Possibly: If you do not have reflux of one of the deeper veins (you would need an ultrasound to know) than sclerotherapy (injections) or sometimes a stab phlebectomy will do well - it depends on the size of the veins.

Possibly venous: You may have venous insufficiency, or venous reflux, of the leg veins or pelvic veins. Ask for an ultrasound of your leg veins to check for it - it is different than looking for a clot - make sure you are sitting or standing during the scan. You would need an mrv to look for dilated pelvic veins.

Both/neither: Vnus is essentially now Venefit since it was bought and "renamed." No difference. Other modalities, such as laser fiber ablation, are also just as minimally invasive, maybe more so since they use a slightly smaller catheter - but we're talking about a difference of 1.5mm. The technique is more or less identical.
