What are the risk factors for varicose veins?
- Heredity (runs in the family)
- Older Age
- Female Gender
Although spider veins are considered cosmetic, they frequently cause symptoms.
- Aching or painful veins
- Bleeding veins
- Itchy veins
The body tends to continue producing spider veins despite successful vein treatment. For this reason, touch up treatment is usually necessary.
Veins slightly larger than spider veins are called reticular veins, also known
as feeding veins since they “feed spider veins blood.” These veins are
typically blue or green.
Spider and reticular veins are considered cosmetic and most insurance
carriers do not cover treatment.
