Will My Spider Veins Fade On Their Own?

will my spider veins fade on their own graphicSpider veins are a common problem for many people. They are caused by a variety of factors and can be unsightly and embarrassing. There are ways to get rid of spider veins if they’re causing you to be uncomfortable or uneasy with their appearance. Summit Skin and Vein Care will help you understand what spider veins are, what causes them, and how they can be treated.

Do Spider Veins Fade On Their Own?

Unfortunately, spider veins do not go away on their own. They are caused by a variety of factors including genetics, weight gain, pregnancy, standing or sitting for long periods of time, age, or underlying vein disease. Spider veins can also form due to injury or trauma to the skin.

What Are Spider Veins?

Spider veins are small, red or blue blood vessels that appear just under the surface of the skin. They can cluster together to form a spider-like shape, hence the name “spider veins.” Spider veins commonly occur on the legs and face, but can also appear on other parts of the body.

Although spider veins may not fade naturally over time, there are treatments available to help improve their appearance. Sclerotherapy is a common and effective spider vein treatment where a solution is injected into the veins, causing them to collapse and fade over time. Laser therapy can also be used for spider vein removal.

Protect Your Skin from Sun Damage

With Summer Fun Comes Unwanted Risks

Another summer is quickly approaching, but all the fun poolside days and time spent outside soaking up the summer sun comes with a risk: sun damage and skin cancer. We all want that healthy, sun-kissed glow, but it is so important to put your health first and realize that over exposure to UV rays is dangerous. Even if you’re not getting your tan on outside, you may be achieving that bronzed look by hitting the tanning beds.

According to the American Cancer Foundation, tanning beds are a $5 million a year industry. Unfortunately, it’s an industry that is making a huge profit at the expense of your skin, and in some cases, your life. Did you know that if you use a tanning bed before the age of 35, you are increasing your risk of melanoma by 75%? Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer, and just by using a tanning bed one time, you are playing a dangerous game with your health.

Preventing Sun Damage and Skin Cancer

Being healthy and happy is always more beautiful than damaging your skin just to achieve a tan look. Always wear and reapply sunscreen whenever you will be exposed to the sun for more than a few minutes. By adding this simple step to your daily beauty routine, you are not only protecting your health, but also ensuring that your skin will age well and that you will avoid those pesky wrinkles for as long as possible.

Your choice of makeup can also have a huge effect on your skin’s health. At Summit Skin & Vein Care, we proudly showcase our collection of Jane Iredale Mineral Makeup.

Four Great Ways to Keep Your Skin Healthy and Young

While no one denies that older women can be stunningly beautiful, younger looking skin is definitely in style these days. Women everywhere are spending large amounts of money to achieve that young, youthful glow that rarely happens naturally. Here are four great anti aging measures that anyone can—and should—take today.

Anti aging trick #1: Reduce Sun Exposure

The effects of aging aren’t only caused by time. They are also often a result of a lifetime of sun exposure. Reduce your sun exposure by wearing sunscreen, by avoiding the sun from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and by wearing protective clothing. For the best anti aging results, follow this advice not only when you plan to be outside all day, but even when you are driving or sitting next to a window.

Drinking plenty of water is absolutely essential for staying well hydrated and preventing fine lines and wrinkles. Be careful how you drink your water, though. Too much sipping from a straw or sucking from a bottle can actually cause more fine lines around the mouth. For anti aging benefits, drink from a regular glass or wide mouthed bottle instead.

Anti aging trick #3: Get Enough Sleep

Your body repairs itself while you are sleeping, and if you don’t get enough sleep, you lose out on the anti aging benefits. Plus, the lack of sleep can cause a look of tiredness as well as unsightly bags under your eyes. Create a consistent bedtime routine for anti aging benefits.

Anti aging trick #4: Moisturize

While any moisturizer is better than none at all, a quality moisturizer is best for achieving great anti aging results. A quality moisturizer will help protect your skin from harsh weather and sunlight, and it will help your skin to look young and fresh. Be sure to choose a non-greasy formula without alcohol, which can be drying.

Summit Skin and Vein Care offers skin care treatments, such as cellulite treatment, skin pigmentation, wrinkle treatment and more.
