I have had numerous schlerotherapy treatments. Probably at least 7 treatments. It has never helped and two times it actually made things worse. I had one spot where I had hardly anything, and my doctor, who was trying not to miss anything, treated that area too. Now, (and right after) I have a huge mass of broken veins. From a few feet away it looks like a big bruise. I am so bummed as I do not know how to make things better and I don't feel like I can wear shorts anymore.
