What are spider veins?
Spider veins -- small, dilated, superficial veins on the legs -- are a common problem, particularly in women after pregnancy and in people with varicose veins. Large varicose veins are most often treated surgically. But certain small superficial veins, called telangiectasias, are best treated with Sclerotherapy or Laser.
What causes spider veins to be visible?
These unwanted blood vessels often occur as an inherited tendency, and may be part of the aging process. Long periods of standing or sitting, trauma to the leg from blows or falls, pregnancy, birth control pills, and hormone replacement therapy are all factors that can be involved.
