Spider Veins

Spider veins and varicose veins have a common feature – they both pose the same problem of cosmetic issue. Spider veins are tiny in nature and present a web like appearance. Although the spider veins are visible on the surface of the skin and they are harmless but sometimes pain, irritation, swelling are experienced. Though they are mostly treated for aesthetic issues proper diagnoses may help to find out underlying varicose vein problem if the pain or other discomfort is severe. They appear on the surface of the skin and are easily visible as they are in clusters as webs. Spider veins appear in reddish or purplish color and unlike varicose, do not protrude, or bulge.


Spider veins can get developed due to the same reason as that of varicose veins. Apart from heredity, prolonged sitting or standing, menopause, obesity, and pregnancy are additional aspects that influence the formation of spider veins.

Treatment Procedure

As these are very tiny in nature, measuring less than 1 mm in diameter, Sclerotherapy is the best suited option. A small quantity of liquid is injected inside the affected vein. The sclerosing liquid acts upon the lining of the vein and produces scars. These scars in turn seals the vein and hence completely by-passes the blood flow through these veins.
