Question: Hereditary spider veins


 CityChick - Sat May 30, 2009 5:40 pm

I am a female in her early twenties, and I have spider veins on my legs. My mom, grand mother and older sisters have them, too. However, none of the older women in my family have spider veins on their faces. I would like to know, since they do not have spider veins on their faces, does that mean that i won't get them on my face either, and do all people who have spider veins on their legs also get them on their faces? Thanks a lot.

User avatar Hi,It is dificut to predict but possibly you may not also develop on the face due to the family history of limitation to the limbs.
