FAQs

Increased blood pressure in the veins causes varicose veins. Varicose veins develop in the veins near the skin’s surface (superficial). One-way valves in the veins direct blood flow towards the heart. Blood can gather in the veins if the valves become weaker or broken.

Reticular veins are veins that are arranged in a reticular pattern. Reticular veins are little blue or green dilated veins that appear 1 mm to 3 mm in diameter in areas like the legs and face. These veins are smaller than varicose veins but larger than spider veins, with a flatter, less twisted appearance than varicose veins.

Treatment options for spider veins if you have symptoms or are concerned about their appearance include:

  • Sclerotherapy. In this surgery, your doctor injects a substance into the veins that scars and closes them, causing blood to reroute through healthy veins.
  • Endovenous laser ablation is a type of endovenous laser ablation.

Poor blood circulation from the legs, such as venous insufficiency, causes venous skin ulcers. One-way valves in your veins keep blood flowing toward your heart. The valves are compromised in venous insufficiency, and blood backs up and pools in the vein.

Although vulvar varicose veins can swell, they are unlikely to burst and bleed. They can be aggravated by certain activities, such as standing for lengthy periods of time or exercising. These veins, on the other hand, rarely haemorrhage or break open.
