Spider veins are usually a sign of venous disease and are connected to larger veins. Apart from an unpleasant look, there is no associated serious symptoms with spider veins. Spider veins like varicose veins are usually hereditary.

Treatment of spider veins are minimally invasive and quick but this can only be done after a full assessment, investigation and management of underline varicose veins. Sclerotherapy is a successful and effective treatment for spider veins. Spider veins can reoccur after years that can be retreated in a vein surgical clinic.
