Don’t let the airbrushing fool you. Celebrities do not have perfect skin and bodies, despite what you see in photos and videos. Like all of us, they have skin and health problems, including venous disease. So, if you feel embarrassed about your varicose veins or spider veins, our list of celebrities with spider veins should remind you that we all struggle with physical imperfections. You are not alone.
Celebrities With Spider Veins and Varicose Veins
Out of respect for the medical privacy of these celebrities, we have chosen to not reveal their names. Rest assured that, celebrity or not, the risk of developing varicose and spider veins is real for each of us. The consideration is what can be done to prevent or slow the progression of vein disease and what can be done to turn back the hands of time and correct the problem.
Stories of Celebrities With Spider Veins and Varicose Veins
Dancing in very high heels night after night can put a toll on anyone’s legs. Top that off with having two children and one famous singer/actress reportedly developed varicose veins. Money, premium access to medical care, healthy food, and trainers didn’t stop varicose veins from forming in this star’s legs.
In addition to reports of varicose veins, a picture from a professional photo shoot was leaked showing visible imperfections before the photo editors touched up the picture. This should serve as a reminder for each of us that young celebrities are humans just like us.
An A-list actress, mother, and entrepreneur, has said she wears compression socks when she travels. Smart move, but of course, that led to rumors that she had venous disease. While it’s possible, it’s also possible this health conscious mama is just being smart.
We don’t often think that a professional athlete could develop unhealthy circulation, but that’s just what happened to our next celebrity and pro tennis player. While it’s not known if this professional athlete had varicose veins, she did develop a DVT (deep vein thrombosis) blood clot after foot surgery and a long plane flight. The DVT broke loose and traveled to her lungs, causing a life-threatening PE (pulmonary embolism). Fortunately, she bounced back and even participated in the 2016 Summer Olympics while pregnant!
In 2014, a 25 year old beauty pageant contestant had visible varicose veins that she attributed to her professional modeling career during childhood. Even at the age of 17, she said that photographers would point out the visible veins on her legs.
