There’s Nothing Wrong With Being Vain About Your Veins

Varicose veins are veins engorged with blood due to weakened or damaged valves within vein walls. These swollen veins are a common condition, affecting 50% of people over the age of 50. When these valves fail to function properly, blood becomes backed up causing veins to become swollen, twisted and painful.

How Did I Get These?

Although maintaining an active lifestyle can minimize the risk of developing varicose veins, they are often a hereditary issue. Varicose veins are simply due to poor circulation. The main risk factors are genetics, age, hormonal changes, sitting or standing for extended amounts of time and sedentary lifestyles.

What are varicose vein symptoms?

If you have developed varicose veins, you may have the appearance of enlarged, swollen, blue or twisted veins. These veins are closely associated with spider veins, which are often indicators of varicosities beneath the surface. Symptoms of varicose veins, and the Venous Insufficiency that causes them, include:

Swelling in the legs or ankles

Pain or aching of the legs

Visible Varicose Veins or Spider Veins

Dry or itchy skin

Cramps or Charley Horses, especially at night.

Thickening of the skin

Skin Discoloration

Varicose veins are often thought of as an aesthetic problem, but these veins are part of a progressive vein disease called Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) and can cause painful symptoms that interfere with daily life.
