FAQ

What are varicose veins?
Varicose veins are swollen, enlarged veins that are raised above the surface of the skin. While often seen behind the calves, they can appear anywhere on the leg and are found in a variety of colors: flesh-colored, dark purple, or blue.
What are spider veins?
Spider veins are red or blue branch-like veins that appear closer to the surface of the skin. They can occur anywhere on the leg and are often more noticeable than varicose veins.
What causes varicose veins?
Blood is carried through arteries to the heart and from the heart returned to the rest of the body through the veins. When the one-way valve flaps of veins don’t work properly, blood begins to back up and pool. This causes veins to enlarge and become varicose. The technical terms for this condition are venous reflux or venous insufficiency.
