As we age our bodies begin to break down and change. Varicose veins are a common side effect of aging. The efficiency of bodily functions is reduced with time, including the structural integrity of vein walls. In a healthy vascular system, oxygen depleted blood is pumped to the heart (via veins), fighting gravity, before returning to the body through arteries, then repeating the process. When vein walls weaken (because of age, heredity, hormones or weight related issues), the veins become twisted and the small one-way valves within each vein malfunction as a consequence. Blood will then pool in these veins, leading to swelling and the formation of varicose veins.
Fortunately, medical advancements such as Endovenous Laser Treatment and other minimally invasive procedures have transformed varicose vein treatment from an invasive surgical procedure to a quick, safe and pain-free procedure with virtually no recovery time.
One in two people over the age of 50 will suffer from varicose veins according to the American Vascular Association. Many of these people never seeking professional treatment. Without treatment additional risks to elderly arise, including the formation of blood clots or deep vein thrombosis.
