Are you one of the many people who have noticed leg or facial spider veins appearing under their skin? Don’t stress—while unsightly, these veins aren’t typically associated with any serious medical conditions. Read on to learn why you may be developing spider veins and how they can be eliminated.
Why Am I Developing Spider Veins?
Unfortunately, the appearance of spider veins is oftentimes something you can’t control—forming as a result of genetics (a history of blood clots or circulation issues that run in your family), hormonal changes or aging. Obesity, prolonged sitting or standing and medications such as contraceptive pills can play a role in the development of these trouble veins as well—and while these are all potential causes that you could change, be sure to speak with your doctor before making major lifestyle adjustments.
While you may not have complete control over all the causes of spider veins, you do have the power to remove this unsightly imperfection.
Treating Spider Veins
The treatment of spider veins could be as simple as switching medications, wearing compression stockings or making an effort to become more active. Throughout your day, try taking a break to stand up and walk around, or take a seat and prop your feet up. These changes can promote healthy blood circulation and prevent the development of more spider veins.
Spider veins usually aren’t associated with serious medical conditions—but if you notice they become uncomfortable or painful, you should see a professional. But if your veins are harmless, and lifestyle changes haven’t made a difference, there are laser treatments available to help you quickly and effectively reverse the effects of poor blood circulation.
