Up to 50% of people have spider veins. These tiny damaged veins often spread like a spiderweb or tree roots, and when they occur in visible areas, they can become unwelcome. Dr. Robert Cutchen offers treatments to decrease or eliminate the appearance of spider veins. He can also diagnose and treat any underlying venous conditions.
What are Spider Veins?
Spider veins form when blood pools in small veins close to the skin’s surface. This pooled blood can cause the affected veins to look red, blue, or purple. Most spider veins are harmless, but clusters of spider veins around the ankles can indicate a possible problem with venous circulation. Spider veins typically occur on the face and legs but can also appear in other areas such as the chest.
