The desire to look healthy and young is a lifelong journey, and many people take steps at an early age to ensure that youthful appearance is preserved. Skin treatments and facials are especially concerned with retaining firmness and elasticity in order to reduce wrinkles and sagging. While so many people focus on surface solutions to ensure the appearance of wellbeing, individuals do not always consider the fact that internal body tissue may require the same attention.
This can be particularly true when it comes to varicose veins. While they are obviously apparent from a visual standpoint, corrective measures need to be undertaken within the body. Much of this is a function of how varicosities manifest, and what the internal cause of the external expression actually is.
The Idea Of Elasticity
The human body has an amazing ability to adapt, and this applies to metabolic and circulatory changes, as well as how skin and tissue cells can stretch to accommodate changes in weight and body shape. Since the body is made up of all the same basic cells that have just differentiated to perform specialized functions, considering that blood vessels will also stretch to adapt for different variances in circulation can help in understanding how spider veins and varicosities occur.
A good analogy is to consider a pair of panty hose. When they are brand new, they stretch to fit the legs perfectly. When care is taken to ensure that they stay in good condition, the panty hose will retain their elasticity for a longer period of time. However, even pairs that have been gently hand washed and air dried will still start to sag and lose their elasticity over time. Your blood vessels can be considered in a similar fashion, and when the stretch factor begins to give, varicose veins will start to show.
From The Inside Out
The visible factors of varicose veins can be a combination of actually seeing how much the blood vessels are over-stretched, or seeing where blood is pooling in the capillaries because the veins cannot accommodate proper circulation. The first aspect is generally the bulging that is apparent under the surface of the skin, while the second accounts for the discoloration. Practices such as massage can help the alleviate some of the issues of varicose veins, as the manipulation can stimulate circulation and can give the vessels a work out that may regain some elasticity.
Usually, when a varicosity is to the point of distention, further measures will also be necessary. Sutton Place Laser Vein Care has a number of procedures that we use on small spider veins and larger varicose veins, which offer corrective measures by addressing the stretching that has happened. Our non-surgical and minimally invasive procedures help to tighten the vessels and reduce distention. This addresses both the discoloration and the bulging, by helping the veins return to their more youthful state.
