You Need to Get Rid of That Varicose Vein, Pronto

Sep 15, 2008
You admit it - you have a problem with aging. Being young was just so much fun, though! You had lots of energy, lots of admirers, and lots of time to do fun things, since you didn't have a job. Aside from that scar you got on your knee from your time on the gymnastics team, your legs were smooth and lovely.

Well, now one of your legs has a nice, big, purple and green varicose vein. When you were younger you noticed the varicose vein that your grandmother had. You grimaced, and silently vowed that you would never let a varicose vein into your life, and onto your leg.

You have no idea why, but it seems as if the varicose vein just sort of appeared one day. Either that, or you were too busy to really notice it. Trust your husband to notice it for you. There you were one summer night, sitting next to him with your legs on his lap, and he noticed it.

Of course, your husband isn't the most tactful man on the planet, so he tossed your legs off of his lap and said "You really should have something done about that, sweetie." Thanks, it's not as if you weren't going to. So, the next stop was to the dermatologist's office, who also happens to be your brother-in-law.

He's taken care of your kids' acne and your husband's ingrown facial hair, and now it's time for you. He takes a look at it and does a lot of tsk-tsking. You tell him that it isn't your fault that the stupid vein is there. He looks at you straight in the eye and says that actually, it partially is.

Huh? He tells you that you've always been a busy woman, and it's good to keep active, but really, did you have to play tennis until right before you gave birth for each of your three children? You tell him that he's just jealous because you beat him each time he was your opponent.

He laughs, and says well, that might be partially the reason, but in all seriousness, the combined running around and the extra pressure that was put on your legs from the increased weight resulted in the circulation being slowed down - kind of like what happens when you sit too long and your leg falls asleep.

Anyway, the blood ends of being pooled in various veins - the most prominent of which for you happens to be this annoyingly visible vein. The vein can't take the strain of all this blood, so it pops up from it's normal spot on the leg, so that it can take some of the pressure off of itself. They usually start showing up in middle-aged women. Lovely, as if you didn't know how old you were getting!

Okay, so now you know what caused this vein, what can be done? Well, your brother-in-law says, you could just leave it alone if you really wanted to - it doesn't fall into the "serious" category as of yet. No, you want it gone. You can't wait for those laser treatments!
