Imagine regaining the freedom to wear what you want.

More than half of American adult women are affected by spider veins. Spider veins are those small and unsightly clusters of red, blue or purple veins that most commonly appear on the thighs, calves and ankles. They are short, uneven lines that resemble spider webs.

Many factors including pregnancy, hormonal changes and genetic influence can contribute to the formation of varicose and spider veins. Spider veins form from high pressure in the venous system. This, in turn, forces the thin walled veins to expand to several times their normal size. The enlargement of these very fine veins results in the formation of spider veins.
