What are spider veins and varicose veins?

Spider veins, which are typically caused by the build-up of blood in smaller veins, and can be characterized by blue, red, or purplish web-like collections of blood vessels that are found close to the skin’s surface. Although they are mostly a cosmetic concern for many of our patients, they do sometimes cause minor symptoms, such as burning or itching.

Like spider veins, varicose veins are also a sign of weak or failing venous valves. This condition occurs when weakened or abnormal veins become swollen with blood that should be pumped back to the heart. Varicose veins are often accompanied by uncomfortable symptoms, such as swelling or aching in the legs.

Why is early intervention important?

While spider and varicose veins may seem like cosmetic issues, early intervention and treatment is important for your health. Spider veins and varicose veins can indicate deeper venous issues that can lead to serious health conditions such as a pulmonary embolism, thrombophlebitis, and deep vein thrombosis.

Because spider veins and varicose veins are caused by weakened or faulty veins, seeing a vein specialist early for sclerotherapy or endovenous laser ablation can help prevent future medical complications. They can also educate you on lifestyle changes that help to prevent recurring spider and varicose veins.
