Spider Veins

Visible smaller veins of the legs are popularly called "capillaries" - those are smaller surface veins, which are usually reddish or bluish-purple color. Listed veins are divided into two groups - 2mm width - telangiectasia, spider veins or bristle veins, and those of 2 to 4 mm wide - reticular veins or varicose veins.

"Capillaries" for many people are primarily aesthetic deficit, but some may feel the pain or discomfort in the legs, and night cramps.
