What are the different types of abnormal veins?

There are three primary types of abnormal veins that can visibly develop throughout our body…

These include:

  • Spider Veins (also known as telangiectasia) are delicate, red, web-like veins that are visibly present on the surface of the leg. These veins are biologically superfluous.
  • Reticular Veins are larger, blue veins that are present deeper below the skin.
  • Varicose Veins are the largest veins that can dysfunction and result in unsightly bulging knots above the surface of the skin. These veins are far easier to treat in their early stages.

At Vein Doctors Group we can provide a range of contemporary treatment options that can reduce or eliminate the presence of unsightly veins without the need for extensive surgery.
