Most women are likely to develop small and ropy varicose veins at some point in their lives. This often makes them self-conscious about how their legs look, to an extent that they force themselves to spend their entire summer clad in long pants and stockings. It is not easy for them to bare their legs when those red and purplish veins are glaringly obvious. Let’s first understand what varicose veins mean. They are enlarged veins that are swollen and raised above the surface of the skin. They can be dark purple or blue, look twisted, and bulging. Varicose veins are commonly found on the backs of the calves or on the inside of the leg. They develop when valves in the veins that allow blood to flow toward the heart stop working properly. As a result, blood pools in the veins and causes them to get larger. Thus, it becomes vital for women to know the various reasons that lead to this ugly disease. The causes of varicose veins vary from person to person. The major reason for the cause of varicose veins could be due to weak or damaged valves.
