As I’ve grown older I’ve noticed so many unwelcome marks on my body: brown spots, red blotches, strange folds and dimples and lines marking their territory. One of the areas that give me grief- and other women as well- are my legs. Forget cellulite! I’m talking spider veins. I’ve tried needles but now I just wear longer shorts and hemlines to cover them up.
But, what can be done to avoid or minimize spider veins and varicose veins?
I’ve invited Dr. Danielle Bajakian, Director of the Critical Limb Ischemia Program at Columbia University Medical Center, to join me June 22, 9:28pmET on Fearless Fabulous You! to help us understand the causes and differences between spider veins and varicose veins. We’ll discuss:
Who’s more at risk for spider or varicose veins?
What lifestyle change can we make to reduce getting them and managing them when we DO get them?
Do they provide a health risk? And when should you seek medical attention?
What treatment options are there and are any of them covered by health insurance?
