Normal To Treat The "Main Veins" During Procedure for Sclerotherapy Rather Than The Spider Veins?
I am scheduled to have sclerotherapy on the spider veins in my legs. A nurse practitioner for a plastic surgeon is doing the procedure. She said she would need to treat the "main" veins feeding the spider veins. I have seen nothing in the literature noting the need for this. Is this accurate? I don't want unneccesary or dangerous work done. I thought just the spider veins would be treated (?). Can you advise? Thanks!
It depends on what is meant by "Main Veins".
Sclerotherapy technique - feeder veins first
Who does the best job of sclerotherapy?
