What is Vein Disease

Varicose Vein Diagnosis & Treatment

Vein Treatment in Colorado

Varicose veins are primarily caused by faulty valves in the superficial veins located in the lower extremities. When these valves fail to function properly the blood flow moves the wrong direction increasing the load on the surface veins near the skin. These surface veins cannot compensate for this increase in volume causing the veins to bulge and twist like a knotted rope, often appearing dark purple or blue, requiring vein treatment.
