I had a VeinWave treatment about a month ago and a lot of my veins were completely gone, but after about 2 weeks the very same veins refilled and became visible again. Why is that? Will another session grant permanent results?
Why Have the Veins I Had Treated with VeinWave 1 Month Ago Now Refilled?

Veins are unpredictable at best. They can be closed one day, and reopen another week or two later after a treatment. This is unfortunately normal for vein closure even in the best of hands and equipment. Plan on at least 3-4 sessions, and a follow up in a 5-6 month time.
It may be that you need additional treatments to achieve desired results. Most always, regardless of the modality you use, one treatment is not enough.
In my practice, I use Sclerotherapy as the primary modality for treating spider veins. At this time, sclerotherapy is still considered the gold standard for treatment of spider veins.
the product which I use is ASCLERA and so far I had excellent results.
