Varicose vein treatment includes various methods used to remove varicose veins and their cause. Varicose veins are enlarged, visible veins, but they are usually caused by a problem with the deeper vessels that feed them. Though they may occur anywhere on the body, they most often affect the legs.
Your veins are lined with valves that help the blood move against gravity back to the heart. These valves prevent the blood from flowing downward. However, almost all of us will eventually experience these valves starting to fail. As the blood pools in the lower leg, symptoms such as Restless Leg Syndrome, ankle swelling, leg cramping, and tired or aching legs start to occur.
Varicose veins develop when these valves stop working correctly, and the extra pressure from the blood pushing on the vein wall causes it to enlarge and become distorted.
You may consider your varicose veins a cosmetic concern, but 95% of the time, there is a medical issue at hand. When left untreated, your enlarged veins affect circulation and may lead to other health problems like skin damage, leg swelling, and, eventually, leg ulcers.
