ROADMAPS (Spider Veins)

If you see thread-like veins close to the surface of the skin on your feet, you are looking at spider veins, or telangectasias. Weakening of the valves in your leg veins can cause blood flow to become sluggish and pool, creating spider veins. Resembling tree branches, they can appear in small or large patches. Heredity, exposure to the sum, and hormonal changes can trigger the onset of spider veins in the feet. Added causes are pregnancy, prolonged standing, and a sedentary lifestyle. Treatments to rid the feet of the clusters include laser therapy, which can shrink and even eradicate spider veins entirely, and injections of sodium chloride, referred to as sclerotherapy.
