Matting

Matting is the development of extremely fine networks of spider veins likely to occur on the outer and inner thighs and the cluster of spider veins may appear as a red or purple patch called blushing or matting (telangiectatic matting) that are mistaken for bruises.  Unlike bruises, however, spider vein mattings do not fade with time.  Matting is more common in people with extensive surface veins and in overweight people with poor muscle tone.  Matting can also follow the surgical removal of varicose veins.
