Spider veins are small, thin veins that lie close to the surface of the skin. Appearing in red, blue or purple clusters, spider veins, or “sunburst varicosities”, are connected with the larger venous system, but are not an essential part of it. Dr. Prewitt wants you to know there’s no need to worry, their removal has no effect on your greater vascular system or health.
As their name implies, spider veins can be creeping in nature—they can cover either a very large or small area of skin. Many people are concerned about the appearance of unwanted spider veins on their thighs, calves and ankles. However spider veins are commonly found on the face as well, particularly around the nose and on cheeks. While the cause of spider veins is not completely known there are a few things we can say for sure.
Factors that may contribute to spider veins include:
- Heredity-spider veins run in families
- Women are more likely to get spider veins than men
- Hormonal shifts
- Weight gain
- Occupations that require prolonged sitting, standing, or heavy-lifting
- Certain medications
- Spider veins on the faces of fair-skinned people may be related to sun exposure
