Life Changes: 2 Occasions to Watch for Varicose Veins

Varicose Veins Treatment Houston, TX“I love having large, red and purple veins that run up and down my legs,” said no-one ever. Varicose veins are enough to make you want to wear pants in 100-degree weather and never expose a square inch of your skin. Caused primarily by weakened valves in your legs and near your knees, these veins can restrict the blood movement to and from your legs. Although they are primarily genetic, there are a few other occasions to be wary of and to watch for these veins. Read on to learn more.

Too Much Walking or Sitting

Are you the type of person who is always up and walking around? Or do you live a more sedentary lifestyle where you spend most of your days working at a desk? Whether you spend a lot of time on your feet or sitting down, you may be more prone to developing varicose veins. Although varicose veins aren’t necessarily caused by these activities, they can certainly be exacerbated by them.


Pregnancy can do just about every weird thing imaginable to your body— including varicose veins. During your pregnancy, there is so much blood flow all around your body. This sometimes can result in the opposite problem, leaving you full of varicose veins. Luckily, after you deliver your baby, your varicose veins should subside (as should the rest of your pregnancy symptoms).

Varicose veins can be painful, uncomfortable, and make you feel self-conscious. If you walk a lot, sit a lot, or are pregnant, you may be more prone to getting varicose veins. To learn more about varicose veins and treatment, contact Vein Center Houston today or call 713.349.8346 (VEIN) to schedule an appointment.
