Spider Veins are veins that are small purple or blue veins just beneath the surface of the skin. Unlike their cousin the varicose veins, spider veins are smaller and easier to handle since they serve no real purpose other than collecting blood from just under the skin. Causes of Spider veins range from hereditary to pregnancy.
How to fade Spider veins involves several natural techniques as well as some surgical and medical procedures. First of all one must increase blood flow to the legs and face, this are the main areas that are affected by spider veins. To do this try not to stand still in one spot or at the very least do a small twitch or something to not allow the blood to pool. A good investment is a good supporting stocking to keep blood moving properly. Also a healthy diet and exercise will do wonders for the skin as well.
Next you will need to look for the extract from the Japanese pagoda tree. How to fade Spider veins can be started at least by this. This pagoda tree extract is found online or in some health supplement stores and promotes healthy blood flow throughout the body. Also a Vitamin K supplement will help to increase blood flow throughout the body as well.
For topical treatments on fading spider veins use creams that have Vitamin K. This helps to again promote circulation. Also apply witch hazel or vinegar to the site of the spider veins about three times a day, as this will also help in fading the spider veins.
The next step is to actually purchase makeup to physically cover up the spider veins. Fading spider veins can easily be done with a greenish tinted makeup, ask the employees at cosmetics for help.
The only sure fire thing to fade or remove (more of the remove part) is to have a surgical procedure done. This involves laser treatment, Sclerotherapy (which involves injecting a concentrated saline solution or detergent to reduce visibility), Radiofrequency Occlusion (where a catheter is placed into the vein and then radio signals heat and close off the vein) and actual surgery to physically remove the spider veins. Everything except for the surgery is generally an outpatient procedure and can be done in many doctor's offices. But these sessions can be expensive and most of the time not covered by health insurance.
