Spider veins are small red, purple or blue vessels that twist and turn and are easily visile through the skin. the health risk with spider veins is minimal, they can be unsightly or cause significant leg discomfort after prolonged standing. In some cases, however, spider veins located below the knee or near the ankles can be an early sign, or the result, of uderlying varicose veins.
Most spider veins are treated via sclerotherapy, a technique in which a very fine needle injects a solution directly into the veins causing the vein lining to close preventing blood Flow. The veins are then absorbed by the body and disappear.
