“Spider veins” occur when tiny veins congregate below the surface of the skin, causing red, blue or purple discolorations. Spider veins get their name from the shape of the discolorations.

They are most common on the thighs, ankles and calves, and are more common in women than men. Their cause isn’t completely understood in every case, but they can run in families. Some cases are related to pregnancy, use of birth control pills or weight gain.

After treatment, a slight discoloration of the skin may remain for weeks or even as long as a year before fading. In many cases, they disappear entirely, but they can return.
