The Shocking Truth About Spider Veins
BEVERLY HILLS (HH) – Spider veins are those thin red and purple web-like veins that commonly form on a person’s legs, ankles, and face — although they can show up on other parts of the body as well. Millions of Americans suffer from lowered self-confidence because of their appearance.
While they are usually harmless, spider veins can ache and burn, especially when doing anything that requires good circulation like standing for extended periods of time.
For some time now, doctors and cosmetic surgeons have been profiting off of people’s desperation to rid themselves of spider veins. But before you can begin to deal with the painful and embarrassing symptoms of these veins, there are some surprising facts you deserve to know.
Too much sun
It turns out that ultraviolet radiation can actually cause spider veins. UV rays damage your cellular structure, which weakens and dilates your blood vessels, which is why researchers have even linked too much time spent in tanning beds to these unsightly twisting and turning veins.
Your occupation can have a massive effect on the likelihood of developing spider veins. Jobs that require you to be on your feet for long periods of time are often associated with increased spider veins because of poor circulation from standing.
Hormonal changes, such as those that occur during menopause, pregnancy, and puberty, can have negative effects on the venous structure — which often results in the appearance of spider veins throughout the body. Additionally, drugs containing hormones, such as HRT drugs taken during menopause and birth-control pills, can also increase the chances of spider veins.
Men can get them too
Roughly 70-80% of all spider vein treatment patients are women. However, this stat is misleading. Most men simply don’t seek treatment, but they do experience spider veins at a similar rate. Spider veins are symptomatic of poor circulation, among other things.
The Best Solution You’ve Never Heard of
Earlier this month two prominent Beverly Hills doctors revealed a new discovery that would allow people to combat the look of embarrassing veins without any professional assistance.
It was previously thought that fixing the appearance of spider veins required surgery, or laser treatments. But with this technique, users report seeing remarkable results without having to leave home.
With a variety of supposed solutions for spider veins, it can be hard to accurately measure the efficacy of each kind, and you should always do your own research before committing to any new approach.
That being said, based on user feedback, it seems these doctors are onto something truly game-changing. If you are serious about reducing the appearance of spider veins, this could be the solution you’ve been looking for.
