Spider Vein & Varicose Veins: 

One of the most common questions our patients ask us at Vein Center Doctor is whether spider veins and varicose veins are the same condition. Swollen blood vessels are associated with both conditions, but does that mean they’re the same thing?

While both vein conditions have similar root issues -- inefficient blood vessel valves preventing blood from moving properly through the vein -- they are mostly different in their appearance. Varicose veins are swollen and raised on the skin, with blood vessels twisting underneath the skin.

Spider vein blood vessels are smaller than varicose vein blood vessels, and appear in colors of blue, purple, and red. While spider veins cause little to no pain, varicose veins can be quite painful.

What are the different ways to treat spider veins?

Spider veins are clotted blood vessels. Because they form underneath the skin, patients often need treatment options that can repair the blood vessels from under the skin. Minimally-invasive treatments such as radiofrequency therapy and laser therapy are two popular ways to treat spider veins. Injection-based treatments like sclerotherapy are also viable methods of dealing with a vascular problem.

What causes spider veins on the skin?

Spider vein is a condition with no definitive cause. Vein specialists suggest that it can be caused by trauma to the skin, obesity, or fluctuations in hormone levels as in pregnancy. Patients with family members who have spider veins and pregnant women are at a high risk of developing spider veins and similar vascular conditions.

How do you prevent spider veins from appearing on your skin?

The underlying cause for this vascular condition is ineffective blood flow. Regular exercise, on top of maintaining a healthy weight, are both great ways to ensure your leg or face doesn’t develop spider veins.
