Venorex is a cream that promises it will make your varicose veins disappear amazingly fast and is a natural alternative to expensive laser procedures. Venorex claims to eliminate varicose veins, spider veins, broken capillaries, and red blotches so you can wear shorts and your legs will look sexy again.
Why Do I Have Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins is a very common occurrence in both men and women, and happens because of weak valves in the veins that can break as they pump blood back to the heart; the blood then collects there, appearing blue and twisted under the skin. The medical term for this is venous insufficiency and according to the Office of Women’s Health, about 55% of women have some sort of vein problem, as well as half the population over 55 years old.
The good news is that varicose veins and spider veins (the smaller, spider-like version) are usually not serious, although they can be accompanied by throbbing or pain. The main thing that bothers people, however, is the dark blotches make them feel old and afraid to wear a bathing suit or skirt.
How Venorex Works
Venorex is a topical cream that you rub on the affected area of the legs and they state it will get rid of the unsightly veins quickly, but they provide no specific timetable for it to work. Its main ingredient (aside from deionized water) appears to be Aloe Barbadensis Leaf (aka aloe vera gel), a succulent commonly used in many skin care creams and said to have restorative properties. However, these claims have not been supported by any scientific evidence.
Venorex says a study shows an 89% decrease in the appearance of varicose veins, a 95% decrease in spider veins, and an 87% decrease in broken capillaries and red blotches, but they don’t give any further information on the study or where it was conducted. We could find no evidence that aloe vera (or any topical ingredient) helps diminish varicose veins.
Venorex appears to offer you several options to buy their cream, the default being $144 for a 5-month supply but you can choose 3 months for $96 or 1 for $54.95. But what also happens is they sign you up for an auto-ship program that bills and sends you more products when you run out. All orders of Venorex are final and cannot be cancelled.
Venorex comes with a 90-day return policy, which is from date ordered not when you receive it. In addition, they state you cannot return partial orders or opened items and they are subject to a restocking fee of $10 per item. With your order, you are also signing an arbitration agreement, which removes your right to sue them in a court of law.
Bottom Line: Is Venorex a Scam?
In other words: we recommend you stay away from Venorex and don’t enter any information on the website.
If you are looking to treat varicose veins we sympathize, but remember, with more than half of women experiencing the same thing, you are hardly alone. There are several different surgical treatments for varicose veins as outlined in this article from WebMD. These include lasers and injections that can be quite effective; however, they are not cheap and usually not covered by insurance.
And although you can’t prevent varicose veins from happening, the National Institute of Health outlines several ways you can delay others from forming. These include avoiding sitting for long periods, losing weight, and not wearing high heels and tight pants. You may also want to talk with your doctor, and they may prescribe compression stockings or suggest a supplement.
