What are spider and varicose veins? And, what causes them to form?
Leg vein conditions such as spider veins and varicose veins may be unsightly and annoying, but they rarely pose a serious health threat. Spider and varicose veins are inherited (genetic), weaknesses in the vein wall.-
Hormones, pregnancy, leg injuries, abdominal straining, and occupations that require standing, all contribute to the development of spider and varicose veins, as we age. However, there are ways to prevent varicose and spider veins from worsening; in order to boost blood circulation in the body, daily exercise, and avoiding sitting or standing for a long period of time are some of the easiest ways to aid. Lastly, for existing leg vein conditions we have sclerotherapy treatment that can effectively treat collapsed veins. Speak to our Papillon Team for more on sclerotherapy with your consultation visit!
