Vein procedure's are very tricky. I had both spider/vericose veins after pregnacy. I have had ALOT of work done on my legs. I had the saline injections for spider veins done many times............they did fade..........but never fully went away! The problem with any type of veins is.............they can come back in the future! Spider veins are considered "cosmetic" so you pay quite a bit of money for treatment. Vericose veins on the otherhand can be covered by insurance depending how bad they are!
There is Laser Surgery for them now, here is a description:

[B]New technology in laser treatments can effectively treat spider veins in the legs. Laser surgery sends very strong bursts of light onto the vein. This can makes the vein slowly fade and disappear. Lasers are very direct and accurate. So the proper laser controlled by a skilled doctor will usually only damage the area being treated. Most skin types and colors can be safely treated with lasers.

Laser surgery is more appealing to some patients because it does not use needles or incisions. Still, when the laser hits the skin, the patient feels a heat sensation that can be quite painful. Cooling helps reduce the pain. Laser treatments last for 15 to 20 minutes. Depending on the severity of the veins, two to five treatments are generally needed to remove spider veins in the legs. Patients can return to normal activity right after treatment, just as with sclerotherapy. For spider veins larger than 3 mm, laser therapy is not very practical.
