Causes of visible veins
Vein treatment can be for cosmetic or medical reasons. But, in general, a visible vein tries to tell you that something is wrong with your heart health. the main cause of vein problems include:
Chronic venous insufficiency
The main role of a vein is to carry blood from your body to your heart. Veins consist of valves that help push the blood against gravity and up to your heart. However, when the valves get damaged, blood may flow backward increasing the pressure in your legs. When this happens, it creates a condition known as chronic venous insufficiency.
Chronic venous obstruction
Chronic venous obstruction is the blockage of veins. It occurs when scar tissue in the vein causes damage to the valves and a backward flow of blood to the heart. The chronic venous obstruction causes visible leg veins, restless legs, neuropathy, and leg swelling.
Factors increasing your risk of developing vein problems
