What are Spider Veins?

The red, blue and purple webbed lines just under your skin are tiny veins referred to as spider veins. They commonly occur on legs, however, you can find them on your face as well. Poor circulation often leads to the appearance of spider veins. Your heart is higher than your legs, and as a result, your veins have to fight against gravity to move the blood back up to it. If anything begins to constrict the flow of blood, spider veins begin to develop.

While spider veins are unsightly, they don’t always cause physical discomfort. Unfortunately, when they do, it can be debilitating. Spider vein leg pain is often experienced as a throbbing sensation in your legs. Swelling, itching, cramping, and aches can occur along with this sensation. In some cases you might even develop a rash around the area where the spider veins have appeared. In severe cases, ulcers and lesions may occur.
