Varicose Veins Treatment In Florida

Varicose veins are enlarged, kinky and swollen veins found in the legs and appear blue or purple. Varicose veins happen when the valves in the veins start malfunctioning, causing your blood to flow ineffectively. People suffer from various vein conditions, and one such is spider veins. There’s a significant difference between varicose veins and spider veins, and if you are suffering from the latter one, you should seek medical help.

  • Burning sensation around the veins
  • Swollen legs
  • Pain and tenderness
  • Muscle cramps
  • Skin Discoloration

Is It Necessary to Treat Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are damaged veins that are incapable of adequately pumping the blood back to the heart. During normal circulation, arteries bring the blood from the heart to the legs. Veins then carry the blood back to the heart to refill on oxygen. However, damaged nearby muscles and venous valves prevent the blood from going up to the heart, which causes blood pooling.
