Faulty valves in the veins are blamed for varicose veins since they cause an improper flow of the blood.

Explanation-
The veins are made up of valves that control blood flow in only one direction. Once the walls of the veins are injured or stretched, more pressure is built up which will affect the veins rendering them to become weaker.

As a result, there will be backward or improper flow of blood, causing the veins to enlarge.
