Understanding Spider Veins:
A Brief Guide


Spider Veins are small, dilated, web-like blood vessels that are located near the skin surface.

Such veins may become dilated due to multiple factors that include genetics, hormonal influences, pregnancy and injury. While they can cause significant emotional discomfort, they typically do not cause pain

If spider veins on the thighs & legs are associated with symptoms, there may be issues with larger superficial veins located deeper beneath the surface.
