What is the best over-the-counter treatment medicine for red facial spider veins?..I don't have that many just a few

Sclerotherapy: Is it true that after treatment of spider veins that the patient should not go in direct sunlight or exercise for 3 weeks afterwards?

Surface varicose veins are treated with ambulatory phlebecomty and/or sclerotherapy. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
