Spider Veins

Spider Veins


Spider veins are small, dilated blood vessels near the surface of the skin. They are usually red, blue or purple, and look like colored threads running just beneath your skin. Spider veins are caused by heredity, pregnancy, and prolonged sitting or standing. Generally speaking, spider veins do not create the health problems that varicose veins do. However, there can be an underlying cause that should be addressed before treatment occurs if your spider veins are accompanied by symptoms such as pain, swelling, heaviness, itching, or aching. Spider veins can be treated with visual cosmetic sclerotherapy, topical skin laser, or a combination of both.
