Do you have bulging, discolored leg veins? Varicose veins are a sign of venous insufficiency or abnormal veins under the skin that you cannot see. If you have varicose veins, you should know that they respond well to the modern treatments available. A skilled vein specialist can eliminate the appearance of these veins and restore healthy leg circulation.
What are Varicose Veins?
Healthy leg veins carry blood back to the heart, working against the force of gravity. They rely on one-way valves that prevent blood from pooling. When these veins weaken, blood can flow backward, causing your leg veins to bulge and stretch. Varicose veins cause symptoms such as aching, tiredness, cramps, restless legs, swelling, heaviness, throbbing, or discomfort. While visible surface veins may bother you, deeper underlying veins also require treatment to restore normal circulation.
