I am considering sclerotherapy for my spider veins. If you had this done, were you happy with the results and how long wsa it before your bruises/marks went away??

Thanks!!

I've had it done a few times and am very happy with the results. (Had it done a few times because of extensive spider veins and my doctor liked to keep it to 20 minute sessions.) It's pretty painless except over bony areas. Bruises faded in a little over a week. I have touch-ups every 2-3 years, though I think that will be much better at my goal weight. Overall very easy with great results. Good luck! :)
