Varicose Veins Q & A

What are varicose veins?

Your vascular system is made up of arteries and veins that carry blood to and from your heart. While most veins are not visible, you may notice that some of your veins seem visibly enlarged or swollen. If this is the case, you may have varicose veins

Varicose veins are veins that have become swollen and twisted. They’re often visible beneath the skin and may be dark blue or purple. While varicose veins can develop on any part of the body, they’re most common in the lower legs.

What causes varicose veins?

Varicose veins develop when your blood doesn’t flow properly from one part of your body to another. The veins in your body have special valves which keep blood flowing in the right direction. When these valves aren’t working effectively, blood can pool in one area.

Some risk factors for varicose veins include:

  • Pregnancy
  • Obesity
  • Being older
  • Being female
  • Family history

Varicose veins can develop when there is too much pressure on your legs or abdomen. While obesity and pregnancy are two of the most common risk factors, you can also develop varicose veins if you spend a lot of time on your feet.

What treatments are available for varicose veins?

In many cases, varicose veins are not harmful and don’t need medical treatment. You may choose to seek treatment for cosmetic reasons or to relieve pain and swelling caused by varicose veins.

Asira Medical offers the following treatments for varicose veins:

  • Sclerotherapy
  • Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) laser treatment
  • Radiofrequency ablation

These advanced treatments require no surgery or anesthesia. You can receive your treatment in Dr. Grover’s office and return home the same day. Most patients report minimal pain and swelling, and many can return to their normal activities right away.
