Varicose Veins

The abnormal large, twisted bulging skin veins called varicose veins are caused by a weakness in the vein valves of the legs.  These are a much more serious problem than smaller reticular veins or spider vein, as they often quickly progress to a more serious form of venous disease that is associated with symptoms and complications.  Varicose veins are associated with a serious form of venous disease called venous reflux disease or chronic venous insufficiency.  It is typically hereditary and often worsens as a process of aging and during pregnancy.   Some of the common symptoms of varicose veins include:

  • Restless legs
  • Tiredness or easy fatigue of the legs
  • Itching or burning
  • Cramping and throbbing
  • Ankle swelling at the end of the day
  • Heaviness or pressure in the legs
  • Increasing number of darkening skin veins that may bulge
  • Darkening or redness of the skin
  • Increased warmth of the sin

Complications of varicose veins can include:

  • Painful Phlebitis / Inflammation
  • Bleeding from the veins and the skin
  • Blood clots / thrombophlebitis
  • Progressive skin damage that causes dermatitis rash or darkening pigment changes
  • Skin infections / cellulitis
  • Skin ulcers or wounds (referred to as venous stasis ulcers)
  • Leg swelling or asymmetry

Spider Veins

Spider veins often come in clusters, are thin, and often purple or red in color. They are often hereditary and are caused by increased pressure within the veins, weak vein walls, and weak vein valves. They are usually not a health concern, but can sometime cause focal symtoms of discomfort.  They more often develop in women as a results of a suspected hormonal component.  They can be successfully treated in order to improve the cosmetic appearance of the skin. The treatment results often last a long time. But unfortunately other spider veins may often continue to develop due to the genetic propensity within the skin.
