This picture shows the strong correlation between genetics and varicose veins.

One of the strongest risk factors for varicose veins is a family history. We often see mothers and their daughters, fathers and sons, siblings, and some times the entire family for similar varicose vein issues. This picture demonstrates a mother and her daughter with ironically the same varicose vein pattern of distribution. Don’t want your mother’s legs? Stay on top of your vein condition and have them treated or maintenance treatment to avoid bulging varicosities.
