About Spider Veins

Spider veins are small, enlarged blood vessels that appear red or blue. These dilated vessels may be short, unconnected lines, each about the size of a large hair, or they may be connected in a matted 'sunburst' pattern. They can also resemble a spider web or a tree with branches.

How Spider Veins Occur

The cause of spider veins is not completely known, but in many cases, there appears to be a genetic disposition.

 

Additionally, reports have shown that pregnancy, hormonal changes, weight gain, leg injury, or prolonged standing may influence their occurrence.
