Do you notice that your legs feel more tired or swell at the end of the day? The most common vein disorders are varicose and spider veins. Both indicate blood flow irregularities and shouldn’t be ignored. Varicose veins have a bulging, grapevine-like appearance while spider veins form a web-shaped network of small veins, often less than one millimeter in diameter. They are blue, purple, or red and often appear on the thigh and calf. Varicose and spider vein treatments are often non-invasive, virtually pain-free, and result in almost no downtime.
