How to clear spider veins with bio-dyne
Some use bio-dyne to clear varicose veins despite the FDA's lack of approval. (woman's hand rubbing lotion on leg image by Tracy Martinez from

Bio-dyne, which is extracted from brewer's yeast, was the main ingredient in (George) Sperti's Ointment, which is no longer on the market. Also known as LYCD (live yeast cell derivative), bio-dyne is a main ingredient in Preparation H sold in Canada. Many consumers apply bio-dyne topically to treat varicose veins--also known as spider veins--and many home consumers attest to its effectiveness.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Inspect the ingredients in your product of choice. Bio-dyne is generally used at 1 per cent.

  2. 2

    Wash a small area of skin with mild soap, and pat dry. Apply a small amount of bio-dyne to the area, massage it in and wait six hours to make sure you have no adverse reaction. If there is an adverse reaction, wash the bio-dyne off with mild soap and discontinue use.

  3. 3

    Wash the area of your skin you wish to apply the bio-dyne with mild soap and pat dry--if there was no negative skin reaction in Step 2. Apply the bio-dyne to the area of skin where varicose veins are visible and allow 12 hours.

  4. 4

    Wash the area again with mild soap and pat dry before reapplying. Two times per day is the recommended usage for haemorrhoids (if using Preparation H from Canada); however, some consumers report using it every six hours for varicose veins (for which there is no recommended usage from a pharmaceutical company).

Tips and warnings

  • Bio-dyne has not been approved for use for varicose veins by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and it must be used at the consumers own risk.
  • Reduce or discontinue use of bio-dyne if there are any signs of redness or swelling.
