Varicose and Spider Veins - More Than Just Unsightly!

For many, varicose veins and spider veins are bothersome from a cosmetic standpoint. Let's be honest, no one wants to see their once smooth legs develop bulging veins or blue and red markings. They are hard to cover and make wearing shorts, skirts and dresses embarrassing. However, varicose veins and spider veins are more than just unsightly; they are one of the first indicators of vein disease and may indicate a critical blockage in deeper veins, a condition called deep vein thrombosis, which can be life threatening. Make 2010 the year you improve your health and your legs. Learn more about vein disease and take the next step to better looking legs!

What are the Symptons of Vein Disease?

One of the first indicators of vein disease is the visual appearance of varicose veins and spider veins. Many patients also report feeling pain (an aching or cramping feeling), heaviness / tiredness, burning or tingling sensations, swelling / throbbing and / or tender areas around the veins. When these symptoms are left untreated, vein disease progresses and more serious complications can occur. Do you or a loved one have symptoms of vein disease?

How Do I Prevent Vein Disease?

It is reported that varicose veins affect an estimated 40 percent of women and 25 percent of men. While there are currently no known methods of preventing vein disease, anyone at risk of developing varicose veins can take several sensible and conservative self-care steps to prevent these painful bulges.
