What Are Spider Veins?

Spider veins are those small, red-purple-blue color veins that exist just below the surface of the skin. The veins themselves are enlarged because they are swollen with stagnant blood. Although spider veins are actually smaller than Varicose Veins, they can be more noticeable because they lie just beneath the surface of the skin and their darker color makes them more prominent. Spider veins are more common in women than in men.

Although typically not a serious medical concern, their presence can be symptomatic of various vein diseases. Spider veins can also result in itching, minor aches and pains.The common causes of spider veins include:

  • Heredity
  • Gender
  • Pregnancy
  • Hormones
  • Aging
  • Occupations requiring prolonged standing or sitting
  • Obesity
  • Injury
