I think I might have spider veins. What should I do now?
If you notice symptoms of a venous condition in their lower extremities, especially if you have numerous risk factors, we recommend that you come in for a consultation. We can use non-invasive ultrasounds and a thorough physical examination to test for chronic venous insufficiency. By getting a full picture of your vein health, we can insure that we are recommending the most appropriate medical treatment. If, during the exam, an underlying venous disease is found, we will first treat the chronic condition and then take steps to address the symptoms.
On the other hand, if there is no evidence of an underlying venous disease then your superficial veins can be properly managed right here at the Advanced Vein Center.
This past summer I noticed an increase in the number of those ugly blue veins on my legs. I booked an evaluation online for the Advanced Vein Center for after our beach vacation. When I went in, they ran some painless tests and as it turns out my veins are healthy. They suggested some treatments and provided me with a lot of information to make me feel comfortable about my decision. Next summer I won’t have to hide my legs under a wrap while at the beach.

Zap Away your Spider Veins Laser/light therapy is an exciting new procedure in the field of spider vein treatment. Laser/light therapy safely uses light energy to erase painful and unsightly veins. The therapeutic method is 100% toxin-free and non-invasive, giving you the results you deserve without the risks or down-time that come with other forms of treatment. How does it work? Researchers and practitioners have been able to apply the seemingly limitless potential of lasers to the field of vein treatment. A carefully calibrated laser focuses photon energy on the unwanted blood cells in the vein. As the laser is applied to the spider veins the photons create heat energy strong enough to destroy the blood vessel but at safe enough levels to leave other tissue and structures unharmed. What are the possible risks? Like with any kind of treatment, there are some risks associated with laser therapy. While they are rare and relatively minor, they can occur.
Home Remedies For Spider Veins
Researchers have attempted to prove how chemicals contained in garlic affect health, and they have isolated promising substances in some circumstances.
Those who claim that crushed garlic applied to the skin can alleviate the symptoms of spider veins have misconstrued this preliminary research.
While garlic might add flavor to a dish, there is no scientific proof that its molecules can modify the look of your veins biochemically.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Many health blogs claim that apple cider vinegar helps remove spider veins from the body, however this isn’t true.
Apple cider vinegar is thought to aid in better blood circulation and flow.
As a result, apple cider vinegar may help to prevent spider veins from growing, but it will not make the condition go away.
Witch hazel is an astringent, which means it can clean your skin, calm redness, and shrink your pores for a short period of time.
It’s a popular facial skincare treatment at home. While the chilly liquid may provide temporary relief, it is ineffective for decreasing spider veins because it has no effect underneath the skin’s top layers.
The tannins in witch hazel, in fact, can make skin more sensitive over time, thereby aggravating irritation and dryness.
Some basic activities can help to promote normal blood flow. Adequate blood flow allows the body to push trapped blood through the veins. People with low blood pressure should exercise and workout on a daily basis.
Low-impact activities might help to fill the calves and drive blood into veins. Swimming is an excellent way to keep your heart rate up. Walking, cycling, and yoga are all excellent and simple ways to keep your pulse and blood flow in check.
Because massage is an efficient approach to increase healthy blood circulation, it is claimed to help with spider veins. This treatment can also help with the pain and swelling that spider veins can cause.
