Spider Veins

Spider and other leg veins develop when the small valves contained within the veins fail to function properly. Spider veins usually appear on the calves, back of the legs and knees.

Causes

Most spider veins are caused by venous hypertension or pregnancy. Some contributing factors include:

  • Genetics
  • Pregnancy
  • Hormones
  • Prolonged sitting or standing
  • Sudden changes in weight
