What are Spider Veins?
Spider veins, also known as telangiectasia, are networks of red, blue, or purple lines that appear on the surface of the skin. They get their name from their resemblance to a spider’s web. They commonly occur on the legs, but can also make an appearance on the abdomen or even the face. Different treatment options are available to banish these veins and give you clearer skin that you don’t have to hide under clothing or makeup.
