Oct. 4, 2012 - PRLog -- An estimated 25 million people in the United States suffer from varicose veins, and many of these individuals view their condition as nothing more than a cosmetic issue. In reality, varicose veins are actually a common medical condition that can be harmful to health. Left untreated, individuals can suffer adverse consequences ranging in severity from person to person; therefore it’s important to have a physician treat your varicose veins in Beverly Hills at the first signs of trouble.

Varicose veins occur deep in the muscles of the legs and thighs and appear above the surface of the skin in a bulging, twisted formation.  This happens when the venous valves, which are responsible for creating a one-way flow of blood to the heart, weaken and allow the blood to leak backward.  The blood then pools in the vein, depleted of oxygen and nutrients, creating excess pressure and swelling. It’s these blood pools that cause the visual appearance of the blue and purple twisted chords on legs.

If left untreated, the following health problems can occur:

•   A gradual decrease in blood circulation
•   Development of sores, skin ulcers, leg rashes and other ongoing irritation
•   Blood clots can travel to the lungs, causing a life threatening pulmonary embolism
•   Red blood cell and fluid leaks into tissues causing swollen ankles, chronic inflammation and hyperpigmentation.
•   Blood clots can travel to the lungs, causing a life threatening pulmonary embolism
•   Deep vein thrombosis
With any signs of venous insufficiency, it’s important to see a physician as soon as possible to ensure that the disease doesn’t lead to more serious problems.
