What are Spider Veins?

Description of the disease

Spider veins are red or purple branches on the skin, caused by the expansion of capillaries. This condition is most commonly found on the legs and face.


  • Capillary spider veins
  • Venous spider veins
  • Arterial spider veins


Spider veins usually appear as a web or mesh on the skin. They are sometimes accompanied by pain, leg fatigue, and swelling.


The main cause of spider veins is the improper functioning of valves in the veins, leading to their expansion and the formation of spider veins.


Diagnosis includes examination and ultrasound examination of the vessels to determine the extent and condition of the veins.


Treatment may include sclerotherapy, laser or radiofrequency coagulation, and surgical removal of spider veins.


For prevention, it is recommended to lead an active lifestyle, avoid prolonged standing or sitting, and wear compression clothing.


Spider vein treatment is provided by phlebologists or surgeons.
