Veins have one-way valves that help push blood back towards your heart against the force of gravity when you are standing or sitting. When the valves stop functioning properly, blood pools in the veins within the leg. As the blood pools, the veins dilate resulting in visible varicose veins and symptoms.
Aging: As you age, your veins grow weaker and more susceptible to vein disease.
Heredity: Genetics is the number one contributing factor for developing vein disease.
Obesity: Anything that puts excessive pressure on the veins, such as obesity, can cause vein disease.
Gender: Women are more likely to develop vein disease than men.
Lifestyle: Sitting or standing for long periods of time can cause varicose veins.
Pregnancy: Pregnancy increases your risk for developing varicose veins.
