The veins in your body have an important job in safeguarding your health. When they are healthy and fully functional, they carry blood from the parts of your body to your heart. However, they also can become aesthetically compromised due to factors beyond your control. You can choose the best way to treat your vein and vascular problems by learning what treatment options are available to you at our office in South Texas.
What are Varicose and Spider Veins?
One of the most common vein and vascular conditions from which people suffer today is varicose veins. Varicose veins are visible under the surface of your skin and are most commonly located in your legs and ankles. They are blue, purple, or red and have a bulging or twisted appearance. These veins can undermine your confidence in the way you look and compel you to cover your legs and ankles with long clothing.
In some cases, they can cause other health problems like blood clots or ulcers. Varicose veins themselves are caused by factors like:
• Prolonged standing
• Injury to your legs
Symptoms of varicose veins include:
• Mild pain
Spider veins are relatively painless and more of a cosmetic nuisance than a critical medical issue. However, because spider veins can appear not only in your legs or ankles but also your face, you may want to have them treated promptly. This condition gets its name from their spider web-like or tree branch appearance. As with varicose veins, they can cause rare health side effects.
