Chronic venous insufficiency is a condition that is most responsible for spider veins and varicose veins. Left untreated, it can lead to chronic skin discolorations and leg ulcers. Chronic venous insufficiency affects up to 40 percent of people in the United States.

Chronic venous insufficiency occurs when leg veins fail to direct blood flow back towards the heart. Instead, the blood flows backward, causing blood to pool in the legs. This pooling puts pressure on the walls of the veins, which can lead to spider veins, varicose veins, and venous ulcers.
