4 Tips for Fighting Spider Veins

Last updated 7 years ago

When you develop unsightly spider veins, it can make you feel self-conscious and embarrassed to expose the afflicted area.  Fortunately there are many ways to fight spider veins before you are forced to deal with their removal.  Here are four tips for preventing these unpleasant and unhealthy veins from appearing on your skin.

1.       Maintain a Healthy Weight

Spider veins are often the result of rapid changes in weight.  If you gain weight very quickly, the extra stress on your circulatory system could result in spider veins.  Eat a healthy diet to keep your weight stable.

2.       Exercise Regularly
Not having enough physical activity can also allow the blood in your legs to pool and form spider veins.  Those with a sedentary lifestyle or jobs that encourage sitting for long periods of time should especially be concerned with increasing physical activity and maintaining the proper weight.  

3.       Beware of Hormonal Changes

Hormonal changes in your body can lead to the development of spider veins.  Some of these changes are difficult to avoid, as they correspond with puberty, pregnancy, and menopause.  However, the possibility of spider veins is something to be aware of before undergoing hormone therapy or starting medications like oral contraceptives.

4.       Seek Treatment

You can try to avoid them, but once they appear the best way to fight spider veins is with their removal.  Spider vein removal is a quick and easy process that is routinely performed in a medical spa.  The spa will use a laser to heat unwanted vessels and destroy them.  The removal of spider veins with a laser will allow you to see immediate results.
