Chandler, AZ 7/27/12 - A common misconception that people have with veins is that they are all the same but the opposite is actually. Two of the most common visible veins that come to mind are that of varicose and spider veins. Most people know what varicose veins are and know of the pain and discomfort that they cause to those who have them but spider veins are a little less understood.
Spider veins unlike varicose veins rarely cause pain or restless legs. The main problem with spider veins is that people don’t like having to be embarrassed having them on their legs. They are normally blue or red and appear very close to the surface of the skin in a web or branching pattern. This pattern is where they get the name spider vein from. One of the most important things to remember about spider veins verses varicose veins is that most varicose veins may be covered under your insurance, but spider vein treatments are considered purely cosmetic and will probably not be covered by most insurance companies.
If you want to have either your spider veins or varicose veins treated it is important to find a vein clinic that you can trust and will give you the results you are looking for. There are many treatment options depending on the condition of your veins and it is extremely important that you get the best treatment possible for you personally.
