The Primary Factors That Can Cause Spider Veins

Have you noticed small web-like clusters of red, blue, or purple veins start to form in areas like your legs and face? These small clusters of veins are known as spider veins. This condition is very common and can be caused by multiple factors.

Hormonal imbalances or shifts can cause a number of complications within the body and can contribute to the formation of spider veins. Weight gain can also cause this issue. Pregnant women who are currently experiencing rapid changes in their weight and hormone levels may notice spider veins forming around this time.
