Vein problems that till recently were treated with massage and stockings have been receiving surgical treatments for long term solution and to get rid of pain and numbness. These treatments are more common among women than men and since 2000 the number of people undergoing varicose vein surgeries has gone up by several thousands. The overall cost of vein treatment varies between locations and also depends on the doctor’s experience. The general cost is between two to three hundred for treatment in both legs to several hundred dollars for other parts of the body. Usually laser vein treatments are more expensive than sclerotherapy.

Depending on the situation two or three treatment sessions may be required that is carried out within a gap of six to eight weeks. At the MedSpa, doctor will check to find the root of the problem and if blood circulation is poor from feeder vein then treatment will be first given to the feeder vein by endovenous laser or sclerotherapy to stop blood flow.
Cost of Sclerotherapy
This type of treatment for removal of varicose veins costs will vary depending on the siaze of the area and how many sessions are carried out. The cost varies on factors like the number of veins treated and conditions of the veins.
