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.
