A majority of the world population struggle with venous disease, which results in thrombosis or varicose veins or swollen legs. When you feel heavy and tired legs with a visible spider or varicose veins, it is time to look for a local vein health clinic.
How veins function?
Blood circulatory system consists of blood vessels that are divided into veins and arteries. Blood gets purified in the heart, which is pumped into the arteries and circulated. Thus each body cell gets its oxygen supply. The veins transport impure or deoxygenated blood to the heart.
Many tiny vessels called venules and capillaries called deoxygenated blood from across the body and pass it to the veins for reverse transport to your heart. The venous system is large and dense than the arterial system. In veins, blood pressure is lower than arteries. Daily 7,000 liters blood is returned to the heart, so you need to ensure
When you walk veins get squeezed, the blood gets pumped upwards against gravity and flows towards the heart. Without physical movement, muscles are unable to exert pressure preventing valves within from closing properly. Blood pools and superficial veins get dilated.

Ultrasound vein mapping
Ultrasound is used to create a vein system map. A trained medical professional will be capable to identify the areas where veins are working properly and where the issue exists.
Small and medium-sized spider and varicose veins are eliminated with an injectable solution. Depending on vein-type, solutions strength gets determined. After the solution gets injected, the vein wall cells get aggravated, inflamed and damaged. Cotton balls, tape and compression support from outside pressurize. It causes vein walls to seal and blood gets directed towards healthy veins, automatically. After a few days, the sealed vein disappears.
Endovenous laser treatment
EVL technology involves heating veins and forcing them to seal and soon disappear. A thin laser fiber has to be inserted inside the damaged vein, which means a minimally invasive painless process.
Preventive measures like daily exercise, diet changes, maintain body weight, moving actively, and avoid a long time standing or sitting, will help to enhance circulation. This will help to reduce the worsening of an existing spider or varicose vein symptoms.
