Are those veins on legs starting to appear already? Known as varicose or spider veins, not only do they look ugly but painful as well. Prolonged hours of standing or walking might trigger pain and cause swelling. For those who are overweight, it is also common to them. Nowadays there are treatment options available to help those who suffer get rid of it. Sclerotherapy is one example. Through a tiny needle, the veins are injected with a solution that irritates the lining of the vein. It will then collapse and reabsorbed, making it no longer visible. Other solutions would be laser treatments and ultrasound. My mom has varicose veins on her legs. The good thing is it's not severe. When time comes I can have them come over here in the states, might as well treat the veins on her legs so that it won't worsen. Anyway, prevention is better than cure. To avoid having those not so nice looking veins, it would help to keep our legs elevated after long hours of standing. Losing weight can reduce the risk of appearance as well so a healthy and active lifestyle would be the best precaution and treatment of course.
