General Questions

What are spider veins?

Spider veins are a group of blood vessels located near your skin’s surface that are dilated and form a pronounced, dark color. These veins are commonly found on your legs or face and are usually harmless. They may, however, produce a dull aching or burning pain when you’ve been standing for long periods of time.

These veins are more common in women than men. More than 40% of women have a varicose vein condition such as spider veins. By age 80, 80% of women have some form of venous disease.

What are the risk factors for spider veins?

The cause of spider veins isn’t entirely clear, but certain factors increase your risk of getting them, such as:

  • Sun damage
  • Pregnancy
  • Heredity
  • Trauma
  • Hormone changes
  • Aging
