vein removal

what is the purpose of vein removal procedure?

Varicose veins and spider veins can be caused by damaged veins. They develop when the tiny, one-way valves within the veins become weaker. These valves push blood back towards our heart in healthy veins. These valves can become weaker and blood flows backward, accumulating in the vein. The vein walls are put under pressure by the extra blood.

The vein walls will bulge and weaken under constant pressure. We will eventually see a varicose vein or spider vein.

These veins are more common in some people than others. You are more likely to develop them if you have relatives with them. They are common in people who sit or stand for extended periods of time most days of the year. These veins are also more common as we age and become pregnant.

Sunlight, hormonal changes, or injury can also cause spider veins.
