Varicose veins and spider veins are progressive conditions. Without treatment, their cumulative nature will make current vein problems worse and increase the likelihood that new vein problems will develop. Consequently, patients are encouraged to seek treatment early. Likewise, we encourage patients to plan ahead for their treatment, as many modalities require multiple sessions to achieve desired results. The sooner we can treat the problem veins, the better the results, the fewer complications, and the faster you will heal from the procedure.
