Varicose Veins are twisted and swollen vein in the legs which may be red, bluish and purple in color. Veins contain one-way valves to ensure that the blood flows towards the heart. If the valves are weak or damaged, blood can backup and overload the pressure on the veins . This excess pressure created causes widening of veins leading to varicose veins.
These are also called varicosities and occur when the veins enlarge or overfill with the blood. Varicose usually affect the legs or feet area as standing and walking upright increases the pressure in the veins of your lower body. Some people may take spider veins , mild variation of varicose veins as a cosmetic concern. For other people, varicose veins are more painful and lead to discomfort while sitting or walking. Varicose veins affect almost twice as many women as men and are more common in older women. At Pristyn care, our surgeon offers Laser Surgery to treat the varicose veins which is a minimally invasive technique that requires no stitches, bed rest and hospital admission.
