What are Varicose and Spider Veins?
Some people refer to varicose and spider veins interchangeably as a term for visible veins. However, they have several differences. Visible veins typically appear when vein walls become stretched, causing the vein to enlarge. The stretched vein makes the blood inside visible, resulting in a blue, red, or purple appearance. They can appear on many parts of the body, although the legs and face are the most common.
