What Causes Spider Veins?
Spider veins are usually small, discolored veins that twist and spread out in webs or branching patterns under the skin. Causes can include genetics, health conditions, pregnancy, hormones, and prolonged sitting or standing. Many people with spider veins have inherited a tendency to develop them, but other factors play a role. The veins become enlarged and visible when the vein walls stretch due to increased pressure.
