How do you treat "blushing?" I would describe this as blotchiness on the legs.
Spider Vein Treatment -2 answers
When viewed under a magnifier, you can see patches of small spider veins (one on top of the other). I don't know if "blushing" is the appropriate word. I've tried ELOS technology (IPL) Dornier laser treatment but have not been able to clear this blotchiness. Any suggestions?

Are large veins usually injected during sclerotherapy for spider veins?
Spider Vein Treatment -8 answers
I had sclerotherapy for spider veins performed two weeks ago on my leg. I have been in a great deal of pain since. All my sore spots are large veins in my foot/ankle. On a follow-up, I was told they injected them. When I asked why, I was told that every vein that they can see can be injected in the foot since I have so many. I have a hard time believing this and I now don't trust them. Is any of this true? Also, with so many large veins injected, how long before I can walk without pain?
