Not sure if you have thread veins?Thread veins are tiny blood vessels that run close to the surface of the skin. They look like fine red, or sometimes purple, wiggly lines and are also known as spider veins and broken veins. They tend to develop as we age and our skin and blood vessels become less elastic.

Although there is no obvious cause, hormonal changes associated with pregnancy and the menopause is thought to relate to their development. Because of this, women are more prone to them than men. Around one in five women in their 20s have thread veins, which rises to half by the age of 40. By the age of 70 over 70 per cent of women have some thread veins. However, nearly all of us are prone to developing thread veins as we age.
