Varicose veins are dilated veins that swell, cause pain, discomfort, and a lot of tiredness – and are anti-aesthetic. They are symptoms of functional anomalies of the circulatory system, usually appearing under the skin of the legs, bluish in color, accompanied by small bulges.
Rarer in men, they mainly affect women and need to be followed because they can become risk factors for circulatory diseases, damaging veins, producing intravenous clots, arteriovenous fistulas and even tumors.
Factors that cause varicose veins include genetic predisposition, pregnancy, aging, overweight, increased abdominal pressure caused by liver disease, fluid retention, heart failure, and a history of venous thrombosis.
Varicose veins may develop in people who remain long standing or sitting, exerting higher blood pressure on the lower limbs. Frequent physical activity is a good form of prevention. Laser treatments in addition to the use of pulsed light are Cosmiatria’s most modern resources for treating varicose veins.
