Dear Valued Patients: As of June 1st, 2021 our COVINGTON location will be moving to the following address:  4080 Lonesome Road Ste. A Mandeville, LA 70448

Causes

Spider veins, varicose veins, and a number of other related conditions are caused by a vein’s inability to successfully transport blood to the heart. A healthy vein uses a series of one-way valves to move blood against the force of gravity. Properly functioning valves fall closed when the muscles around them relax, preventing blood from flowing downwards. However, veins may become damaged, allowing blood to leak into the vessel below. This backflow can stretch out the vein wall, allowing the vessel to become varicose and bulge outward.

There are a number of different factors that can contribute to vein disease. Age and sex both have a significant part to play. Age can cause wear and tear on the circulatory system that may lead to venous insufficiency. Therefore, patients are more likely to experience vein disease as they grow older. Women are more likely to have vein issues than men. It is theorized that hormonal changes that take place during puberty, pregnancy, and menopause put women at a higher risk.

Vein specialists in New Orleans also cite lifestyle factors as a cause for vein disease. Living a sedentary lifestyle deprives a person’s veins of the regular muscle movement they need to move blood effectively. Being overweight or obese puts excess strain on the veins, increasing the risk of damage and decreasing their efficiency. Even something as simple as having an occupation that requires standing for long periods of time can lead to vein disease. Fortunately, there are a wide variety of New Orleans vein treatments available from La Bella Vita Laser and Vein Center to help address the problems associated with vein disease. We’d love to speak with you more about how we can help: get in touch with us today to learn more.
