Spider veins are very small and very fine red or blue veins. They are closer to the surface of the skin than varicose veins. They can look like a thin red line, tree branches or spider webs. Spider veins can be found on the legs and face and may cover a small or large area.
Reticular veins can also be known as feeder veins. They are the blue and green veins beneath the surface of the skin. Reticular veins enlarge because of increased pressure in the vein. They can be caused by heredity. You may have reticular veins alone but you may also have spider veins at the same time.
Spider and reticular veins can be caused by many factors: heredity, age, posture, and gender. Women are much more likely than men to develop spider or varicose veins. Gonyon Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery offers sclerotherapy using Asclera® to remove and improve the appearance of spider veins.
