(Venous Telangiectasias) are small, 1 millimeter, vessels located near the surface of the skin. These vessels are red/blue/purple in color and appear as short, thin lines resembling the branching pattern of a tree or a spider web. Spider veins are commonly located on the thighs, calves, ankles, and feet. Spider veins can be symptomatic with complaints of aching pain, burning, and itching being reported among patients. Some spider veins can occasionally develop spontaneous bleeding requiring medical attention.
