Spider veins, clinically called telangiectasia, are a relatively benign skin condition that appears as small red, purple and blue blood vessels on your legs, face or chest. Spider veins can be caused by rosacea, aging, genetics, pregnancy, sun exposure or varicose veins. Sclerotherapy treatment for spider veins is a recommended treatment option from your medical specialist in Manhattan.
This condition earned its name because its appearance resembles a spider web. While it is relatively harmless, most people feel a slight discomfort. You may feel aching, burning or mild pain after standing for prolonged periods.
