Spider Veins are thin, threadlike veins that lie close to the skins surface and are commonly red, blue, or purple in appearance. They can be hormonally induced and associated with pregnancy and menstruation. Spider veins grow from reticular veins, also known as “feeder” veins. Feeder veins form a network of blue or green veins that can sometimes give a marbled appearance to the skin. They can be difficult to see in some people, but if they are visible, they appear on the skin’s surface. These veins may look like short, fine lines, “starburst” clusters, or a web-like maze. They are typically not palpable. Spider veins are most common in the thighs, ankles, and feet. They may also appear on the face. The medical term for them spider veins is telangiectasias.

Varicose veins are large, raised, swollen blood vessels that twist and turn. They usually develop in the legs and can be seen through the skin. Healthy veins return blood to the heart and lungs so it can be re-oxygenated. A system of valves makes this happen by allowing the blood to flow in only one direction, up. When valves fail or leak, gravity causes blood to flow backwards and pool inside the vein. This causes a varicose vein.

Common symptoms of varicose veins include: pain, fatigue, itching, burning, swelling, cramping, restlessness and throbbing.

Varicose veins often become large and rope-like. Overly distended varicose veins, especially near the ankle, can rupture and cause bleeding. In some cases, varicose veins can cause serious health issues such as venous leg ulcers. Varicose veins can be a serious disorder that restricts work and leisure activities for both men and women.
