What are spider veins?

Sometimes known as thread or broken veins, spider veins are small clusters of red or blue veins that appear on the face and legs. They are completely harmless, but can leave people feeling very self-conscious. Studies show that spider veins can become more visible as a result of ageing than lines and wrinkles, leading many people to take action. Spider veins typically appear on the nose and cheeks. Usually one appears as a red dot or line, but can sometimes cause redness to the surrounding skin, leaving you with rosy, flushed cheeks. As you age there becomes less collagen in your skin, leaving the skin thinner and veins appearing more visible. Hormonal changes, sun-damage, rosacea, alcohol and smoking can all also accentuate the appearance of spider veins.
