What are Varicose and Spider Veins?
Varicose VeinsVaricose veins are bulging veins that appear from faulty vein valves. Our veins have one-way valves that prevent blood from flowing backwards from the pull of gravity. If these valves are faulty, blood will flow backwards allowing the blood to push against the walls of the vein causing them to enlarge and results in varicose veins.
Spider VeinsSpider veins are widened venules that cause the characteristic red spider web-like marks on the skin that are esthetically unpleasant. Spider veins are commonly found on the face, thighs, feet and ankles but can occur anywhere on the body. They are generally asymptomatic, but spider veins may be painful and can cause skin irritation in rare occurrences.
