Visible veins on the legs are referred to as varicose veins. Varicose veins are divided into two groups based on their size: (1) Spider veins which are less than 1 mm in diameter and (2) Reticular veins which are 1-3 mm in diameter. Spider veins are typically red to purple in color while reticular veins are blue to green in color.
Up to 50% of individuals in the United States develop varicose veins. Varicose veins are commonly passed down from generation to generation. Other causes include age, pregnancies, obesity, and 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.
