Venous insufficiency is related to hormonal changes and consequently is more prevalent in the female population. In Italy, between the ages of 20 and 30 it affects 20% of women (10% of men), but above 50s the incidence increases, and it is estimated that 1 in 2 women suffer from it. If left untreated, venous insufficiency can lead to more serious conditions (capillary leakage, phlebitis, thrombus phlebitis).

More cosmetic issues, such as cellulite, water retention, and exposed capillaries, can also compromise health over time and negatively affect lifestyle leading to discomfort and inadequacy.

Therefore, it is essential to undergo periodic checkups, especially when risk factors or symptoms are present.

How to Prevent Vein and Vascular Disorders and Blemishes?

Familiarity, hormonal imbalances, unhealthy lifestyle (wrong diet, insufficient hydration, sedentary, jobs that force a lot of time standing or sitting): these are all factors that negatively affect our circulation.

Let's look at some tips that help prevent vein and vascular disorders and blemishes:

  • Follow a balanced diet.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Do sports regularly.
  • Do not smoke.
  • Avoid spending too much time sitting or standing, whether at home or at work.
  • Reduce the use of high heels, shoes and tight clothes that hinder circulation.
  • Use restraining stockings.
  • Alternate hot and cold water when showering or bathing.
  • Sleep with legs elevated by placing a pillow under the knees.
  • Limit sun exposure.
