of changing blood pressure. Varicose veins rarely worsen into blood clots or ulcers, however treating varicose veins through simple procedures such as sclerotherapy or laser surgery can improve your health and your confidence in your appearance.

Symptoms of Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are generally harmless, but treating them before they become a problem will decrease potential risk in the future. Symptoms to be aware of include the following:

  • Dark purple or blue veins
  • Twisted or bulging veins
  • Aching in legs
  • Swelling
  • Pain or itching in legs

Spider veins, or less severe varicose veins, can cause embarrassment and discomfort when untreated. Let a Des Moines medical spa work with you to find a solution to your cosmetic issue.
