What are varicose veins?

The function of veins is to carry blood from the limbs back to the heart. In healthy veins, this happens effortlessly. But sometimes, for reasons such as age, stress, weight gain, pregnancy or heredity, the valves that pump the blood through the veins begin to falter or fail. Rather than flowing steadily, blood then slows, pools or even reverses. This condition, called venous reflux, causes the knotting or bulging appearance of varicose veins as well as the uncomfortable symptoms that Patterson, Merced, Turlock, Chowchilla, Gustine, and Newman area vein sufferers often associate with the condition.

What about spider veins?

Spider veins seldom cause physical discomfort, but many vein sufferers find them to be unsightly and wish to get rid of spider veins because of this. Spider veins are tiny red, blue or purple lines sometimes compared to roadmaps or cobwebs in appearance. They can be seen close to the surface of the skin on the head, neck, arms, legs or chest.

Why seek treatment for varicose veins or spider veins?

Most people wish to get rid of veins because they are uncomfortable and/or unattractive. However, vein problems can also be indicative of more serious circulatory ailments, so it is wise to seek medical attention for any kind of vein irregularities.
