About Spider Vein Treatments

Spider veins are small red, blue or purple veins on the surface of the skin. Spider veins often do not cause pain, but simply appear unattractive. Varicose veins are different from spider veins - they are larger, distended veins that are located deeper below the surface of the skin than the smaller spider veins.
