Varicose veins, these dark blue or perhaps purple veins that seem to bulge above the surface of your skin are bothersome and just plain ugly. Treatment of varicose veins isn’t just for cosmetic consideration, these veins can cause pain and some level of discomfort. In some rare cases, they can even cause bleeding leg sores.
The veins in your legs have a very difficult job. Their job is to propel the oxygen-depleted blood from your leg all the way back to your heart. And they do this working against gravity and the added pressure of your body weight. You see, your leg veins have one-way valves that prevent your blood from flowing back into your leg. But over time, these valves become weak and stop functioning in normal capacity. This happens as we age. As a result of the weakened valves, blood begins to pool in the veins right under the surface of your skin. The veins get enlarged and become less elastic.
There are several types of enlarged veins including varicose and spider veins. The most common symptoms of these types of veins include burning, aching and even weakness after prolonged standing. You may also suffer swollen feet or even develop a rash, all good reasons to consider treatment.
