Spider veins or telangiectasias of the legs is a common problem, particularly affecting women. Small purple or red veins, sometimes called sunburst or starburst vessels because of their appearance, can form anywhere on the leg, from the top of the thigh to the ankle. While these spider veins do not pose any major health problems, they may cause discomfort.
Many people who have spider veins find them unsightly and often attempt to conceal them with clothing or cosmetic cover-ups.
Today a simple treatment called sclerotherapy is successfully being used to correct unwanted spider veins of the legs.
