What are Vericose & Spider Veins?
Spider veins, also known as thread veins, are small and harmless clusters of blue, red, or purple veins that are easily visible through the skin. They are most often seen on the legs, chest, or face.
Varicose veins are swollen and enlarged veins, usually blue or dark purple in colour, that can be seen through the skin and mostly occur in the legs. They may also be lumpy, bulging or twisted in appearance. Varicose veins are a common condition, affecting up to three in 10 adults. Women tend to be more affected than men.
Any vein in the body can become varicose, but they most commonly develop in the legs and feet, particularly in the calves. This is because standing and walking puts extra pressure on the veins in the lower body.
