Spider Vein Management in Denver & Colorado Springs

What Are Spider Veins?

Spider veins are small blood vessels that are visible on the surface of the skin. They typically appear in red, blue, or purple colors. The underlying cause of spider veins could be indicative of a more serious medical condition – particularly if spider veins are accompanied by pain, itching, heaviness, swelling, or aching.

Possible causes of spider veins include:

  • Weakened or damaged blood valves
  • Burst blood vessels from pressure or sun damage
  • Genetic factors
  • Pregnancy
  • Prolonged periods of sitting or standing
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Previous blood clots

There are many treatment options for spider veins. If you’d like to speak with a vein specialist in Colorado Springs or Denver, call the Albert Vein Institute today at one of our two locations - Denver (303) 857-5111 or Colorado Springs (719) 550-8346 for a consultation.

Varicose Veins or Spider Veins?

Varicose veins and spider veins are similar in that they both result in visible veins on the skin. Spider veins are the less serious of the two vein conditions. Unlike varicose veins, spider veins are usually very small and painless. Varicose veins are typically bulging, deep, and they can appear lumpy or twisted under the skin.

If you have painful or uncomfortable symptoms with noticeable veins, you are most likely dealing with varicose veins. Over time, varicose veins can lead to more serious health conditions and should be treated promptly.
