Spider veins are short, fine lines that appear in a map-like maze or in starburst clusters. These are veins that fail to circulate blood properly and become engorged with blood. Spider veins appear in the face, most commonly on the cheeks and nose. The medical term is telangiectasias.
Spider veins can appear at any age irrespective of gender, but women are more susceptible during pregnancy. When a face is mapped in a maze of spider worms it can become embarrassing and the sufferer will probably wish to conceal them.
A good approach to treatment of spider veins is to first tackle the circulatory system. Ensure a healthy balanced diet high in fiber and take plenty of exercise. Also drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of fluids per day so that the body remains well hydrated. There are also several nutrient supplements that boost circulation. Many of these are high in Vitamin K.
Use a topical skin care solution high in Vitamin K which improves vascular health and is effective in eliminating spider veins. There is a large choice commercially available. A good shielding lotion bonds with the outer layer of skin. In doing so it forms a protective layer that locks in skin moisture while yet allowing it to breathe.
Depending on severity, results can be seen in as little as 12 to 28 days. In most cases, however, sustained treatments will be required for between 6 and 8 weeks.
Some formulations come as a blemish remover cum skin protector. The skin is most responsive when the spider veins are fresh and first start appearing.
