One of the most tried and true methods to help treat spider veins is to apply uniformed pressure to the legs using compression stockings that have been specially designed. One of the reasons that spider veins appear is the loss of elasticity in the blood vessels.
The enlargement of the blood vessels reduces how efficient the venous valves work. The valves are designed to prevent backflow and when they are not working efficiently, pools of blood can form. Applying gentle and consistent pressure will compress the veins, which reduces the diameter.
This will help the valves work more efficiently at preventing backflow. Providing additional support for the venous walls will help to smooth the blood flow and reduce the risk of blood clots developing. Compression stockings when used during the first stages of varicose veins can help stop them from progressing. There are many types of these stockings available, make sure to discuss the options with your doctor so that you choose the best ones.
