Legs, arms, & chest, even(face sometimes) turn blue when feeling cold or jst standing up for a little. Ever since got lots of spider veins. Help? Thnx.

Circulation/Raynauds: Turning blue when exposed to cold is an extreme reaction to what the body normally does in response to the cold. When cold, the blood vessels in the extremities and superficial skin constrict to conserve heat. This occurs more drastically for some, and may even turn the skin blue or cause pain in some people. This can be associated with other disorders and it is important to have it evaluated. ...Read more

Many factors: The most common cause of spider and varicose veins are hereditary factors followed by pregnancies. The more pregnancies the greater the chance of vein formation due to stretcthing of the vein valves causing reflux(leaking). In general when veins occur at an early age there is a strong genetic component. It seems that both you and your child have a strong genetic component. See a vein speciailst. ...Read more

Laser versus cauterty of facila spider veins... Which is safer? Will cautery cause scarring of my face? Does one hurt more than the other?

Laser versus cauterty of facila spider veins... Which is safer? Will cautery cause scarring of my face? Does one hurt more than the other?

Both are safe: Both laser and cautery work well to treat facial telangiectasias. When a large area of the face needs treatment, a laser is often easier and faster to do. When there are localized areas that need treatment, cautery is often more effective and is less likely to cause loss of pigment in the skin. It is helpful to use a topical numbing cream, so both treatments are more comfortable. ...Read more
