?Spider veins?...the tiny spidery red threads seen on the faces of many individuals are often called ?broken capillaries.? Actually, they are capillaries that are dilated, stretched out of shape; not broken. Capillaries that have lost elasticity and become inflamed. Various bioflavonoids, primarily rutin and citrus bioflavonoids, known as vitamin P, have been proven (both internally and externally) to help reduce the appearance of spider veins or redness.
Since these facial areas are also sensitive, particularly to sun, weather extremes and free radicals, it?s important for daytime protection. The formula also includes anti-free radical action with Vitamin C Ester (magnesium ascorbyl phosphate), and wild yam as co-factors to help resist the look of spider veins and help avoid future damage.
