Varicose Veins Treatment at Miami Vein Institute

Varicose veins are not just a cosmetic concern but a sign of venous insufficiency, affecting nearly 40% of women and 25% of men. These enlarged, twisted veins can lead to discomfort and limit daily activities, but with modern treatments, they no longer have to impact your quality of life.

Causes of Varicose Veins

Varicose veins develop when veins in the legs are unable to efficiently return blood to the heart, causing blood to pool and veins to enlarge. Several factors contribute to this condition:

  • Genetics: A family history of varicose veins increases your risk.
  • Age: The risk increases as you age, due to wear and tear on vein valves.
  • Gender: Women are more likely to develop varicose veins due to hormonal changes.
  • Pregnancy: Increased blood volume and hormonal changes during pregnancy can lead to varicose veins.
  • Sedentary Lifestyle: Lack of movement can worsen vein function.
  • Obesity: Excess weight puts additional pressure on your veins.
  • Standing or Sitting for Long Periods: This can impair blood flow.

Symptoms of Varicose Veins

  • Symptoms vary but often include:

    • Visible Veins: Bulging, twisted veins that are clearly visible under the skin.
    • Discomfort: Aching, heavy, or sore legs, especially after standing or sitting for extended periods.
    • Swelling: Swelling in the feet and ankles.
    • Itching: Around one or more of your veins.
    • Color Changes: Skin discoloration around the affected veins.
