What are leg veins?
Leg veins—often referred to as spider veins—are the red, blue, green or purple veins we often see appear beneath our skin’s surface. These unwelcome webbed or branch-like veins serve no purpose and are usually harmless, but many find them aesthetically bothersome.
What causes leg veins?
Not to be confused with varicose veins—which present as larger, bulging rope-like veins that can be painful or uncomfortable—spider leg veins are extremely common, and most of us will experience them to some degree throughout our lives. Factors that contribute to their development include family history, sun exposure, pregnancy and hormonal changes, as well as physical factors such as prolonged standing and mild trauma.
