The exact cause of spider veins has not been proven, but heredity, local trauma, hormonal levels, and occupations requiring prolonged standing are believed to be contributing factors. Spider veins become more numerous with age, and are more common in women. With todayâ€™s Alaska Rewards $148 deal you get a spider-vein treatment (a $600 value) or $600 toward a varicose-vein treatment atÂ Alaska Vein Care at either of their locations in Wasilla or Kenai.

Varicose veins affect nearly 40 per cent of the population.
