About vein disease
Spider, reticular, and varicose veins appear when damaged valves allow blood to reverse flow (reflux) and pool in the veins below the skin – typically on the legs and ankles. Aging, pregnancy, hormonal changes, weight gain, and long hours spent standing can lead to the development of abnormal veins; genetics and lifestyle can also play a role in their development. These abnormal veins can result in aching, swelling, night cramps, leg fatigue, itching, and burning. In advanced disease, varicose veins can result in skin thickening and ulcerations.
