Varicose veins: Healthy veins are responsible for the circulation of blood throughout the body. When they dysfunction, this can lead to the development of varicose and spider veins. This can be a problem in particular for people over 50.
Vein dysfunction occurs when the walls of the vein become weaker and retain more blood than normal. This causes enlargement along the segment of the vein. As a result of this, the valves of the vein begin to dysfunction, creating a backflow of blood that generates visibly distorted veins.
According to Vein Doctors Group, you can treat such veins. Dr Christopher Lekich has established high-resolution ultrasound imaging to discover the source of the vein dysfunction.
“There are a number of factors that can contribute to the development of abnormal veins. Genetic disposition is one of the primary influences in the development of abnormal veins. And there are also a range of lifestyle factors that can contribute to this condition including obesity, long periods of standing or sitting, immobility, aging, and leg injuries.”

Approximately 30% of the population are affected by varicose veins, with a larger proportion of females and those over 50 years of age afflicted with this condition. The hormonal changes that women experience during pregnancy and in relation to the birth control pill can contribute to the development of abnormal veins.
According to Vein Doctors Group, doctors can tailor a treatment plan specific to the patient’s needs that can provide long-term relief from venous dysfunction. Depending on your individual needs, your treatment may consist of the following minimally invasive procedures:
-Micro sclerotherapy for the treatment of minor spider veins
-Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy (UGS) for deeper veins
-Endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) treatment for larger veins that would traditionally require surgical vein stripping.
The treatments offer a range of benefits over traditional vein treatments. They have found that patients experience a lower recurrence rate, swift recovery times, and minimal discomfort when compared to traditional surgical procedures such as vein stripping.
