Spider and varicose veins are largely inherited but can be caused by pregnancy, age, obesity and prolonged standing. Veins and scars can be camouflaged with long-lasting body makeup specially formulated to cover tattoos, spider veins, scars, stretch marks and bruises.
You'll want to choose a concealer that matches the color of the skin on your legs (this will likely be different from your face). Once applied, body makeup should be set with a powder so it won't come off on your clothes.
Can I Get My Spider or Varicose Veins Removed Permanently?
I used to have purple spider veins running down the sides of my legs. I had them successfully and permanently removed with sclerotherapy a few years ago at The Vein Treatment Center on Manhattan's Upper East Side. To this day, my legs are spider vein-free.
It was some of the best money I ever spent.
You can have a dermatologist or vein specialist remove the veins from your legs. The process is involved and slightly painful, but after enduring it myself, I was very pleased with the results.
