The best treatment for spider veins
Vein tablets and compression therapy may relieve symptoms, but they cannot make spider veins and varicose veins disappear. Once the unsightly dilated veins have appeared, they do not go away on their own, especially not with ointments, creams, or sprays.
Guidelines for the treatment of varicose veins do not recommend radio waves (radiofrequency therapy), electric current (electrocautery, electrocoagulation), or light (photothermolysis) for spider veins, as the effects have not been confirmed scientifically.
In principle, small spider veins on the legs can also be treated with a laser. According to the German and international guidelines, micro-sclerotherapy is the treatment of choice for spider veins and small varicose veins. This method of treatment can basically be used for all types of small and large varicose veins.
