Spider Vein Causes and Treatment
In some women, spider veins – those small clusters of red, blue, or purple veins that appear on the thighs, calves, and ankles – become noticeable at a young age. For others, the veins may not become obvious until much later.
A number of factors may contribute to the development of spider veins in the legs, including:
• Hormonal shifts
• Occupations or activities that require prolonged sitting or standing
• Weight fluctuation
There are effective, safe and relatively painless methods available for reducing spider veins.
