What are spider veins a symptom of?

Spider veins are small, thin, twisted veins visible on the skin’s surface. They are typically red, blue, or purple and can appear anywhere on the body. Spider veins are often a symptom of chronic venous insufficiency, a type of vein problem caused by weakened valves in the veins that make it difficult for the blood to travel through them, resulting in a backup of blood in the veins. Spider veins are usually not dangerous, but if left untreated, chronic venous insufficiency can lead to complications such as skin ulcers and visible varicose veins.
