Artery TreatmentSpider Veins
Spider veins are smaller versions of varicose veins, which can cause discoloration near the surface of the skin. The causes of spider veins can vary, but the most common are heredity, gender and obesity.
The following symptoms are typically associated with spider veins:

  • Veins that resemble a spider web
  • Dark blue or purple veins
  • Itching around one or more veins

Varicose Veins:
Varicose veins appear when valves become compromised, and the veins become enlarged and appear to bulge near the surface of the skin. Varicose veins are typically only a cosmetic concern, but can be painful.
Signs of varicose veins include:

  • Dark coloration of veins
  • Veins that appear to twist or bulge
  • Achiness in the legs
  • Pain after sitting for a long period of time.

 Deep vein thrombosis:
Unlike varicose veins, which affect the surface level of the skin, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot that forms deep within the body. While lack of motion is a primary contributor to DVT, few people experience major symptoms.
If you experience any of the following signs, seek medical assistance immediately:

  • Swelling in the leg, ankle or feet
  • Pain or cramping in the leg
  • Pale, red or blue discoloration of skin
  • Warmth on affected area.
