Spider veins - also known as spider angioma - are smaller than vericose veins that most commonly occur on the legs of patients. Spider veins form red, purple, and blue patters that are visible on the suface of the skin.
Spider veins result from the condition of venous reflux, which is an obstruction of normal bloodflow through a person's veins. This lack of circulation casues blood to pool near the skin suface, forming unsightly patches of veins that may have a tree-like pattern. Spider veins are not a a sign of a serious medical condition, but many who are fed up with their unsightly appearance choose to seek treatment.
