Varicose and spider veins are extremely common. They often make their debut in our 30s. By 60, 75% of women and 50% of men will have varicose spider veins. Blame varicose veins on your parents (their genes), your job (sitting or standing for long periods of time), and your kids (the pressure they put on your body in utero). Sitting and standing puts pressure on leg veins, and causes blood to pool.
