Varicose and spider veins impact a person’s self-esteem and confidence whether wearing a pair of shorts or spending time on the beach in a bathing suit.
Spider veins can be blue, purple, or red. They may appear in the form of thin lines, webs, or branches. Typically, they are not painful or harmful, but some people may wish to treat them for cosmetic reasons.
In the legs, spider veins can occur when the valves inside the veins stop working correctly.
Veins carry blood back to the heart. To prevent blood from flowing backward, they contain a one-way valve that closes once the blood passes through it.
If this valve weakens or sustains damage, the blood may have difficulty flowing in the correct direction, and it can begin to pool inside the vein. Over time, this can cause a bulge in the vein that branches out, resulting in spider veins.
