Spider veins are thin lines that appear on the surface of the skin. These red, blue, or purple lines appear in clusters and look like spiderwebs.
Veins are blood vessels that return blood back to your heart for reoxygenation. Valves in these veins open and close to help push the blood forward.
Spider veins appear when there’s damage to a valve or the wall of a vein. The damage affects the normal flow of blood, allowing it to flow backward and pool. The pooling blood causes the veins to swell and branch out, creating the visible spider veins.
Your risk of developing spider veins increases as you get older. Hormonal changes, sunlight, and injuries may also cause them.
Spider veins can appear anywhere on the body, but they most often affect the face and legs.
Spider vein treatment includes various medical therapies to eliminate spider veins.
