To successfully treat leg veins, it is best to treat the larger insufficient blood vessels and then proceed to the medium and small vessels, because the bigger ones feed the smaller ones.
- Varicose veins are enlarged veins that can appear twisted and bulging. They are a sign of a dysfunctional circulatory system or chronic venous disease and can lead to pain and discomfort. Varicose veins are most commonly found in the legs, but they can appear in other areas of the body as well. The most common causes of varicose veins are obesity, genetics, pregnancy and cardiac problems.
- Reticular veins, also known as feeder veins, are the dilated blue and green veins beneath the skin surface. These veins are enlarged due to an increase in pressure. They are generally hereditary. Reticular veins can exist independently but can also be the underlying problem that gives rise to surface spider veins.
- Spider veins (also called telangiectasia) are clusters of tiny blood vessels that develop close to the surface of the skin.
