Spider veins are small often twisted vessels that appear on the surface of the leg.
They are often not painful or harmful.. They can appear purple, blue or red and often form in thin lines, webs or branches.
Men and women of all ages develop spider veins. It’s usually hereditary, so if your parents or grandparents have or had spider veins, you are more likely to develop them as well. If you become pregnant or have a job or lifestyle that requires standing for long periods of time, this may make them worse, or increase the probability of getting them. Some of our patients seek treatment for cosmetic improvement, and others are looking for relief from pain. The good news is that spider veins and their underlying cause are quite treatable, and our comprehensive approach at the CVT Vein Therapy Center handles the entirety of vein disease–not just the symptoms of it.
