How Can I Prevent Spider and Varicose Veins?

Making some small changes to your daily routine can go a long way in preventing varicose and spider veins. While not all varicose and spider veins can be prevented, using these prevention techniques can save you a great deal of pain and discomfort. Of course, if you have already are experiencing varicose veins or spider veins, or experience them in the future, we highly encourage you to schedule an appointment with Dr. Rao to discuss treatment options.


Easy Practices to Help Prevent Varicose Veins and Spider Veins:

-Use sunscreen on your face and legs to protect your skin, limiting the chances of spider veins in those areas.

-Exercise, exercise, exercise! While it is important to exercise your entire body, focusing on activities that exercise your legs such as walking and running will improve your leg and vein strength, as well as circulation. This is a great way to help prevent unwanted varicose and spider veins, as well as stay healthy!

-Do not sit or stand for extended periods of time. If you find yourself sitting for long periods of time, try to remember to stand up and walk around every 30-45 minutes. If you are more inclined to be standing for long periods of time, try to shift your weight from one leg to another every few minutes.

-Avoid wearing tight clothing that constricts your waist, groin, or legs.


These prevention methods do not guarantee you will never experience varicose veins or spider veins, but they do improve your chances of avoiding them and can lessen your pain or discomfort of existing veins.
