There are many lifestyle changes you can make in your life to protect yourself from spider veins. These tips can even treat them and keep you healthy.

And since spider veins aren’t as serious as varicose veins, home remedies are effective, you can try these tips:

  1. Daily Exercises

Spider veins can happen to you when your body can’t circulate blood especially in legs, which means improving your blood circulation can easily eliminate your vein problems.

To do this you can try some low impact exercises like walking or swimming.

Since these two exercises are used by those who want to improve their blood circulation.

  1. Quit Smoking

Smoking is the leading cause of spider veins on face, because smoking restricts your vessels and veins from pumping blood. This increases the chances of blood clots and vein damages.

Therefore, if you are a smoker then immediately quit it and if someone smokes near you then stay away from them.

  1. Protect Your Skin From Sun

Harsh ultraviolet (UV) rays are also a common cause of spider veins on your face, because it damages your veins and vessels.

So if you are going out on a sunny day then make sure to wear sunscreen or hats to protect yourself.

  1. Massage

There are some type of massages then can relax your veins and help you improve your blood circulation.

You can try these massages daily for better results but if you have any doubts related to them then make sure to ask your doctor.

You can massage your legs on your own but if it’s hard or you can’t do it then you can try hiring a massage therapist since it’s their job, so they properly know what kind of massages are best for you.

If the vein is a larger varicose vein, the laser itself can be inserted inside the vein via a catheter. This allows a more direct application of the photon energy on the area of concern, lowering the risk of side-effects to the surrounding tissue.
