Varicose veins are so common that some research shows they effect around 40 to 55 percent of the national population. Women over 50 are those most likely to have varicose veins. Not only are varicose veins unappealing to look at – the purple and bluish bulging veins appear most often on the legs – they can also cause discomfort for those women who have them.
Varicose Veins – Common causes include a lack of exercise, hormone changes caused by pregnancy or menopause, obesity, chronic heart conditions, long periods of standing or simply due to heredity.
Varicose Vein Laser Treatments at the Women’s Institute of Cosmetic & Laser Surgery
Our facility’s Syneron Laser instruments are a state-of-the-art combination of intense pulse light energy with a radio frequency that’s effective for eliminating varicose veins as well as other flaws of the skin. Women who have these types of veins may observe a number of uncomfortable symptoms along with the unsightly appearance of the varicose veins. Forming most frequently on the legs and thighs, the veins become enlarged with blood, which is the reasons why they tend to bulge. They can even become inflamed and twisted which can result in pain and in some cases an itchy feeling. Those experiencing this issue with varicose have also reported struggling with restless leg syndrome. This is a problem that causes those that have it to want to continually shift and reposition their legs to relieve painful sensations.
While this can be uncomfortable, they are relatively harmless, even though in some cases they have been known to cause some blood clotting.
