Appearing as blue, purple, or red lines on the skin, spider veins are small, damaged veins that form on the legs and face. While they do not cause any harm, some patients wish to remove these veins in order to achieve a clearer complexion. Treatment options available include wearing compression socks or stockings, sclerotherapy, laser treatments, and surgical procedures. Among these treatments, compression socks can help to prevent further spider veins; however, shrinking or eliminating the veins requires cosmetic procedures, such as sclerotherapy, laser treatments, or surgery.
