Dr. Oz’s advice on preventing and getting rid of spider veins and varicose veins, without wasting your money! Lucky seat 86, Marsha, was the helper of the day… I wonder how he knew that she had spider veins?
So what is the difference between spider veins and varicose veins? There are valves in your veins that open and close, depending on how much pressure there is. If you get too much pressure in your veins, the valves stay open and get engorged. If these engorged veins are the small veins near the surface of your skin, then you get spider veins. If these engorged veins are the big veins that are deep inside of your body, then they become varicose veins.
