Is laser a better option?
Doctor Answers 5
Sclerotherapy is an excellent option
Start with a vein ultrasound to document the amount of venous insuffficiency. Sclerotherapy is a very fruitful treatment if done correctly.
Spider vein treatment.
The gold standard for spider vein treatment is sclerotherapy. Frequently more than one treatment is necessary. The smaller the spider veins the harder they are to treat. There are different types of sclerotherapy solutions and different concentrations. See a vein specialist who is experienced in sclerotherapy I would retry sclerotherapy before switching to laser.
