Blue veins can be removed on the legs
Many of these reticular veins appear normal. However, they can be cosmetically removed or eliminated to improve your leg cosmesis.
Sclerotherapy for leg veins
These are very small veins but unfortunaltely, most are on the tibial plateau and microphlebectomy is not the best treatment option. Sclerotherapy would be the best treatment option. Find a certified vein specialist from the ABVLM.
