What is the best treatment for spider veins in legs?

One of the best treatments of broken veins in the legs is sclerotherapy

Sclerotherapy

What helps with squiggly leg ? Once the valve in the vein fails, there is no way to “fix” it.

Do these veins go away on their own? No veins do not go away on their own.

The definition of sclerotherapy is: the treatment of varicose blood vessels by the injection of an irritant that causes inflammation, coagulation of blood, and narrowing of the blood vessel wall. This is not an uncomfortable procedure, accomplished in the outpatient office setting. It can usually be accomplished in as little as 15 minutes. Some bruising may appear, and this resolves over the next several weeks. We recommend wearing compression stockings afterwards and not lifting weights for a few weeks.

Some people may ask the cost to remove broken veins. If the doppler ultrasound confirms abnormal veins, it is most often covered by insurance. Its best to have that first to see the extent of the problem, then you will know if you meet the required parameters.

Some small veins causes can be alleviated, most can’t. That’s why, without proper treatment, the veins will slowly get worse. Follow this link for spider veins pictures
