Spider and Varicose VeinsWho is susceptible: Kauvar says spider and varicose veins are usually inherited (thanks mom!) and more than half of women get them. They can be triggered by pregnancy and hormones, or by standing for long periods of time.
How to prevent them: Keep your calf muscles toned, Kauvar says, because it helps send the blood in your legs back up to your heart. You can also try wearing compression hose if your legs hurt from standing.
How to treat them: "Sclerotherapy (injecting a chemical solution into the vein with a hair thin needle) is the main treatment, but lasers are used in specific circumstances," Kauvar says. If they are causing you pain (or you just want to get rid of them), talk to your doctor.
