Spider and Varicose Veins range from small to large, raised, swollen blood vessels that twist and turn. They can appear to be red, purple or blue and are often found in the legs and face. Some people experience painful symptoms such as swelling, throbbing, aching, burning, itching, heaviness, tingling or cramping. Causes include genetics, strenuous jobs requiring excessive standing, obesity, hormonal fluctuations, blood clots and other medical conditions. Laser treatments are known to use light as a method to penetrate the veins to make them collapse and be less visible. Radiofrequency uses heat to do the same.
