What are Spider Veins And How to Get Rid of Them?

by | Jul 22, 2019 | Medical

 Many people who have spider veins may feel grateful that they aren’t varicose veins, but that doesn’t mean that anyone likes having discolored lines on their legs. As the name suggests, spider veins form a web of deep red or dark blue veins on your legs. They often worsen as a person ages, but they can occur in a person of any age. There may be a couple of different reasons that spider veins happen, but the ultimate reason always comes back to the blood.
When the veins begin to experience extra pressure due to a blood backup, spider veins can develop. The reason that the blood backup occurs is usually because of a valve issue. The valves are there to regulate the flow of blood, keeping it on a steady upwards route towards the heart.
However, if a valve stops functioning or begins to malfunction by pushing blood down instead of up, the blood will inevitably begin to back up. This backed up blood strains the veins and causes them to expand. This, in turn, makes the veins push against the skin to reveal the spider web pattern.
