Frequently Asked Questions

Varicose veins are caused by a failure of the valve of the vein or of the walls of the vein. Blood in the vein accumulates in the lower part of the body, the pressure of the blood in these veins increases, and the veins begin to bulge out of the skin.

Yes, unfortunately spider veins can reappear. The routing of blood through the venous system is a dynamic process; when sclerotherapy eradicates spider veins, the blood that these veins used to carry gets rerouted to other healthy veins. These healthy veins may eventually develop faulty valves and new spider veins can form.

Often it takes years for the new spider veins to reappear. Rarely, it can happen within a few months. Either way, we can handle them and get dramatic improvements.
