Spider veins are small red, purple and blue vessels located just below the surface of the skin. They can have a web-like appearance, hence the term “spider vein.”

It is estimated that more than 8 million Canadians suffer from some form of venous disorder and up to 50% of
Canadian women are affected by spider veins. There are several factors that predispose us to spider veins such as genetics,
obesity, hormonal fluctuations, a history of blood clots, sun damage and occupations that require standing for long periods
of time. Spider veins, which are broken capillaries that resemble red spots or threads on the skin, are most commonly
found around the nose, cheeks, chin, neck, upper chest and legs.
