Does the Veinwave procedure work better than sclerotherapy?

Veinwave . 2 answers . 1 year ago

I am going to have my spider veins worked on this spring, and I am interested in the Veinwave procedure. Does it work better than sclerotherapy? I had sclerotherapy maybe 5-6 years ago and it seemed painful.

It depends on the veins. Generally, sclerotherapy works best for the usual spider veins. Veinwave, on the other hand, is very good for facial veins and tiny leg veins.

Veinwave is different than sclerotherapy. I work only on the smallest thread veins. Sclerotherapy can take multiple treatments but it should not be painful, especially if the doctor is using the newer sclerosant medications.

I've had three sclerotherapy treatments done this year, with the last session about one month ago. I still have noticeable areas on my legs. I was told the treatments haven't been effective because the problematic veins are too small. Would Veinwave work better? If so, how long after sclerotherapy do I have to wait before having the procedure?
