Spider Veins

"Spider vein" is the common term for blue or purple-colored veins that occur under the skin but are close enough to be seen on the surface. Spider veins rarely cause physical discomfort, but because of their appearance, they can be a source of embarrassment and self-consciousness, especially during the summer season. Spider veins are an indication of early stage venous disease, and treating them not only can improve appearance but can help stop the progression of venous disease at its source.
