Spider Veins Appear as Flat, Fine Lines
Unlike varicose veins, spider veins do not usually bulge or swell. And as their name implies, the veins are fine like a spider web.
Spider veins can range in color. Some may appear red while others are purplish or blue.
Sometimes Affecting the Face
Varicose veins tend to develop only on the legs. Spider veins can affect the legs and also the face.
