Thread veins: the causes

9th October 2013

Most of us women love pampering and taking good care of our appearance. However, does it sometimes seem like a difficult task to look your best because of your thread veins? Then why not learn exactly where these have come from and find a permanent and safe solution to this condition.

Thread veins are also referred to as spider veins for their web like appearance. The condition presents as a web of red or blue blood vessels on the surface of the skin. There are a number of factors which cause these.

The Causes

Occupation - physical type of work that requires you to be on your feet for lengthy periods of time such as retail and nursing can result in blood circulation in the legs slowing down, leading to thread veins.

Leg Injuries - some injuries can affect the veins, such as fractures in the leg due to damage caused to the blood circulation, therefore resulting in the development of thread veins.

Alcohol - let’s face it many of us are guilty of drinking alcohol whether in the comforts of our home or out for a relaxed evening with our partners or friends. The truth is overdoing the alcohol could also cause thread veins, especially on the face. As they say, moderation is key!

Obesity - If you are overweight it is likely you may suffer from thread veins due to the pressure that is put on the vein walls.
