Once we treat the large vein decease, it's really a permanent thing. When the laser fiber seals up the vein, it really is very unlikely for to open up again. When it comes to spider veins, I tell patients, I can't change your genetic predisposition to getting them. I can make the ones you have go away but it's likely you'll get some more down the road. It's tough to say how long they last, it just depends on how long it takes for a patient to develop new veins. Most patients though, it's taken them 20 years to develop what they have so they certainly aren’t going to get everything back the next year. Most people will come in maybe every few years to get a touch up session but really it's a long lasting result they get.
