What Are Spider Veins?

Spider veins are unhealthy veins just underneath the skin, most commonly located on the lower extremities. Spider veins are usually blue, red, or purple in color and are often found in clusters that spread outward. They may have a spidery appearance, giving them their name. Spider veins are often due to an underlying condition called chronic venous insufficiency. The medical term for spider veins is telangiectasia.

What Causes Spider Veins?

Spider veins are often due to poor circulation in the veins slightly deeper within the legs, a condition known as chronic venous insufficiency.

The primary task of the veins in the legs is to carry blood back up to the heart. Veins deep within the legs carry most of the blood. A second set of veins closer to the skin, known as the saphenous or superficial veins, carry a minority of blood upwards. All of the veins in the legs use one-way doors called valves to help keep blood flowing in the correct direction. Blood flows up, against gravity, past a valve. Then the valve shuts, preventing the blood from falling back down to the feet. Due to a number of different factors, valves may become dysfunctional and allow blood to leak back downwards. The veins below the valve swell and bulge, and new veins (including spider veins) may form due to the elevated pressure in the superficial veins.

Who is at Risk for Spider Veins?

Spider veins are predominantly found in adults, and the risk of spider veins increases with age. High estrogen levels increase the risk of spider veins. So they are more common in women than in men, although both genders may be affected. Other risk factors include pregnancy, obesity/overweight, hormone therapy (HT), a job that requires prolonged sitting/standing, leg injury, birth control pills, family history of vein disease, and a history of blood clots.
