Article Review:

Through this health news article, different ways to minimize the effects of spider veins during pregnancy are investigated.  While heredity and hormonal changes that affect the vein wall’s ability to extend both play a role in the development of spider veins during pregnancy, there may be ways to prevent them from worsening.

During pregnancy, it is encouraged that women wear compression hose to stop varicose veins from appearing.  In addition, it is important to be mindful of weight gain during pregnancy, and to maintain regular physical activity to reduce the risk of more spider and varicose veins from developing.

Even if some veins do develop during pregnancy, many veins disappear a few weeks after delivery due to the changes in hormonal levels post-birth.  In-turn, this means that while a woman may have some vein development while pregnant, it does not mean that the means are there to stay.

Treating spider veins before pregnancy can be an effective way to avoid subsequent varicose veins from developing as well.  At La Jolla Laser, we can meet with you during a consultation to discuss which vein treatments may be best suited to your individual needs.
