As with most people, I'd like to believe that I'm savvy about most things in life, though the level of savviness can vary based on the topic. But when faced with the subject of spider vein removal, I have to admit that I was stumped. Though I'd heard the word thrown around my entire life and had even used the term in conversation, I really didn't know much about what spider vein removal meant or entailed.
I decided that it was important to know a little bit more about what spider veins were before I dug into the process of getting rid of them. Spider veins, as you might have guessed, are veins that show up close to the surface of the skin and remind you of spider webs. Thinking back on things, I had actually seen them all of my life. Most of the women in my family have had them. They have a red or blue appearance, and even though Although they can appear anywhere on the body, they are most common on the legs and face. Clearly, it was easy to imagine why many people would be a little insecure about the appearance of these veins and why the desire to remove them would be so high.
