Foam Sclerotherapy Questions

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.
Foam Sclerotherapy - 1 month ago
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?
