Let Alpha Vein Clinic in Las Vegas treat your spider veins

Venous Insufficiency has many different symptoms to look out for. With Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) affecting a large portion of United States citizens, it’s important to know what the signs and symptoms are. Varicose veins and spider veins are both CVI symptoms that are typically visible to the naked eye.

What Exactly Are Spider Veins?

Spider veins are blue, red or purple clusters of blood vessels that are apparent on the surface of the skin. These blood vessels usually are shaped like tree branches or spider webs. They can cover a small area or larger areas, and can indicate more serious,underlying vein problems.

Spider veins are the result of weak or damaged valves within vein walls. Veins carry blood from all areas of the body back to the heart for it to be replenished with oxygen
and nutrients. Once valves are defective and weak, blood can no longer move against gravity, up the leg to the heart. Blood begins to flow backward and build up in the legs. Blood vessels are negatively affected by vein valve dysfunction and their irritation makes itself known in the form of spider veins.

Why Me?

The appearance of spider veins is extremely common. They can be unappealing and the urge to eradicate them is normal. You are more likely to develop spider veins as you age, if you are a woman or if you spend extended amounts of time standing or sitting. As we age, our bodies weaken. Valves in vein walls, weaken with time as well. Normal wear and tear on an aging body can cause vein valves to be endered insufficient. Hormonal changes that affect women can trigger spider veins. Birth control, menopause and pregnancy, are examples of hormonal changes known to contribute to spider veins. However, CVI is also very common for men. If your occupation requires you to stand or sit all day, it may be contributing to spider veins. Blood circulation is more difficult when your legs are in these stagnant positions all day. Finally, genetics play a big role in whether or not you are susceptible to Chronic Venous Insufficiency. Symptoms of CVI, beside spider veins and varicose veins, include: cramping, swelling, itching, leg pain, leg fatigue and heaviness, skin discoloration and even leg ulcers.
