        What is broken veins? Varicose veins you mean?

          Varicose veins can be gotten rid of by undergoing laser treatment or surgery, whereby the veins will be removed.

          There are many causes for varicose veins. Weak veins, constant standing and walking all contribute to it.

            to add to what qiu said, they can be removed by laser surgery but can recur again (i think highly likely since those who develop it are more prone to it in the first place? )

            i have tons of tiny varicose veins and a few big ones. doesn't help that i'm quite fair and my skin's quite translucent on my body. my face has fine ones but they're not that bad. the worst ones are on my legs.

              IIRC, varicose veins is also partially genetic. if your blood vessels lie closer to the surface, might be more prone.

                  I saw this brand "Skin Doctor" at watson that sell cream especially for spider veins (49.90 i think). I tried the anti-stretchmark cream before, didnt see alot improvement..but other creams also dont help stretch marks.
                  Varicose vein is more obvious in pregnant woman, because of the water retention and pressure biult up at the lower calf or ankle?

                    Advisable to approach the doctors for a diagnosis. While mild cases are easily zapped away with the lasers these days, the more severe cases where the veins are really swollen actually indicates more severe problems (weak valves in the blood vessel) and require surgery to strip the vein.

                    I also have this spider veins on face, thighs and ankles since young. Genetically inclined I suppose. Does not really bother me that much especially when I am tanned. But I am all for zapping them if I have the cash to spare.

                      There is no immediate cure for this depending on the severity of the varicose veins...only laser can make it disappear. But it will help if you drink alot of water daily. That's why bodybuilders don't drink water and dehydrate themselves before a competition. Their veins "pop" out and you get all the vein-y effect on their muscles. -eeee-

                      There are, however, botanicals you can use to constrict the veins so that they don't appear so big and ugly above the skin. Do msg me if you'd like to know more.

                        i had tried Skin Doctor" cream especially for spider veins. i see no improvement after 3 months.
                        i gave up and decided to go for scelerotherapy which cost me 88 bucks, done by a GP.
                        now my varicose veins is gone..it is worth the mild pain and swelling i had to put up for a week.
