Yes, provided the feeding vein (i.e. varicose veins and feeder reticular bluish veins above that are are treated first. Usually, treatment of ankle and foot spider veins should be left for the last session of sclerotherapy.

It's a good treatment for the small ankle veins.

That is the treatment that we would use, we feel it works the best in comparison to other options, such as laser.

It really depends on the type of veins. For tiny red veins, I believe the best option is veinwave. For the slightly larger red and blue spider veins sclerotherapy is usually the best. Sometimes laser can be used but it hurt more and takes more treatments.

When someone has small spider veins around the foot and ankle, we probe to see if she is having any leg aching, cramps or fatigue. These vessels frequently are associated with a problem in a superficial vein trunk. An ultrasound evaluation of the leg might be needed to clarify the problem. If the trunk vein is functioning normally, then our practice is to use a surface pinpoint laser to trace over the small veins, and use limited injections of sclerotherapy at the same time. Two to three treatment episodes are usually needed.

It really depends on the type of veins. For the small red veins, I believe the best option is veinwave. For the larger spider veins sclerotherapy or laser are relatively similar however laser usually hurts more.

What is the best treatment for veins around the foot and ankle depends on several factors-size of the veins, reflux in the saphenous system and experience of the treating physician. The options are sclero, laser or microphlbectomy.

Depending on the size and location of the veins, sclerotherapy, microphlebectomy or laser may be best.
