Spider Veins are small superficial blood vessels. These small spider veins appear red or purple and lie superficially on the surface of the skin. These spider veins can be treated with Sclerotherapy or laser treatments depending on the size of the vessel.
Spider veins are a mini version of varicose veins. They are close to the surface of the skin and appear on the legs, face and breasts.
