Do you know the facts about Spider Veins vs Varicose Veins? Do you know which ones you have and how to best treat it? Let’s break it down!
Varicose and spider veins can occur in men or women of any age, but most frequently affect women in the childbearing years and older people. Varicose veins are very common. Some estimates suggest that about 10% to 15% of men and older women who have varicose or spider veins.
A family history of varicose veins and older age increase one’s tendency to develop varicose and spider veins.
Other risk factors include:
• a sedentary lifestyle
• weight gain
• prolonged standing
What causes varicose and spider veins?
The causes of varicose and spider veins are not entirely understood. In some instances, the absence or weakness of valves in the veins may cause poor venous circulation (blood flow in the veins) and lead to varicose veins.
Valves inside veins normally act to ensure that blood in the veins does not flow in a backward direction (retrograde) away from the large (deep) veins and the heart. They are mainly located in perforating veins and some deep veins.
In other cases, weaknesses in the vein walls may cause pooling of the blood. The walls of the blood vessels can become weaker and less competent than normal, causing the volume of blood in the veins to increase, thus leading to varicose veins.
Less commonly, varicose veins are caused by such diseases as:
• phlebitis (inflammation of the veins),
• blood clots or any obstruction to blood flow in the veins, or
• Congenital abnormalities of the veins.
Venous disease (disease of the veins) is generally progressive and may not be prevented entirely. However, in some cases, wearing support hosiery, maintaining a normal weight, and regular exercise may be beneficial.
With the Bellabaci System, we offer a natural solution for both Varicose and Spider Veins.
To successfully help repair and treat Spider Veins, we recommend the Bellabaci Circuflow Kit. The kit comprises of two treatment modalities, Cupping Therapy and a oil-lotion formulated with topical Homeopathic and Aromatherapeutic complexes, aimed at the repair, prevention, and treatment of Spider Veins.
Using the soft cup after you have applied the Circuflow Genie oil-lotion to the area, you squeeze the cup to create suction and set it down on the targeted area. Move and glide the cup along the spider vein, and also use zig-zag movements. This will assist to dislodge the deoxygenated blood, making the vein disappear before your eyes. The influx of fresh oxygenated blood also provides nourishment to the cells, thereby strengthening them and keeping the blood flow at a constant pace.
For Varicose Veins, you cannot use the cups directly over the veins, as the vein walls are too damaged and stretched. You can however, use the soft body cup with light pressure, next to the veins, to drain away pressure causing fluids exerting extra pressure on the vein. Apply the Circuflow Genie oil-lotion day and night as a preventative and treatment measure, and also to provide comfort to the heavy leg sensation.
Top Tip! Try our new Revive Essential Oil Concentrate, our spot treatment for veins and vitality. Just apply 1 drop to the affected area twice daily for natural support and repair.
