Spider Veins (surface veins) are like varicose veins but smaller.
They begin as tiny capillaries and appear as blue or red squiggles and are most common on legs and face. They are small red, blue or purple veins that commonly appear on the surface of the thighs, calves and ankles. On the face they are often associated with the condition Rosacea.
These spider veins are a cosmetic nuisance but with a course of microsclerotherapy most patients can expect a 75% + improvement in the appearance of their legs or face.
