Spider Veins

Spider veins, like varicose veins, are caused by dysfunctional vein valves. However, spider veins appear as a nest of blue or red veins just under the surface of the skin and typically do not bulge above the skin’s surface like varicose veins. These veins are closer to the surface of the skin and can spread over a range of areas.

Risk factors for the development of spider veins include a family history of varicose or spider veins, female gender, increased number of pregnancies, premenstrual leg aches or cramps, being overweight, a sedentary life style, occupations that require prolonged sitting or standing and increasing age as the most common.
