Spider veins, as the name suggests, appear in a web-like fashion on your legs (or anywhere else on your body). These small, dilated blood vessels are generally flat and red but vary in colour from pink to blue and even purple. Varicose veins are typically larger, swollen blood vessels and may be connected to other conditions such as clots or thrombosis.
Many factors such as pregnancy and family history can lead to the emergence of leg veins, which are also impacted by female hormones.

Echosclerotherapy is an ultrasound guided injection technique for the treatment of varices. The purpose of echosclerotherapy is to sclerose (to close) the surface veins near their site of origin. The intent of the treatment is to replace the previously needed surgeries.
This treatment uses electrical currects to seal the vein.
