Varicose veins are superficial veins that are dilated and can bulge under the skin. They occur when vein walls are weak and valves do not close properly (venous insufficiency). Varicose veins often run in families and are more common in women, but can occur in men as well. They may make you feel self-conscious about the appearance of your legs, but can cause symptoms, such as aching, heaviness and throbbing.

What are spider veins?

Spider veins are also dilated blood vessels in the skin, but they are much smaller in diameter, and tend to be purple or red in color. These can bulge and be unsightly, but can also cause symptoms.
