CAUSES OF VARICOSE, SPIDER AND RETICULAR VEIN CONDITIONS

LET US HELP YOU DECIDE WHICH PROCEDURE IS BEST FOR YOU

Venous Insufficiency may be caused by some form of blockage in the vein and/or leaking of the blood valve. Varicose veins can be caused by malfunction or failure of blood valves.

Some contributors to the development of venous disorders, such as varicose and spider veins, include:

  • Gender – Women are more likely to develop veins and related vein disorders due to certain hormones. The female hormones affect blood volume and flow.
  • Pregnancy – During pregnancy, blood volume blood increases. This increase can greatly contribute to the widening and enlargement of veins. This widening is a direct cause of varicose and spider veins development.
  • Genetics / Heredity – People have the ability to genetically inherit the increased risks of varicose and spider vein development.
  • Aging – Throughout a person’s life, the vein wall weakens. This weakening can directly cause the vein’s valves to fail. This malfunction of the vein’s blood valves is a major contributor to the development of vein disorders.
  • Obesity – Weight gain can cause higher pressure and strain on the body’s blood vessels. This rise in pressure can directly cause or add to preexisting developments of spider and varicose veins.
  • Excessive Standing / Sitting – Any form of extended junctures sitting or standing can directly cause pooling of blood inside the veins. This blood pooling can cause the development of spider and varicose veins.
