With summer being just around the corner, it's time to prepare to show off your legs! However, before you trade in your jeans and long boots for cute sandals and sexy spring dresses. You might want to get rid of any leg imperfections. A common issue that’s both a concern for leg health and looks, a large population in the United States over the age of 40 deals with dysfunctional veins. This can be a simple cosmetic issue such as spider veins, or more uncomfortable and painful conditions such as varicose veins. Dysfunctional veins can cause all sorts of problems, ranging from the outward appearance of the legs to internal health issues. Getting professional vein therapy can be highly beneficial in this case, with advantages such as:

A romantic date night calls for extravagant preparations. From an elegant outfit to a perfectly coiffed hairstyle, you want every detail to be just right! On special days like these, any small detail can seemingly derail your entire plan. Varicose veins—the raised, large, and painful veins—on your legs and arms can be an unsightly addition to any date night outfit. Considered a major cosmetic issue for many people—men and women alike—varicose veins affect about 20 percent of American adults. Naturally, anyone would want to stop these bluish veins from ruining their special night. Here are some ways you can deal with varicose veins before your date night:

Spring is here, and the flora and fauna are in full bloom. For most people, the beginning of spring brings with it the promise of a great summer. That means preparing your summer wardrobe and working on your beach body. Unfortunately, for some people, painful legs and swollen veins prevent them from enjoying the season. An estimated 35% of the US population is affected by varicose veins.

Varicose veins present themselves as twisted, swollen, and enlarged veins that peak through the skin. While they might be an unsightly addition to various parts of your body, they can also prove to be the cause of great discomfort to the 20 million Americans affected by them. This condition most often manifests in the legs, causing pain, tenderness, itching, and sometimes discoloration.

When the valves within your veins weaken owing to wear and tear or hereditary reasons, they’re unable to push blood back to the heart. This inability to pump blood effectively leads to it flowing backward and pooling in your veins. As a result, your veins bulge and look unsightly in a blue-purple hue. This condition is called varicose veins. In extreme cases, the condition causes pain, swelling, and discomfort. Traditionally, surgical methods have been used to provide relief from the symptoms of varicose veins. However, conventional surgery is an invasive procedure that requires extensive downtime to recover.

Over 30 million Americans suffer from vein disease. The percentage that seeks treatment? Only 10%—translating to around 1.9 million. And this number is expected to grow in 2020. Vein diseases are becoming increasingly common because of a combination of hereditary and hormonal factors, including obesity, prolonged standing, external injuries, and liver disease, among others.

Our muscles are constantly expanding and contracting when our legs are in motion. Sudden and involuntary contractions of our muscles are known as leg cramps. Leg spasms can strike at any time—often when you least expect them. Whether your cramps are caused by exercising without warming up or carrying heavy weights, muscle cramps are often not a cause for concern.

While getting a tattoo is on every millennial's bucket list, ensuring that you’re a good candidate beforehand is essential. Not everyone can undergo the rigorous process without experiencing side effects. If you’re looking forward to getting a tattoo on your birthday or are accompanying someone close to you for one, here are some things you may want to look out for in advance:

Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is more than just the desire to move your legs occasionally. This neurological condition, that affects about 7–10 percent of Americans—causes the irresistible urge to move our legs, often accompanied by uncomfortable sensations in them. The need to move your legs is caused by an unpleasant pulling, crawling, or itching feeling deep within. People struggling with the condition often stretch, walk around, and rub the area of discomfort—but to no avail.
