What Lifestyle Factors Can Cause Varicose Veins to Form on the Body?

Featured Image

Vascular issues are all too common, which is why we devote ourselves to helping our patients enjoy improved health and daily comfort.

One frustrating condition is known as varicose veins and can be caused by numerous lifestyle factors, including overall health and chronic conditions like high blood pressure. And as the vein walls or valves weaken, they're no longer able to do their job. As a result, blood pools in the veins and causes swelling and other negative consequences. As a result, the veins become visible through the skin and can decrease patients' self-image and confidence.

More importantly, leaving this condition untreated can lead to potentially life-threatening considerations, such as the formation of blood clots. Yet, you can improve your aesthetics, outcome, and future health by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Matthew Lynch at Lynch Vein & Aesthetics in Peoria, AZ.

Which lifestyle factors can cause varicose veins to form on the body?

Numerous factors can cause varicose and spider veins to form on the body. As a major component of the circulatory system, one of the primary causes that can accelerate varicose vein formation is blood pressure. The veins that become so visible, unseemly, and potentially distressing are located superficially (or close to the skin's surface), and they can be made more apparent by heightened blood pressure.

Additionally, veins use a system of valves to ensure that blood travels the correct way to the heart and does not back up, stagnate, or slosh about. Yet these valves can become damaged and unable to do their job properly. The result is that blood cannot be efficiently conveyed back to the heart and begins pooling in the superficial veins, causing them to bulge and show through the skin.

Why is it so important to seek professional treatment for varicose veins?

While the overall health impact of varicose veins may not always be initially or seriously adverse, seeking timely treatment in Peoria is necessary to prevent the situation from deteriorating.

Because if patients leave this condition untreated, or neglect to find the root cause of their ailment, they risk the development of inflammation in the veins or, vitally, the formation of blood clots, which can lead to life-threatening conditions or events.

So, we're eager to offer you personalized treatment strategies that utilize the clinically backed effectiveness of one or multiple modalities. These include sclerotherapy, surface laser-based techniques, ultrasound-guided therapies, and more. By getting to the root of your issues and formulating a tailored therapeutic plan just for you, we can help you enjoy improved aesthetics and better overall health for years to come.
