Many people seek help from our vein doctor because of the presence of varicose veins. They usually develop in the legs and can be seen through the skin. They appear blue in color and will often cause the skin to bulge out in a way that resembles pieces of cord under the skin. Together, these things create an unwanted appearance that prompts many people to look for the most feasible way of getting rid of their veins.
Varicose veins can develop because the blood inside the vessels begins to pool as a result of venous insufficiency. This is a condition in which the blood does not flow properly because of the poor condition of the veins. Inside the veins are one-way valves that are there to keep the blood flowing in the correct direction. When they quit working right, gravity can impact the blood flow and cause it to pool inside the veins. This makes them enlarge and develop into varicose veins.
In addition to the cosmetic problems that varicose veins can cause, there can be symptoms and discomforts attributed to them as well. People who spend most of their day seated in one position are more likely to experience them. Those who spend much of the day standing are likely to have them too. Primarily symptoms will typically include swelling of the lower legs and ankles. People with varicose veins can also experience aching, itching, burning, and tingling in the areas where the varicose veins are located. If you are going through periods of discomfort, visit our vein doctor to find out how you can experience relief.
You can also visit our vein doctor to treat your spider veins. These are smaller vessels that can become visible through the skin. They can look like finely interwoven lines and are red, blue or purple in color. While they normally do not cause any physical discomforts, many people visit our vein doctor to get them treated and improve their appearance.
