Spider Veins

Spider veins are small, thin blood vessels that lie close to the surface of the skin and appear red or blue.

These small, enlarged blood vessels may appear as short, unconnected lines or may be connected in a spider web or cluster pattern.

Spider veins can cover a large area of skin and are unattractive. They commonly occur in the thighs, ankles and feet. At times, they may be uncomfortable.
