Why you may Want to Wait before Treating Spider Veins

Not all spider veins are the same.

For most patients they are large and appear to be a pattern in one or both legs. They are definitely candidates for treatment right away.

For other patients they may have the smallest of patches that look like broken capillaries. It may be very noticeable to you, but barely noticeable to others even under strong sunlight. Sclerotherapy is very useful but sometimes when they are very small, treating them can be challenging as they are very small. Laser treatments can be used, but even they are not as effective at keeping them gone for good, specifically on the legs.

In these cases, it may be better to wait, until they become a little more prominent, before treatment is commenced.
