Let us talk about the causes and prevention of thread veins.
Causes of Thread Veins
Spider veins are seen on the legs and they occur when the valves inside the veins stop working in a proper way. The function of veins is to carry impure blood back to the heart from the muscles. Now, if you want to prevent blood from flowing backward, choose a one-way valve, which may close once the blood passes through the body.
The procedure of thread vein removal is needed when the valve gets damaged. It leads to a difficulty of blood flow in the right direction. Such a situation leads to a blockage and leads to a rising bulge in the veins. This makes the veins branch out and leads to thread or spider veins.
People affected with arthritis and thyroid may face spider and thread veins all over their body. Sometimes due to the increased pressure of muscular exercises and sun damage may result in spider veins.
