Spider Veins

Did you know that 90 per cent of women suffer the embarrassment of unsightly spider veins?

While scientific research has not come up with all the reasons why spider veins occur, most studies agree that the main cause is due to genetics. Since studies also indicate that oestrogen weakens capillary walls, the chances of developing spider veins increases with the use of birth control pills, oestrogen replacement therapy and pregnancy.

Other causes of spider veins include obesity, lack of exercise, sun damage and the natural processes of ageing.

In medical terms, spider veins are known as telangiectasias. In simple terms, spider veins are a common symptom of the body's wear and tear. Spider veins are tiny capillaries that have been stretched so often by the pressure from larger veins that they have become permanently dilated.

This abnormal dilation weakens the capillary walls causing them to rupture easily. When the walls rupture, blood seeps out and flows down along the pathway made by surrounding capillaries. When the blood dries, the result is a web-like bruise we know as spider veins.

These unsightly clusters of very fine veins lie close to the skin and take one of three patterns :

  1. The most recognised configuration is the spider web shape. These can appear almost anywhere on the body including shoulders and legs.

  2. Some veins look similar to tiny branches. These usually appear on the thighs in star burst patterns.

  3. The third pattern is linear shaped and appears as a simple separate line. They occur often in the area behind the knee.

As spider veins are likely to appear on any part of the body, Skin Doctor's Dermaceuticals has specially formulated VeinAway. It's gentle enough to use on any area of skin, even your face. The natural ingredients incorporated in VeinAway can even help to nourish and moisturise the skin.

Results may vary because of differences in the severity of the spider vein problem, skin thickness pH balance and skin type and because each person has their own unique physiology.

For most people the application of VeinAway twice a day produces the desired results in as little as six to eight weeks.

The ideal time to apply VeinAway is morning and night after a shower or bath as the skin has been pre moistened with warm water to open up the skin's pores for maximum absorption.

With particularly stubborn spider veins, there are several things you can do to achieve faster results.

These include :

  • Taking natural supplements such as Vitamin C and bioflavanoids. These assist in keeping capillary walls strong and healthy and minimise vascular fragility.

  • Eating a high fibre diet.
  • Not wearing constrictive clothing.
  • Elevate the legs 6 to 12 inches above the heart at bedtime.
  • Avoid crossing the legs.
  • Drink plenty of water.

VeinAway's active ingredients are as follows :

  • Phytonadione (Vitamin K1) naturally occurs in leafy green vegetables.
  • Aloe Vera is a natural plant extract.
  • Gingko Biloba is a herb that assists in keeping blood vessels strong and healthy.
  • Arnica helps disperse the dried blood surrounding the capillary walls.
  • Bioflavonoids are found in the white of the rind of citrus fruits, buckwheat green peppers and tomatoes.
  • Ascorbyl Palmitate is a fat soluble version of Vitamin C.
  • Calendula has considerable benefits in reducing inflammation.
  • Allantoin is used in skin soothing cosmetics.
  • Tocopheryl regularly applied to the skin may help guard against sun damage.
  • Rosehip brightens the skin.
  • Lavender is known for it's skin soothing properties.
  • Caprylkic Capric Triglyceride is an oily mixture derived from coconut oil.
  • Butylene Glycol is used to retain the cream's scent and to prevent spoilage.
  • Cyclomethicone is a water repellent.
  • Also contains buffering, neutralising and emollient agents that are impervious to humidity.

Caution: VeinAway should not be used if you are on Blood thinners such as Warfarin or Aspirin. VeinAway should not be applied to mucous membranes or broken skin. Avoid contact with eyes. Avoid ingestion. For external use only.

Frequently Asked Questions

What exactly are Spider Veins?
In the medical world spider veins are known as telangiectasias. In simpler terms spider veins are just a symptom of the body's wear and tear. Spider veins are tiny capillaries that have been stretched so often by the pressure from larger veins that they have become permanently dilated. The abnormal dilation weakens the capillary walls causing them to rupture easily. When the walls rupture, blood seeps out and flows down along the pathway made by surrounding capillaries. When the blood dries the result is a web like bruise we know as spider veins.

By using VeinAway?/u> you actually assist in the healing of the damaged capillary as well as strengthening the wall. This process gradually diminishes the spider vein until it finally disappears. In fact regular and consistent use of VeinAway?/u> may even prevent further dilation.

Where do Spider Veins occur?
These unsightly clusters of very fine veins lie close to the skin and take one of three patterns:

o The most recognised configuration is the spider web shape - This is where a group of veins spread out from a round central point. These types of spider veins can appear almost anywhere on the body including shoulders and legs.

o Some veins have an arborising shape and look similar to tiny branches. They usually appear on the thighs in star burst patterns.

o The third pattern is the linear shape that appears as simple separate lines.
They occur often in the area behind the knee.

Because spider vein are likely to appear on any part of your body Skin Doctors Dermaceuticals have specially formulated VeinAway?/u> so it's safe to use on any area of your skin.
The natural ingredients incorporated in VeinAway?/u> even help nourish and moisturise the skin!

Why do Spider Veins occur in the first place?
Scientific research has not come up with all the reasons why spider veins occur. Most studies agree that the main cause is due to genetics. But since studies also show that estrogen weakens capillary walls, the chances of developing spider veins increases with the use of birth control pills, estrogen replacement therapy and pregnancy. That's why 90% of women suffer the embarrassment of unsightly spider veins.
Other causes include obesity, lack of exercise and sun damage, but generally its aging that dilates and weakens the capillary walls which in turn increases the chances of spider veins. VeinAway?/u> is the ideal product to counter act the ravages of time and the harsh environment of Australia. It helps the capillary help itself in reducing dilation, mending walls and preventing further damage.

How does this amazing cream work?
VeinAway?/u> works in two stages;
1. First the active natural ingredients in VeinAway?/u> penetrate through the epidermal layers of the skin reaching the ruptured wall of the capillary and assists in the coagulation and mending of the wall.
2. Then the traditional natural oils in VeinAway?/u> help maintain the elasticity and health of the vein as well as disperse the dried blood on surrounding capillaries.

How long does VeinAway?/u> take to work?
Because every person has their own unique physiology, results may vary. Differences in the severity of the spider vein problem, skin thickness, pH balance/skin type have an effect of how quickly VeinAway?/u> reduces your spider veins and not all results are the same. But for most people applying VeinAway?/u> twice a day may produce the desired results in six to eight weeks. Skin Doctors Dermaceutical's feed back from over 100 000 customers show that VeinAway?/u>
successfully eliminates spider veins for over 80% of cases. The most important thing recommended to customers by Skin Doctors Dermaceuticals is to persevere.

Is it safe to use VeinAway?/u> on any part of the body?

How must VeinAway?/u> be applied to achieve maximum results?

The ideal time to apply VeinAway?/u> would be after a shower or bath. Lightly massage the cream into the skin for best results. Remember to apply the cream consistently and liberally for the desired results. Once your spider veins disappear continue using to prevent spider veins from resurfacing.

What else can be done to achieve satisfactory and speedy results?
If your spider veins are extra stubborn there are several things you could do to help achieve results faster including:

o Taking natural supplements such Vitamin C and bioflavonoids, (nutrients including hesperidin, rutin and quercetin found in the white of the rind of citrus fruits, in buckwheat, green peppers and tomatoes), help keep capillary walls strong and healthy.

VeinAwayTM Supplement.
