The veins treated are generally resolved, however other veins can occasionally return after years, and can be retreated if needed.

Veins that are treated and properly closed are permanently treated. They will be absorbed by the body. Any patient may develop new veins. That is variable. But with follow up vein disease can be controlled without too much difficulty.

95% long term succes but occasionally smaller ones can appear. Usually can be treated much easier with injections.

Over 90 % of the time a vein closed by endovenous thermal ablation stays closed. This treats the underlying cause of the varicose veins which will occationally shrink the associated varicose veins following the procedure if done alone. If you also have a microphlebectomy to remove the varicose veins, that is permanent. You will always be at risk for forming other "leaking" veins which can cause new varicose veins.

Endovenous ablation eliminates the refluxing source of the varicose veins. The recurrence rate is extremely low-around 3 to 5 %. However, if varicose veins do recur, a new venous ultrasound should be done to look for the source of the veins.

Laser ablation is very successful at treating varicose veins, with excellent long term results. The likelihood of veins coming back from the vein that's been treated is exceptionally low. However, there is no guarantee that you could not develop varicose veins from some other source, or other vein, in your leg. This would be more determined by your genetics than anything else.
