    responsible for returning deoxygenated blood to the heart. • These thin-walled vessels operate at lower pressure than arteries, consisting of tunica intima, tunica media, and tunica externa layers. • One-way valves in veins prevent backward blood flow, facilitating the upward movement against gravity. • Veins transport blood from capillaries back to the heart, ensuring continuous circulation. • With a larger capacity than arteries, veins accommodate a higher volume of blood.

    dilated blood vessels near the surface of the skin. • Commonly appear as red, blue, or purple web-like patterns. • Often found on the legs and face. • Caused by weakened or damaged blood vessels. • Risk factors include genetics, age, and hormonal changes. • Usually a cosmetic concern, but can cause discomfort or pain in some cases. • Treatment options include sclerotherapy, laser therapy, and lifestyle changes.
