When you see those ropey, bulging varicose veins on someone’s legs, you can’t help but wince.
You might also wonder – why aren’t they doing something about it?
Well, there can be many reasons.
In the U.S, it’s estimated that up to 55% of women and up to 45% of men suffer from some kind of problem with their veins.
Varicose veins affect around half of those aged 50 years and over.
Varicose veins tend to develop as we age.
This is usually due to the natural breakdown of the body’s fibers, including elasticity.
Inflammation can also speed up the process. Varicose veins are also more common in women – including pregnant women – due to hormonal imbalances.
Treatment for these unsightly veins usually involves expensive surgical procedures, prescription creams and/or lasers.
Unfortunately, these treatments don’t always work – which means you’ve lost a lot of money AND you still have your varicose veins!
