Spider veins are dilated blood vessels that have a blue or red color and form in clusters that have a web-like appearance. Spider veins most commonly form on the legs and thighs and in areas like behind the knees. They typically form due to increased pressure in the blood vessels and occur more commonly in older individuals.

When spider veins form close to the surface of the skin, they can be a very noticeable aesthetic issue. Some people may also experience swelling, a feeling of heaviness, and fatigue in the legs due to the presence of spider veins.

Spider veins can be eliminated with treatments like sclerotherapy. The treatment involves injecting a sclerosing solution directly into the veins, which closes off the veins and destroys them.

If you are embarrassed or are experiencing discomfort due to spider veins, contact Beyond Beautiful to schedule a consultation for your sclerotherapy treatment. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sherif Khattab will provide you with excellent care.
