Spider veins on the legs have a red (telangiectasia) or bluish (venules) colour; they are a common problem which particularly affect women. Unfortunately, these veins are often unsightly and attempting to conceal them with clothing or cosmetics are not always successful, in many cases people change their lifestyle to avoid exposing their legs. Larger leg veins may be raised above the skin surface and may be associated with some aching.
