Who Gets Spider Veins And Why?
This is a question we often get asked here at Sthetix Clinic in Liverpool, and it is one that doesn’t have just one simple answer.
The more professional term for the appearance of spider veins is “venous insufficiency” and is when our veins get bigger due to a backup of blood, which causes them to become varicose veins in more serious cases. But this is not the only thing that can cause spider veins. They can also be caused due to certain injuries, sun exposure and hormone changes.
Spider Veins most commonly appear in the elderly due to weakening in vein valves over time, the overweight and obese due to the pressure put on the veins, and those who are pregnant as there is a lot of blood in the body during this time and this causes veins to enlarge.
Home Remedies To Get Rid Of Thread Veins
Whilst there are claims being made towards many home remedies, there are no guarantees that they will have any effect on the appearance of your thread veins whatsoever.
These include, but are not limited to:
- Eating oranges as vitamin C strengthens veins.
- Using an apple cider vinegar compress to reduce the swelling and improve circulation.
- A massage of mustard oil to strengthen vein valves.
- Eating guavas as vitamin C strengthens veins and vitamin K improves blood-flow.
- Using a castor oil compress to reduce swelling and itching.
Get Rid Of Spider Capillaries
In order to really get rid of spider veins once and for all, there is a treatment available that is proven to produce real results. Laser treatment for spider veins uses light technology to break down the veins using small bursts in order to avoid damaging the skin. This can greatly reduce the appearance of unsightly spider veins by eliminating them completely, and is a great alternative to the common sclerotherapy or any surgical type of treatment.
