There was that childhood song about the itsy bitsy spider that we all sang and added hand motions to entertain our children. We all have read the famous book about Charlotte and her infamous web. These are the positive spins that we have put on the spider. Unfortunately people that have spider veins are not singing songs or raving about the special spider features.
Spider veins are similar to varicose veins but are smaller in size. They vary in color- red, blue or even purple. Spider veins were named purely on their appearance- a random assortment of jagged lines connected to one another resembling a spider web.
Spider veins can be found on the legs or on the face.
So what causes them to appear?
The older we get, the more likely they are to occur. As you “age” the valves in your veins weaken and may not be as effective. This can lead to the appearance of spider veins.
Genetics, family history, stages of life including puberty, pregnancy and later menopause can be responsible for those veins on the leg or face.
Lacking movement or exercise forces the veins to work harder to pump blood to your heart, putting undue pressure on the valves.
So clearly the sight of the spider vein can cause great displeasure. But that is not all it does- it actually can be very painful. You may be experiencing itching or burning which will surely interfere with daily living.
Being uncomfortable and unhappy with our appearance is NOT a childhood game. But there is a safe and effective method that might just leave you singing…
