Superficial vein

Superficial vein is a vein, close to the surface of the body. This differs from deep veins. Superficial veins are not paired with an artery, unlike the deep veins, which have an artery with the same name close by. Superficial veins are important physiologically for cooling of the body; when the body is too hot the body shunts blood from the deep veins to the superficial veins, to facilitate heat transfer to the surroundings. Superficial veins can be seen under the skin; those below the level of the heart tend to bulge out. This can be witnessed in the hand: raised above the heart and the blood should drain. Veins become more visually prominent when lifting heavy weight after a period of proper strength training. Physiologically, the superficial veins are not as important as the deep veins and are sometimes removed in a procedure called vein stripping, used to treat varicose veins; the United States Department of Health and Human Services makes the following distinction, "Spider veins can be seen under the skin, but they do not make the skin bulge out like varicose veins do."
