Welcome to Freehold Vein Specialists, where we provide advanced treatments for spider and varicose veins in Freehold, NJ.
What Causes Spider and Varicose Veins?
The circulation of blood depends on specialized one-way valves within blood vessels, enabling a smooth flow to the heart. However, extended periods of sitting or standing can lead to blood pooling in the veins of the legs, which in turn increases the pressure within them. This heightened pressure can stretch the veins, compromising the function of the valves and disrupting proper flow control. Consequently, spider and varicose veins may develop as a result. Furthermore, the weakening of vein walls and valve integrity further contributes to the elevation of pressure in the affected areas.
