While varicose and spider veins and the appearance of visible leg veins are associated with the older population the truth is you can age and never have a single vein appear if your legs and circulatory system stay healthy.

It is not a given that as we grow older veins will begin to appear. In fact, it isn’t age that is the cause at all, but merely a contributing factor. Varicose veins can start in the teen years, though most cases tend to be the mid-40s and above and tend to increase in later years.  Visible veins are due to venous insufficiency. Insufficient blood flow can be caused by damaged areas of the vein. Vein breakdown can be due to disease, chronic dehydration, trauma to an area, or some other genetic factors.

If you are beginning to see visible little purple, blue, or red veins, are experiencing heavy, painful, achy legs, or even developing twitching legs, or ulcerations, it is time to be examined by a Vein Specialist.

Thanks to modern treatments varicose veins do not have to be an ongoing painful or embarrassing problem.
