Thread veins are little blood vessels which are visible on the top layer of our skin. Thanks to their appearance they are commonly known as ‘thread veins’ or ‘spider veins’. They are very common and affect up to 80% of adults, with the most common area being the legs. Thread veins can vary in colour, usually appearing red or pink, but they can look darker if they are bigger with a blue or purple colour.
Many people get thread veins because they stand for long periods of time, most days of the week. It is also very common during and after pregnancy.
These type of veins are harmless so there is nothing to worry about. However some people can feel self conscious of their appearance.
