What are Varicose Veins on the Legs?
Have you started to notice that your veins are popping up on your thighs and calves or have darkened in color and are now visible under the skin? Bulging blue or purplish veins are a common condition called varicose veins. Varicose veins, or raised and swollen veins, occur when the blood in your body is not being circulated correctly and overfills the certain veins in your body. While varicose veins are commonly found on the legs, they can also affect the pelvis and testicles. Patients who have varicose veins also report experiencing heaviness, discoloration, and sometimes ulcers on the legs as well.
How Much Does Varicose Vein Treatment Cost?
The cost of your varicose vein treatment will vary depending on the type of treatment you receive, the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results, and your health insurance coverage. To get a better idea of how much your varicose vein treatment will cost, we encourage you to come in for a private consultation with one of our doctors.
What Causes Varicose Veins on the Legs?
Varicose veins appear when the veins in your body stop functioning properly. Typically, veins work on a one-way system using valves to keep the blood from flowing back in the wrong direction. When these valves fail, the veins pool with blood and cause a bulging appearance and discomfort. While varicose veins typically affect older patients whose bodies are naturally going through changes, other patients may also experience varicose veins if they are pregnant, are in their first stages of menopause, are obese, or have a family history of vein disorders.
