Are varicose veins dangerous?
Varicose veins are progressive in nature and if left untreated can lead to further issues, such as:
  • Deep-vein thrombosis (DVT), a blood clot that forms in a deep vein
  • Uncomfortable swelling
  • Skin ulcers
What are the differences between spider and varicose veins?

Varicose veins are swollen, twisted, blue colored vessels that bulge just under the skin. They usually develop in the legs and can form in other areas of the body as well. Spider veins are a visible cluster of small, red, blue, or purple vessels just below the skin surface that commonly appear on the thighs, ankles, and calves.
