Unlike other natural aspects of aging, spider veins are entirely treatable.


 

Spider veins are thin, blue, purple, or red veins that appear on the skin’s surface. Spider veins are often on the legs or face, but they can appear anywhere on the body. While varicose veins are like ropes, spider veins are like threads.

Related to spider veins, reticular veins (also known as feeder veins) are slightly larger but treated in the same fashion and at the same time as spider veins. Feeder veins are known as such since they “feed” blood to spider veins. Feeder veins are typically blue or green and are one to three millimeters in size. Both spider and feeder veins are considered cosmetic and most insurance carriers do not cover treatment.
