What are Varicose Veins?

Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are large bulging veins caused by defective values allowing blood to pool backwards in your veins.

Spider Veins

Spider veins are typically small and more delicate than varicose veins typically red to purple and color and are usually both a medical and cosmetic issue. Both can usually worsen without treatment.

The main difference between varicose and spider veins are the size and intensity of the veins. They are often caused by many of the same factors, but spider veins usually aren’t as intense in terms of symptoms as varicose veins are. One of the things they do have in common is they both should be treated as soon as possible to prevent the issue from becoming worse.
