Varicose veins, veins visible on the legs, affect up to 50% of people in the United States. These veins are divided into two groups based on their size: (1) Spider veins which are less than 1 mm in diameter and are typically a red-purple color; and (2) Reticular veins which are 1-3 mm in diameter and are typically a blue-green color.
Varicose veins develop based on genetics, age, pregnancies, obesity, and even professions with frequent standing. For most people, varicose veins are benign and do not cause problems; they are simply a cosmetic concern especially in warmer months when shorts, dresses, skirts, and bathing suits are worn.
