    Unhappy Spider Veins

    Hello everyone! I am not a happy camper. Of course as you know it's bikini season. Time to whip out the shorts and skirts and show 'em what you got! Hard to do when you have spider veins. I have in the just the past two years started getting spider veins and I can't stand it. To be honest I don't want to do the surgical thing but I was wonder if someone out there knew of any other solutions. I've heard about Vita K and was wondering if anyone else had and if so what were the results. Any other suggestions ladies? Thanx for listening!

    You should seek a dermatologist or plastic surgeon to get sclerotherapy.
    Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical procedure that eliminates spider veins by injecting a sclerosant that permanently removes the veins.

    I don't know how to get rid of them .... but I too would sure like to know. But maybe if you tan, or use a self tanner, it might dimish the appearance. I personally am pretty white, and am trying to find a good tanner cuz I don't like to lay out in the sun, and when I am not tan, those stinkin' lines are so visible. Just a thought ....

    Thumbs down Re: Spider Veins

    Don't waste your money on Vita K. I used it....and it doesn't do a DARN thing. ALSO, I had a spider vein that was starting lasered TWICE with promises that it would finish going away...and that tiny spider vein is now creeping...it's the size of a quarter now.

    Don't bother with creams, lotion and potions. Nothing applied topically will do a thing for spider veins. What does get rid of them is sclerotherapy, especially foam sclerotherapy. It will permanently get rid of spider veins (and their "feeder" veins) but there is no guarantee that you will not get new spider veins. Also, lasers are not very effective in treating spider veins.

    Re: Spider Veins

    Hi, I have the same problem and I hate it myself (who wouldn't?) I don't really have that many but the few I have bother me and they only get more and more, so last week I went and got a consultation...
    It would cost me $1899 for 3 sessions of sclerotherapy & laser...
    Cremes etc do not work, or at least have not worked for me, in my opinion their just a waist of $$
    Well, I hope this helps give you an idea of what you are looking into...

    Keep us updated
