Thread veins are tiny blood vessels which have become dilated so that they run close to the skin's surface. They look like fine purple or red wiggly lines. Thread veins are also known as “Spider Veins” or “Broken Veins”.
Many who develop thread veins find them embarrassing or unsightly and really wish they could do something about them. They are normally found on the legs but can also appear on the breasts, arms and even the face. They are more likely in women than in men.
Why do we get these thread veins?
Thread veins are not usually caused by any medical condition and most people who have these veins do not suffer from any serious health problems so they are not a threat in that way. Unfortunately, they are often a sign of growing older. As your body ages, the valves in your veins weaken, and blood can collect and cause your veins to enlarge and become more visible.
This is especially true of veins in the legs and ankles, which have to work against gravity to carry blood up to the heart. Hereditary also plays a part. Half of those with thread veins have relatives who also have them. They can be caused by those hormonal changes associated firstly with pregnancy and secondly with the menopause.
Are you suffering from thread or other veins because of pregnancy?
The veins of a pregnant woman are under much more pressure so that thread and other veins may appear - especially on the legs and ankles – but these may well fade a few months after giving birth. However, any subsequent pregnancies can lead to more unwanted veins. Obviously during pregnancy and when nursing afterwards, women have to be especially careful about what they use.
Fortunately, H-Varicose Veins Formula is a safe and cost effective option
to treat the appearance of thread veins.
What are some of the other reasons for thread veins?
- Too much prolonged sunlight or wind exposure. The veins close to the surface of the face can weaken and become more visible, especially on people with fair skin.
- Being overweight or obese.
- The use of certain pharmaceutical medications and...
The good news is that thread veins can be treated successfully
Some of the ways will be procedures carried out in a private clinic so there is a cost involved. These include:
The most common type of non-surgical intervention for thread veins is laser treatment which works by firing a laser at the veins affected causing the veins to shut down and disintegrate. Treatment time is usually between 5 and 20 minutes and several sessions are required to ensure a successful removal.

What can you do to help prevent thread veins in the first place?
- Build up connective tissue and prevent (or shrink existing veins) by taking 2 to 3 grams of vitamin C and 400 to 800 IU of vitamin E daily.
Take up yoga which is an effective protocol for preventing and treating all types of veins.The most effective posture is sarvangasana (the shoulder stand) where the legs are inverted and the pressure of gravity is reversed so that the blood and the lymph drain from the lower extremities back to the heart, reducing the pressure of the pooled blood in the veins. Ideally, this pose should be carried out once a day with a holding time of 3 to 5 minutes.
- Avoid sitting or standing for long periods. If you have to as part of your job, walk around as often as possible.
- Spider veins can be caused by poor blood flow and circulation so avoid crossing your legs when you sit at home or work because this interrupts the blood flow from your heart to your legs, which can lead to vein walls weakening and the appearance of thread veins. When sitting, elevate your feet slightly above your heart to improve circulation and help regulate the blood flow in your veins and reduce swelling in your ankles and calves.
- Avoid wearing high heels as these put extra pressure on your legs and can restrict the flow of blood from your heart to your legs, causing the limited circulation that can cause thread veins to appear.
- Not always very popular but wearing low-grade compression hose (available at most drug stores or health stores) will help prevent thread veins by stimulating the blood vessels and improving circulation, making the legs less swollen and achy and preventing the poor circulation that often causes thread veins.
- We all know the importance of natural sunlight for our health but use a natural sunscreen or cover up with shady hats and clothing if you are going to be in the sun for long periods as this can help prevent thread veins from appearing on your legs, calves and ankles as well as your face.
- Maintain a healthy body weight to reduce excess stress on your feet and blood vessels. Ditch the processed salt and change to natural salt and include plenty of fiber in your diet to prevent constipation – another cause of pressure leading to veins. Avoid all snacks and processed foods and change to a diet high in fresh fruits and vegetables, good fats, free range eggs and poultry and meat and dairy products from grass fed cattle.

While not a direct threat to your health (as varicose veins can be), thread veins can be a threat to your self esteem, perhaps preventing you from feeling good about yourself so it makes sense to start any treatment as quickly as possible.
