Understanding Varicose and Spider Veins
If you have varicose or spider veins, then you may also have questions about why the veins started forming, why they can be painful, and how you can treat them. At La Jolla Laser, we understand that you may have an abundance of questions about your own vein condition, and might be searching for effective treatments. That is why we stay up-to-date with the latest procedures to ensure that we can help our patients treat varicose and spider veins.
Weak or damaged valves in the veins cause varicose veins. When valves become weak, blood can leak into the veins and begin pooling. As a result, the pooling can make the veins enlarge, and in-turn, varicose. Spider veins can also be caused from a backup of blood, however, they also can be caused by changes in hormones, sun exposure, and various injuries.
What Increases the Risk of Developing Varicose and Spider Veins?
There are many factors that can increase the risks associated with the development of varicose and spider veins. These risks can include:
- Increasing age
- Family medical history of vein conditions
- Changes in hormone levels as with pregnancy and menopause
- Sitting or standing for extended periods of time
- Exposure to the sun
