What Causes Spider and Varicose Veins?
Smooth blood circulation heavily relies on one-way valves in blood vessels, ensuring a consistent flow toward the heart. Unfortunately, extended periods of sitting or standing can disrupt this balance by causing blood to pool in the veins of the legs. Consequently, the pressure within the veins increases, leading to their stretching and compromising the functionality of the valves. This impaired flow control eventually culminates in spider and varicose veins forming. Furthermore, the weakening of vein walls and valves amplifies the pressure, exacerbating the development of these vein-related issues.
