Millions of people are troubled by unsightly veins. These veins resemble a spider, or a star, with several tiny veins radiating from the center point. They appear like a web-like maze, fine separate lines, or like branches spreading from a single tree trunk. These reddish, bluish or purple thread-like lines can develop on any part of the body, but mostly appear on the thighs or calves. Spider veins are superficial to the skin and are a lot smaller as compared to varicose veins. Since they are dark and very visible, they are a major embarrassment for women.
