Spider veins are small red or bluish blood vessels found on the legs about the size of a strand of hair. They can be short, unconnected lines or connected in small clusters. Larger dilated purplish or bluish veins may be visible along the skin surface appearing with the spider veins.
Spider veins carry blood, but they are not necessary. If they are unwanted for cosmetic reasons they can be injected which can make them much smaller or disappear. There is a 50-90 % chance for improvement in appearance.
