What are the causes of lower limb varicose veins?

Varicose veins of lower extremities is a problem faced by more and more people. It most often affects women who work in one position or suffer from constipation. What is the cause of varicose veins and how to fight them when they appear?

Varicose veins may appear for genetic reasons. Very often daughters of mothers who fought with varicose veins, also have varicose veins. Equally often varicose veins are formed due to the lifestyle. Usually the culprit is sitting or standing work and hard physical work. In the case of an occupation that requires many hours of standing or sitting, the blood flow in the lower extremities is impaired, which leads to increased venous pressure and the formation of varicose veins. However, hard work physically causes strong work of abdominal muscles and diaphragm, which causes that high intraabdominal pressure is transferred to the veins, also leading to the appearance of varicose veins. The same is true for people suffering from constipation.

How to get rid of varicose veins?

Nowadays... treatment of varicose veins is performed in a very effective and minimally invasive way, using laser or sclerotherapy. This type of treatment is performed by modern clinics of aesthetic medicine, located in every major city.

What does modern aesthetic medicine offer us?

More and more people appreciate aesthetic medicine. Many of them are people suffering from varicose veins, which if not for aesthetic medicine, they would have to decide to invasive surgical removal of vessels, which not only gives a greater risk of complications, but above all is less comfortable for the patient.
