What Causes Spider Veins?

Spider veins are extremely common – it’s estimated that they affect nearly half of the adult population at some point in their lives – particularly women. Like varicose veins, they are dilated superficial blood vessels that are caused by an increased pressure in the veins but are smaller and closer to the skin. They are often located behind the knee or on the ankle. Although clusters of spider veins around the ankles can be a symptom of a deeper venous issue, they are generally cosmetic in nature and can be easily eliminated with sclerotherapy injections, or in some cases laser treatment.

*Individual results may vary.

Causes of spider veins include:

  • aging
  • family history or a history of blood clots
  • hormonal changes during puberty or menopause, or hormone replacement therapy
  • pregnancy
  • long periods of standing
  • obesity
  • sun exposure (in light-skinned people)

At Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute, we offer free spider vein screenings, where we provide a visual examination and review your medical and family history. Our spider vein treatment will typically require 3-5 sclerotherapy sessions spaced about 1 month apart.

Although the tendency to develop spider veins is hereditary in nature and closely related to the aging process, there are some preventative measures you can undertake, including maintaining a healthy weight, exercising regularly, and avoiding long periods of sitting or standing.
