Yes veins can recur. Either old veins can reopen or new ones can develop valve problems.
About 15% of patients can recur varicose veins.

There is a recurrence rate after both varicose vein surgery and laser ablation. The report of recurrence varies anywhere from 5 to 15 percent. This recurrence rate depends on many factors, including type of procedure performed, genetic history and expertise of the treating physician.
