Spider veins, also known as telangiectasia, affect about one out of three women. These tiny (<1mm) red, blue, or purple veins lie in or immediately below the skin’s surface and are commonly found on the thighs, calves, and ankles.
However, they may be seen in other locations like the face and breast. Thankfully, Vein Specialists of the South offers the best treatments available for this vein disease.
The symptoms of varicose veins are often vague leading to a delay in diagnosis. As your leader in comprehensive vein care, we are committed to education of patients like you and your healthcare professionals.
If you experience any of these symptoms, schedule an appointment at Vein Specialists of the South:
Spider Web Pattern: Veins radiating out from a central point
Tree Branch Pattern: Most often seen on the anterior and lateral thigh
Thin Linear Pattern: Typically seen on the medial thigh and inner knee
