Spotted your first spider veins? No need to panic! You can treat spider veins. Better yet, the treatment doesn’t have to be painful, expensive or painful.
Here are the top 4 ways to treat spider veins:
Exercising on a daily basis improves the blood flow, which, in turn, lowers inflammation. Don’t worry; it doesn’t have to be anything too complicated or exhausting. Sometimes all you need is to walk for 30 minutes every day. Even more, other daily exercises that you can do include: leg lifts, calf raises, and side lunges to strengthen and stretch the veins around the legs.
Support stockings are also called compression stockings. You can wear them at home, during both day and night. They assist in alleviating the symptoms. More importantly, they improve the circulation of blood in your legs. You can choose from a wide variety of styles and intensities. Ideally, you should speak to your doctor about choosing the right pair for your needs.
The fastest and surest painful way to treat spider veins are laser treatments. Better yet, they are non-invasive and pain-free. Unlike surgery, they also require no downtime or a special regimen. You will need a few sessions to get the wanted results. Typically, the sessions are scheduled five weeks apart from each other.

A few minor lifestyle changes can make a world of difference in the appearance of spider veins. Again, it’s nothing too complicated. Here’s what you can start with:
- Don’t stand or sit for long periods without taking a break. Get up from your desk and walk a few steps or sit down for two minutes if you’ve been up and running for more than an hour.
- Avoid wearing tight clothes, especially around the thighs, waist, groin and legs.
- Avoid wearing high heels for a long period of time. Opt for lower heels to allow blood to move freely through the veins.
