What are varicose veins?
Varicose veins are enlarged, swollen veins that rise above the surface of the skin. They are caused by a condition called venous insufficiency, which means that the valves that prevent blood from flowing backward become weak and allow blood to pool in the vein.
Varicose veins can be the result of heredity (family history), prolonged standing, sun exposure hormone changes, or your weight. For some, they can be very painful, and for others, there may be no symptoms at all. If you or someone you know is suffering from enlarged, swollen veins, please call Vein Care Specialists of Lakeland, Florida at (863) 577-0269. We offer safe, easy and non-surgical treatments for varicose veins – most are 30 minutes or less.
Can I ignore varicose veins?
Most varicose veins are not life-threatening. However, left untreated they can eventually lead to more serious complications, including inflammation, blood clots, skin ulcers, bleeding and deep vein thrombosis.
