Why do I have Varicose Veins?

At Ashbury Cosmetics located in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast, we have many patients who are unhappy with their varicose veins and wonder how they got them in the first place…

The biggest contributing factor to the development of varicose veins is family history. 70% of people who have varicose veins will also have a close relative that suffers from the unsightly affliction also. This is because weak walled valves and veins are inherited, and during your lifetime these veins enlarge- creating the unwanted varicose veins.

Due to hormonal differences and the changes that occur during pregnancy, women are five times more likely to develop varicose veins than men

In addition to genetic and hormonal factors, there are also certain lifestyle choices that can influence the development of varicose veins. These factors include:

  • Jobs that require long periods of standing
  • Obesity
  • Lack of exercise
  • Multiple pregnancies

At our cosmetic clinics based in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast, we have a range of treatments that can be used to reduce or remove unsightly varicose veins
