I would like to have an opinion from a dermatologist This

Customer Question

I would like to have an opinion from a dermatologistThis spot appeared on my girlfriend's leg (an overnight, I must say) and when she asked her dermatologist, she said that it is varicose veins, and that she should use any cream with caffeine or coffee to treat this. Is this true? Is there another option for varicose veins? I'll attach a picture to show what it looks like.
