Q: Once treated, will varicose veins reappear?
A: Effectively treated varicose veins do not come back. The predisposition to form varicose veins cannot be cured, however. Over time, patients may develop new varicose veins in the same or in other areas. Because we treat the “source” of these veins the progression is greatly slowed. New veins that form tend to be less severe and are more easily dealt with. Usually a “touch-up” treatment to remove new veins will be needed periodically.
