Varicose veins are enlarged, twisted veins caused by the pressure of body weight and standing for long periods of time. Sometimes, this is extremely annoying as it causes a lot of pain, aching, and discomfort in legs and ankles. In many cases, this conditions leads to more serious problems. This may also be a sign of higher risk of other disorders of the circulatory system. Here are some of the factors which can increase the person’s likelihood or develop varicose veins:
- Leg injury, obesity, prolonged standing that weakens vein valves.
- Increasing age
- Hormonal changes which occur during periods, pregnancy, and menopause and taking birth control pills and other medicines containing progesterone and estrogen.
- Severe pooling of blood in the veins which slows down the return of blood to the heart.
The symptoms include leg heaviness, swelling in the legs, aching pain, easily tired legs, darkening of the skin, itching or numbness in the legs. Though there are various treatments to get rid of varicose veins, but the most effective one is laser treatment depending on the severity of the veins, two to five treatments are generally needed to remove varicose veins in the legs.
