Dr. Navarro recalls how many sclerotherapy treatments a woman will need before she sees her spider veins fade away.
How many sessions of treatment you will need will depend on how many spider veins do you have, the degree of perfection do you want, and how fast your body heals. Now once we have injected all your spider veins, still the body will need to heal and you will need two or three weeks, four weeks, for the black and blues to go away and slowly all the spider veins to disappear.
So you will see changes starting the same day, the following day, but the end result will take between three and four weeks, sometimes even more, depending how the treatment sessions are spaced because the body needs to heal. There’s nothing we can do about that.
