Protruding veins

What are the treatments? Are there any side effects? How long is the treatment?

Some general background before you start …

Prominent veins in the legs, are part of a medical and aesthetic problem that bothers and bothers many people.

Protruding veins in the legs indicate a medical problem that exists in the veins.

How do prominent veins form in the legs?

The cells in the human body need oxygen and energy sources in order to function properly.

The blood plays an important role and is the transfer of energy sources and oxygen, the blood flows to the cells and back into the bloodstream, towards the body cells through the arteries thanks to the pump of the heart – which circulates the blood along with oxygen and energy sources.

The blood reaches the cells through the small arteries and then through the capillaries.

The function of the capillaries (the smallest blood vessels that exist in our body and are the continuation of the small arteries), is the location of the capillaries is the transfer of oxygen and energy sources and take the waste (CO2, carbon dioxide and acids like “lactic” acid) and flow, at the other end of the capillaries. Towards the small veins, through them to larger veins that carry the “used” blood – the “dirty” blood towards the heart.

Eventually the function of the veins, to return the blood after its use to the heart, vision and kidneys, all in order to renew the blood and transfer it back to the cells in the body.

Some background ...

Why do Protruding veins form? And how does evolution relate to the process?

Many years ago, when man evolved as part of the evolutionary process, “humans” walked on four limbs, the height of the heart was equal to the height of the limbs so returning blood to the heart was simple, the heart acted as a pump and was able to raise blood from the height of the palms to the height of the chest .

With the development of man, and his ascension on the feet, caused the heart difficulty in circulating the blood.

The body was unable to flow the blood upwards – to the heart, to an almost double height with its limited suction power and needed help for the blood to rise towards the heart, against gravity

The leg muscles are the ones that come to the aid of the heart, during their activity, (during walking), the leg muscles contract and relax around the veins and “milk them”.

This allows blood to flow towards the heart like another pump pushing it upwards.

Unidirectional valves were also formed inside the veins to allow blood to flow upwards – to the heart and not downwards towards the feet.

The venous blood, blood after use, with all the waste, returns to the heart thanks to the suction power of the heart, the pushing force of the leg muscles and the direction of unidirectional valves in the inner wall of the veins in the legs.

How do prominent veins form in the legs?

Description of the process of varicose vein formation.

Protruding veins in the legs actually constitute the disease of the valves.

Valves play a key role in the proper return of blood to the heart.

Due to various reasons, the valves can be damaged, such as genetic predisposition, overweight, pregnancy, weakness of the leg muscles and work that requires prolonged standing (teacher, barber, cashier …).

During standing the blood whose function is to flow back towards the heart against gravity, “falls” towards the feet through the diseased veins, so that the damaged valves do not inhibit the fall of the blood.

These veins are called insufficient veins, they protrude above the skin surface and create the appearance of prominent veins in the legs.

Accumulation of venous blood in the lower part of the legs causes heaviness and swelling.

Also, high blood pressure is created within the diseased veins, which causes, over time, dilation of the veins that do not withstand the pressure of the blood on the walls.

The veins begin to protrude under the skin and form prominent veins in the legs.

Are Varicose Veins In The Legs A Health Problem?

Are Varicose Veins In The Legs A Health Problem?

There is no doubt that the appearance of prominent veins in the legs is an unaesthetic appearance, and more importantly – prominent veins in the legs indicate a health problem.

The venous blood that accumulates in the lower part of the legs causes swelling, (blood has volume), and heaviness (blood has weight).

The accumulation of blood causes fatigue of the legs and dysfunction of the tissue cells (muscle, fat, skin).

Due to the large amount of waste that is not emptied properly (carbon dioxide and large amounts of acids), the accumulation of waste slows down the function of the cells.

All of these cause the appearance of symptoms of: fatigue in the leg muscles, degeneration of the subcutaneous adipose tissue and slow regeneration of the skin that becomes thin skin with changes in its color, – usually there is a brown color (this phenomenon is known as “pigmentation”) and tendency in areas affected by unhealed wounds with ease.

Options for treating prominent veins in the legs

The various treatments we have helped our patients with:

Prominent veins in the legs and the accompanying symptoms, appear gradually and over the years.

Prominent venous disease in the legs without proper treatment progresses slowly.

Sometimes only prominent veins will appear on the surface of the skin without any other sign.

There are cases where appearing first, signs of fatigue or swelling before the veins in the legs protrude above the skin surface and there are even cases where, skin discoloration is the first sign.

It is important to treat the veins in the legs that are in venous insufficiency.

Insufficient venous insufficiency in the legs is caused due to improper valves, this medical problem was tested many years ago, so they tried to fix it – by replacing the valves but without success.

The therapeutic way is to remove the diseased veins or close them permanently.

In the past, the only treatment was removal of veins in the legs by surgery (stirrifying surgery or pelvic mummy).

Today there are a number of simple innovative methods that allow for easy surgery under local anesthesia and light blurring with quick and easy recovery: bioadhesive adhesion surgery, and laser vein surgery.
