I have large blue leg veins and I want to get sclerotherapy. What's the typical cost, downtime, risks, etc? Thank you!

Hi Jessica

Sclerotherapy does in fact work.  It has been a staple for many years.  It tends to work best on the smaller veins, but can work on larger ones too.  Sometimes multiple treatments are needed, and of course, you may always develop new ones over time.
