Sclerotherapy vein treatment should not be painful and if done correctly and should be permanent.1 In some people with strong family histories of vein problems, new veins may appear in the future. The initial course of vein treatments may take 3 – 5 sessions, depending upon how your particular veins respond. This is variable. People will often come back in the future for “touch up” vein treatments. Treatments are usually 3-5 weeks apart.
The most important consideration in the treatment of spider veins is to make sure these tiny surface veins are not being supplied by larger “feeder” veins (reticular veins) from below.
