Spider veins are considered a mild form of venous insufficiency, and typically occur in middle aged women and men. Often provoked by sun exposure, excess pressure, or hormonal changes, spider veins are dilated capillaries that appear as red or purple star-burst / web shaped clusters on the legs or face. Although they are not normally considered a threat to individual health, many people choose to undergo spider vein treatment to remove these unsightly cosmetic blemishes.
Spider veins are similar to varicose veins – though they are smaller and exist much closer to the surface of the skin. Because they often appear darker in color than an individual’s natural skin pigment, spider veins can be difficult to conceal with makeup or other skin care products. Although individuals who have weak capillary networks are at a higher risk of developing spider veins, this common cosmetic condition can affect anyone.
