Supplements for Spider Veins?
Q Does your vein supplement help to get rid of spider veins. Everyone talks about helping with swelling but I’m wishing it would get rid of those unsightly veins.

A Telangiectasias or angioectasias (aka spider veins) are small dilated blood vessel near the surface of the skin or mucous membranes, measuring between 0.5 and 1 millimeter in diameter. They can develop anywhere on the body but are commonly seen on the face around the nose, cheeks, and chin. They can also develop on the legs, specifically on the upper thigh, below the knee joint, and around the ankles.
Because telangectasias are often the earliest manifestation of venous disease, supplementation is warranted, especially with the use of centella asiatic a (as TTFCA), aescin (horse chestnut), troxerutin, hesperidin, and diosmin While these nutrients may inhibit the further development of spider veins, they may not deal with their most unsightly aspects. Currently there are several non-invasive techniques such as sclerotherapy to help clear them up. Laser treatments can effectively treat spider veins as well. Please see your physician.
