Treatment for Spider Veins of the Legs
For the veins that you have shown, either injection by sclerotherapy or laser treatment should work.
To be sure, see two or more board certified and experienced plastic surgeons who work commonly with lasers in your area for a full and complete evaluation.
I hope this helps.

Vein Removal Explained
If the vein is less than 3 millimeters, laser treatments typically work better for vein removal. This treatment option for leg veins targets the blood vessels underneath and singes them, which basically kills the vein. I prefer the Nd:YAG laser (1064 nanometer) for smaller vein removal. Ask your doctor if laser treatment is available and suitable for your cluster of spider veins.
