More Information

Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are a common condition which continues to affect millions of people. Not only is it uncomfortable but it is unsightly too. Aside from the fact that varicose veins are a cosmetic problem, it can also cause severe disabilities and other deadly complications.

Varicose veins are dilated and swollen veins which run throughout the length of the leg. They are incapable of carrying blood from the legs against gravity towards the lungs and heart. As gravity pulls back the blood, it flows in the reverse direction and over-fills these veins. This gives the veins a bulging appearance.

Night cramps, heavy tired legs, aching, and itching are few of the effects of varicose veins. Unless treated, these swollen veins can also cause blood clots, skin ulceration and inflammation in the veins.

Spider Veins

Spider veins are not only an embarrassing but also common condition among numerous adult women. This condition is similar to varicose veins but is of a smaller size and causes less pain.

Spider veins commonly appear on the face and legs. These are dilated and tiny blood vessels seen as bundles of small blue or red veins near the skin’s surface. The location of these veins gives them a dark and prominent appearance. They can be branch-shaped, spider-shaped or can be short and thin jagged lines.

Common effects associated with spider veins are minor pain, aches and itching; all of which are not health hazards. Spider veins are largely a cosmetic problem. Many women stop wearing skirts or shorts due to the bruised appearance and embarrassment caused by spider veins.

Spider veins are caused by veins which become swollen and dilated with stagnant blood. This may be due to hereditary factors, prolonged standing or sitting, or even pregnancy. Changes in the hormonal levels during pregnancy can lead to poor blood circulation. This can cause the growth of spider veins.
