Just wondering if anyone has had successful treatment of varicose veins??
I've got one down the inside of my knee/calf which I want to treat before summer 😁

I had laser treatment on some that were cosmetically bothering me (but not bad enough to do anything 'medically' about I guess you'd say). Worked quite well and not painful.

I have shocking leg ones I'm planning on getting stripped in a few years once I don't have such young kids.
The surgical procedure requires you to have elevated legs for 3 days or something crazy.

ETA - Mine was done purely for cosmetic reasons, they gave me no grief, and the Dr. was more than happy to do it...her train of thought is that it's better to get on top of them before they are bad, and causing grief. I did see a surgeon, who refused to do anything because he said that my pelvis was full of varicose veins and they'd come back straight away. My pelvis IS full of them, but it's been 5 years and I've had two separate lots of treatments on one leg, one treatment on the other leg. My vein Dr. informed me that I will need to have tidy ups every few years until I hit menopause, and then the blood flow will reduce to the area, and it will stop. I am happy with this...it's FAR better than having my legs how they were, and my leg before my second treatment was nothing compared to what it looked like before my first treatment.

Looking at non surgical as they aren't 'that' bad but just look bad so it's purely cosmetic.
Did anyone have Sclerotherapy? From what I've seen its either that or laser? And can anyone give an indication of cost?
