Dr. Mark Zuzga, D.O. of West Florida Vein Center Speaks Out

“Am I a Good Candidate for Vein Treatment?” Dr. Mark Zuzga, D.O. of West Florida Vein Center Speaks OutIf you have noticed veins in your legs becoming visible over time creating small blue, purple, or reddish-wavy lines in your legs you are potentially a candidate for Vein Therapy.

The development of spider veins and varicose veins is caused by a condition known as vein disease. This condition occurs when the walls of veins become weak due to various factors including genetics and lifestyle. As these walls deteriorate, they become more elastic, which allows blood to flow more freely. However, it can also cause them to expand, twist, and even leak.

This condition can cause various symptoms such as fatigue, aching, odd sensations, and itching. It can also keep you up at night and cause you to feel extra exhausted after a long day at work.

Varying visual effects can be caused by the appearance of different types of veins. For instance, small spider veins can be barely visible. On the other hand, thick and deep veins can mar the surface of the skin and create dark purple bumpy streaks.

When it comes to treating varicose veins, it is important that you seek the help of a vein specialist as soon as possible. This is because the condition usually worsens over time.
