Spider veins

Just curiousity really... I was sitting and realized tons of what lookes like spider veins all over my thighs. They've never been there before, or even this morning when I shaved. I can't seem to find anything online but I'm not that good at searching anyways... Is there something that could cause them to appear that quick? And then make them dissapear hopefully too

Re: Spider veins

I've seen pills at health stores that are supposed to help with spider veins. I've don't know anyone who's tried them so I don't know if they work or not.

Re: Spider veins

Hormonal changes, pregnancy, and menopause. Taking birth control pills and other medicines containing estrogen and progesterone also increase the risk of varicose or spider veins on the body. Obesity, leg injury, prolonged standing and other things that weaken vein valves cause spider veins too.
The ones on the face are mostly from the sun.

Laser surgery can remove them. As for any other treatment I really don't know. I never heard or know of anyone that was able to get the creams and pills to work.

Re: Spider veins

I'm not really worried about them or trying to get rid of them, I was just curious as why they would so up so quick. They are gone now this morning. It was just quite odd and I was wondering what would make alot of veins show up randomly and so quickly.
