The are the precursors to varicose veins. there is nothing you can do about them. Women often get them as a result of pregnancy or being overweight, or both. As they are actually veins all the creams and lotions and potions in the world will not do anything for them as they only treat the skin and not the blood vessels beneath.

they could also be due to prolonged standing...

whats your job? if it requires prolong standing, you might consider using support stockings during work, to prevent them from getting worse.

there is actually a kind of injection that can dissolve or reduce it (not sure if its the correct term though).

You might want to consult a vascular doctor about it. :wink:

Yeah, there is the surgery option, but that is for varicose veins. I don't think they will do invasive surgery for spidery veins as they are too small. But today, who knows. After reading the PS threads for the little stuff people will do.......... :wink:
