Spider veins (telengiectasias) are those unwanted blood vessels that make their appearance close to the surface of our skin. Sometimes they appear on our face (for more information on facial veins, click here) and often we find them on our legs, making us insecure about wearing shorts or skirts. Spider veins on the legs affect millions of people. Appearing as thin red, bluish or purple veins they can result from sun exposure, use of oral contraception, hormone therapy, the aging process, occupations that involve prolonged standing or heredity.  Although these super-fine veins are connected with the larger venous system, they are not an essential part of it. Varicose veins differ from spider veins in a number of ways. Varicose veins are larger in diameter, darker in color, and tend to bulge.  They are also more likely to cause pain and be related to more serious vein disorders.  Often surgical treatment is necessary for this condition.
