Spider Veins Q & A

What are spider veins?

Spider veins are thin, damaged superficial veins that appear on your skin. They form when the valves inside a vein are weak or damaged and don’t work correctly. They get their name from their appearance because they look like a spider web on your skin. 

Spider veins are usually blue, purple, or red. They typically develop on your ankles, calves, thighs, and the back of the knee. You might also have spider veins on your face.

Most of the time, spider veins are harmless. However, depending on the severity of your condition, you might experience aches, pain, swelling, or itching.

What causes spider veins?

Your veins move blood back to your heart and have valves that help push your blood on its return journey. 

The valves are supposed to be one-way, but weakness or damage can cause them to fail and allow blood to leak backward — a condition known as chronic venous insufficiency. 

As a result, your blood can pool inside your vein. The excess blood makes your vein bulge, and it branches out, creating visible spider veins on your skin. 

Several factors may contribute to your risk of developing spider veins, including:

  • Family history of spider veins
  • Age
  • Being overweight or obese
  • Hormonal changes
  • Sitting or standing for a long time
  • Pregnancy

You can reduce your risk of spider veins by staying active and maintaining a healthy weight. If you spend a lot of time on your feet, you can also wear compression stockings to support vascular health.
