As more and more people are experiencing vein-related disorders, such as chronic venous insufficiency, varicose and spider veins, natural remedies, creams and herbal supplements become more popular as an alternative to vein removal surgery, laser therapy and sclerotherapy. Especially when the symptoms of venous disorders are fairly mild, people tend to look for over-the-counter products rather than making an appointment with a physician.
When varicose and spider veins are more of an aesthetic concern than a serious health issue, a variety of natural vein removal creams is available on the market:
- Invisi-Vein varicose vein cream is advertised as a unique and highly concentrated formula to treat and prevent the swelling related to varicose veins. Its main ingredients include calendula flowers, or marigold, vitamin E, cypress, lemon, chamomile, and others. Marigold truly does contain flavonoids, formerly referred to as vitamin P and claimed to be antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, antibacterial, antiviral, etc.
- Venarin cream for spider veins is supposed to attack the root causes of spider veins – weak vein valves and walls, improve the vein valve function and help eliminate the discoloration. All of this because of its main ingredients: Japanese pagoda tree, horse chestnut and grape seed.
- Perricone MD offers a wide selection of Spider Vein products which will help improve the appearance of spider veins thanks to specific neuropeptides and vitamin C wrapped up in a product called Cold Plasma.
If you want to give vein removal creams a chance, go for it. Its active ingredients might help a little with the first unsightly symptoms and unflattering appearance. However, you should be aware that there is no official research or conclusive data behind these products and they have thus not been proven effective by the medical community. If you’re not happy with the current state of your varicose or spider veins, it is best to schedule an appointment with a medical professional to find out about your options and have the affected areas properly treated.
