Varicose Veins Treatment | Dallas Fort Worth TX | Precision VIR

Varicose Veins Treatment

Varicose veins are veins that are in the superficial compartment of the leg that have become enlarged, swollen, twisted, and/or bulging due to venous reflux disease. The visible veins can be many colors but are most commonly red, blue or flesh-toned. The bulging veins most often appear on the thighs, back of the calves, and the inside of the legs.

Pregnant women may experience varicose veins in the vaginal, pelvic and buttocks area. When these veins appear they may indicate an issue of venous reflux disease in the legs or may be a symptom of a pelvic venous issue.  At Precision VIR, our doctors will take the time to answer all of your questions related to varicose veins and vein care during pregnancy as well as how to prevent varicose veins during pregnancy and beyond.

Causes of Varicose Veins:

Varicose veinsVaricose veins are caused by malfunction and damage of the valves in veins of the lower half of the body. As a result of the damaged valves, blood flows forwards but also backwards, in the wrong direction (reflux). This reversal of flow which leads to pooling of backed-up blood, which then causes the veins to bulge, stretch and enlarge.

  • Genetics:  play a major role in the development of varicose veins.
  • Hormonal changes and pregnancy: a big factor as to why women are more prone to get varicose veins than men.
  • Age: vein and valve function may be deranged over time.
  • Weight: being overweight can increase venous pressure in the legs and lower half of the body.
  • Standing or sitting for long periods
