Swollen, twisted veins that can be seen just under the skin are
called varicose veins. Usually occurring in the legs, varicose
veins can form in other parts of the body. However, there
are treatments available for varicose veins.

Vein Procedure

Veins have one-way valves that help keep blood flowing toward your heart. If the valves are weak or damaged, blood can back up and pool in the veins, which causes the veins to swell, leading to varicose veins. Varicose veins are common; however, you are more at risk if you are older, are female, have obesity, don’t exercise, or have a family history of varicose veins. Exercising, losing weight, elevating your legs when resting, and not crossing them when sitting can help keep varicose veins from getting worse. Wearing loose clothing and avoiding long periods of standing can also help. If varicose veins are painful or you don’t like the way they look, Dr. Carvajal may recommend one of the following procedures to remove them.
