Blood in the legs normally flows towards the heart. The direction of flow is maintained by valves in the veins which present the blood from flowing backwards. If the valves do not close properly blood is allowed to flow backwards. The blood then “pools” in the veins causing added pressure that stretches the walls of the veins , enlarging them. These veins are known as Varicose Veins.
This backward flow of blood is called Venous Insufficiency.
Vein disease can take many different forms depending on its progression. It is important to understand the causes, symptom, signs, prevention and treatment available to you.

Spider veins are tiny red or purple dilated blood vessels. They are smaller than varicose veins and commonly occur in the legs but can also be found on other areas of the body such as the face.
Varicose veins generally appear as twisted, bulging rope-like cords on the legs. They are caused by the failure of valves in the veins that leads to added pressure and stretching of the veins along with pooling of the blood.
Venous skin changes are generally present below the knees and appear a brownish color and can also change the texture of the skin. Dry skin can also occur in many cases.
Venous ulcers are generally seen after the onset of skin changes. Venous ulcers are caused by a breakdown of the skin and tissues overlying and surrounding diseased veins
