Is it truly possible to have your spider veins gone in one sclerotherapy treatment?
Doctor Answers 5
Sclerotherapy - 1 or more sessions ?
1) experience, 2) technique (foam or traditional), chemical solution chosen (saline, STS, etc), concentration of chemical used, whether or not adequate compression is used, timing of compression (debated in the literature) and your body's innate abiility to heal (recanalize sclerosed veins).

Bottom line, in general expect to require at least one additional round of injections before you get the results you desire.
