The veins in my legs, arms, and chest are visible but they don't hurt. Is Clarivein a good treatment option?

I'm shy to wear short pants because of these veins.

Clariven is for deeper veins, not superficial veins in/under the skin. In some people, their veins are more visible but these are completely normal. We do, on a limited basis, treat some of these but you will not be able to treat all of them. It is also possible that some other veins, in time, will also become more noticeable.
We do treat chest veins if very visible for brides-to-be and women who have had breast augmentation (which can make some veins more visible) etc. This should only be done by experience practitioners. The results are very nice.
Again, if your veins are visible all over your body, you can only treat a limited area. I would recommend having an ultrasound on your legs by a board certified vascular surgeon who specializes in varicose veins to ensure there is no underlying cause of your leg veins being more noticeable.

I have noticed most doctors shy away from Venaseal or Clarivien, and always offer EVLA or EVLT? Aren't the other procedures less invasive? Is there an insurance issue there?

Still have pain and bulging. Had GSV done by previous surgeon who performed microphlebectomies, but my veins still hurt. They did another ultrasound and saw my LSV had VI! They did ClariVein from my ankle up to where the other doctor began below my knee. I have some numbness near my ankle, which was why he did ClariVein and not VNUS, but I am numb anyway. Now, calf veins are still bulging and I have some new ones! Nurse said come back in six months but they tingle. What should I do?

It looks like it's drying up, but not actually. My doctor says it's normal but it's been around 3 months and I see no improvement. I'm on blood thinners for last 40 days as my doc stated there is a clot. It now looks like the clot is gone because I have no swelling or pain apart from the intense pain due to the wound. I'm not sure what do I do. I have spent a lot to get cured but unfortunately things have not worked.
