How can I prevent varicose and spider veins?

Not all varicose and spider veins can be prevented, but some actions can reduce your chances of getting new varicose and spider veins.


  • Control your weight to avoid increased pressure in the abdomen. Excessive weight increases pressure in leg veins which will result in more varicosities.
  • Avoid tight clothing that constricts your waist, groin or legs. Such clothing can also cause increased pressure in the leg veins.
  • Elevate your legs when resting.
  • If your occupation requires you to sit or stand for many hours, wear elastic support stockings. It is important that the elastic stockings are of the graduated compression type.
  • Wear sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun and to limit spider veins on the face.
