Foam Sclerotherapy Questions

Is it typical for a doctor to recommend thermal ablation after sclerotherapy?
Foam Sclerotherapy - 5 days ago5 answers
Twenty days ago I had sclerotherapy on my great saphenous vein. Unfortunately, the vein did not close, although I had one more sclerotherapy injection in the following days. Now, my doctor says that it is necessary to close the vein with thermo ablation. What's your position about that? Is this typical? It is possible to perform a thermo ablation after a sclerotherapy injection? Thanks a lot.

Foam sclerotherapy vs. other forms of sclerotherapy and hemosiderin staining
Foam Sclerotherapy - 2 months ago3 answers
Whenever I get foam sclerotherapy it results in staining that takes 1-1.5 years to fade. I recently had sclerotherapy treatment done that wasn't foam on the right side of my leg (plan is to do the left next week) to treat blue reticular veins - believed they were "feeding" my spider veins. My spider veins are light due to past laser treatments on them. I was told foam sclerotherapy is more likely to cause staining. From your experience, is this true? Also, what can I do to prevent the staining?

My veins look and feel worse after I had foam Sclerotherapy. I had the procedure 2 months ago and they feel hard, are throbbing and very pigmented.

20 years ago I had liquid Sclerotherapy and was bandaged for one month. The veins weregone when removed.Two months after my foam sclerotherapy my veins are still there. I know brown pigmentation takes a while to fade. The only difference is that this time I was only given compression stockings, not tight, to wear for 1 week. I've been wearing my own (stronger) stocking for 7 weeks, but no improvement. I'm very disappointed. Will the veins ever improve?
