Re: Spider Veins
Jun 8, 2001
I have had it done twice and plan to have
it done again this year. Mine was done with
the saline solution. My veins weren't too bad - just quite a few behind the knee and
as I get older I seem to get more of them.
I guess I am lucky - my doctor has charged
me $70.00 at the most but I am in the midwest. It is one of the simplest procedures or it was for me. Just the tiniest sting. It is almost miraculous the
way it works. You see results right away.
I think you will be pleased with the procedure. I am older and notice that it
doesn't work as well as it did l2 years
ago when I first had it done. By that I
mean there is a faint line (don't know how
to explain it) where the vein used to be.
Not nearly as noticable as the spider vein
tho. I am chicken about most procedures but
this one was a piece of cake.

I've had the saline injectable treatments also. Not very expensive, but also not very effective. The spider veins I have are small but noticeable and maybe this treatment didn't work well for me because of their size. I might add that the treatment was done by a reputable Dr.
In the areas where I had the treatment I also noticed that the spider veins actually spread out. Meaning, those injected disappeared but new ones developed in the same area. Needless to say, I am disappointed and in search of something to finally rid me of these eye sores.
