What is spider veins?

Spider veins are small, damaged veins that appear on the skin of the face or legs. Spider veins usually form due to the improper functioning valves and walls of the veins. When the vein valves and walls are damaged or weakened, the blood flow in the direction of the heart gets obstructed. This results in the pooling of blood in the veins and the veins become swollen.

Depending upon the severity of spider veins, they can appear from dark blue to purple. Spider veins are also known as thread veins that make a web-like structure.

    Treatment of spider veins


    The doctor conducts physical examinations and some other tests for the diagnosis of spider veins. The doctor tracks the flow of blood in the veins through a Doppler test. An ultrasound can also be recommended to look for deep vein thrombosis. Depending upon the seriousness of the condition, the doctor suggests proper treatment options.


    When all the remedies and exercises fail to improve your condition of spider veins, then immediately consult your nearest doctor. Getting spider veins treated is necessary to prevent the disruption or irregularity in the flow of blood. The most advanced laser-based treatment is best to cure spider veins. If you experience serious pain, then don’t hesitate from going for the laser-assisted treatment that is minimally invasive. This treatment offers fast recovery and the patient can go back to their daily routine life in 2-3 days.

    Are varicose veins and spider veins the same?

    Varicose veins and spider veins are both venous disorders that appear mostly on the legs. Varicose and spider veins are both damaged swollen veins. Both the diseases have almost the same causes and symptoms but there are a few differences too. Varicose veins are large, twisted, bluish veins that are damaged. Spider veins are the smaller version of the same disorder. Both varicose veins and spider veins occur when the valves and veins of the legs become weak, hindering the flow of the blood. This causes the pooling of blood and increases the pressure in the veins.
    Read MoreSpider veins are not always painful. They do not cause swelling or any major health complications. Varicose veins can be extremely painful and cause heaviness, swelling and discomfort in the legs. Treatment for spider veins is often done for cosmetic reason. Treatment for varicose veins is a must and often requires surgical intervention.

    What happens in laser surgery for spider veins?

    Laser surgery for spider veins is a very simple surgical procedure that can permanently help you get rid of venous disorder. Few days before the laser surgery, you need to stop taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs or any herbal supplements. The surgeon will advise you to quit smoking and taking medications other than what is needed. The surgery is usually performed on an outpatient basis. The number of sessions required to treat the spider veins may vary. On the day of laser surgery for varicose veins, the vascular surgeon will guide a strong beam of light at the spider veins which will obliterate through the skin. The laser beam closes the damaged spider veins. The veins shrink and form scar tissue within the vessel, sealing off the vein. This allows the blood to flow through other nearby veins instead.

    What to expect after laser treatment for spider veins?

    Usually, there are no risks and complications in the recovery process after laser treatment for spider veins. But in a few cases, the patient may experience any of the following post-surgical side effects:
    • The surgery site may remain red and feel hot for a few hours.
    • A slight burning sensation (similar to that of a sunburn) may be experienced in the surgery site.
    • Mild swelling in the surgical site that may take a few days time to disappear.
    For quick recovery:
    • Massage the area gently as per the doctor’s advice.
    • Keep your legs elevated to encourage proper blood flow.
    • Do not put pressure on your legs.

    What are the best home remedies for spider veins?

    1. Apple cider vinegar- Apple cider vinegar is a very common and popular remedy to treat spider veins. The acetic acid present in apple cider vinegar improves the blood flow and circulation throughout the body. This decreases the chances of the formation of spider veins and varicose veins. Usually, it is recommended to apply the vinegar directly to the skin. In some cases, people are recommended to dip a piece of cloth in the vinegar and cover the spider veins affected area with it for 15-30 minutes.
    2. Tea tree oil- Using tea tree oil is a very successful remedy to combat spider veins. Mix tea tree essential oil with a carrier oil such as coconut oil. Apply this mixture of oil on the spider veins affected skin. Tea tree oil helps in diminishing the spider veins faster. Do not apply the essential oil directly to the area as the concentrated oil can have negative effects on the condition.
    3. Aloe vera- Yes, aloe vera is helpful in curing spider veins as well. The cooling effects of aloe vera subside the itching and the burning sensation that spider veins cause in the skin.
    4. Lemongrass essential oil- Use this essential oil by mixing it with coconut oil. Lemongrass oil enhances blood circulation and prevents the pooling of blood in spider veins.
    5. Gentle massage- Massage is very effective on spider veins as it immediately stimulates healthy blood circulation. Gentle massage also brings major relief from the pain and the swelling that occur due to spider veins. Massage should only be performed by a professional therapist and even better by someone who has the experience of treating spider veins.
    6. Compression stockings- If the spider veins are troubling you, wearing compression stockings is very effective in dealing with them. These stockings prevent the blood from pooling in the spider veins. Wearing compression stockings regularly also keeps away the chances of the formation of new spider veins.

    Food to eat with spider veins

    1. Avocados – Avocados are great for vascular health and significantly improve the condition of spider veins. Vitamin C present in avocados has anti-inflammatory effects. Avocados are also a rich source of Vitamin E which helps in the thinning of the blood and prevents blood clots.
    2. Beets- Beets contain a chemical called betacyanin which keeps the level of homocysteine in check and prevents damage to the blood vessels. Beets also have high contents of nitrates which make the blood vessels wider and improve blood circulation.
    3. Asparagus- Asparagus is a rich source of vitamins, minerals, fibers, folates, chromium, calcium, and phosphorus which are essential for overall health. Asparagus also strengthens the blood vessels and prevents them from rupturing.
    4. Ginger- Ginger works miraculously in improving the condition of spider veins. Ginger has anti-inflammatory properties and also increases the circulation of blood. Ginger is also effective in breaking down fibrin, thereby preventing the veins from becoming hard and lumpy.
    5. Chia seeds- Chia seeds are a rich source of dietary fibers. They improve overall vascular health by boosting blood flow and strengthening the walls of the blood vessels. Thus, chia seeds are beneficial in curing spider veins.
    6. Cruciferous vegetables- Broccoli, brussels, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, radish are highly recommended diet options for spider veins. These cruciferous vegetables are nutritious and help in maintaining normal body weight.
    7. Fibrous fruits- Fruits like berries, apples, oranges and pears are high in fiber content and are quite beneficial for spider veins. Fibers present in these fruits improve bowel functioning and prevent constipation, which, in turn, prevents further deterioration of spider veins.
