WHAT ARE SPIDER VEINS?
At Boston Vein Care we see the full spectrum of venous disease from spider veins to varicose veins and venous wounds. Sometimes patients come to us with not knowing that spider veins could be a telltale sign of underlying venous insufficiency. If spider veins are associated with symptoms or have come back after previous treatments, it is important to look for underlying cause and it may not be a mere cosmetic concern.
