All you can do with over the counter products is to use a cover up make up, as Dr. Nguyen suggested.

Dr. John Landi answered:

What are my treatment options for spider veins?

Several options.

Cimg0001
There are several options to treat spider veins. The gold standard is sclerotherapy where a solution in injected into the veins to dissolve them. Other options are topical laser, IPL(infrared pulsed light), and fine needle radio frequency such as Ellman, VeinWave and VeinGogh. All spider vein treatments usually require several cycles and are well tolerated.

Dr. James H. Isobe answered:

Can varicose and spider veins return after treatment?

Yes

Thrombosis
Varicose veins can return following recanalization of treated incompetent great saphenous or small saphenous veins. Incompetent perforators can result in recurrent VV. Sclerotherapy of spider veins will clear the existing ones, and new ones can form within a year or two, thus advising maintenance sclerotherapy in all. Neovascularization can be seen after surgical treatment of venous problems.

Dr. Ted King answered:

What is best treatment for spider veins? Isit permanent?]

There is no cure

Varicose_veins
I completely agree with Dr. Rosen. It is important to remember, though, treatment makes veins go away. However, there is no guarantee that you won't get more veins in the future. Varicose veins and spider veins occur primarily because of genetics and no one can change that. That means that you have a tendency toward developing bad veins and you will always have that tendency.

Which is better to get rid of spider veins: sclerotherapy or laser treatment?

Sclerotherapy Best

Spider_veins
Spider veins on the leg are best treated by sclerotherapy. Most vein specialists will treat leg spider veins with sclerotherapy because it not only treats the tiny spider veins but the slightly larger and slightly deeper veins that feed the spider veins. Lasers cannot treat the feeder veins and so cannot completely treat the problem.

Sclerotherapy for varicose veins good? What about treatment options for spider veins?

It works for both

Spider_angiomas
Sclerotherapy is an effective treatment of varicose veins. It is best used on the surface veins after any underlying saphenous vein insufficiency[ reflux] has been treated. Saphenous reflux is best treated with thermal or laser ablation. Sclerotherapy is also an effective and versatile treatment for spider veins. laser can also be used on the smallest veins.

Spider veins can cause aching pain and discomfort. What are my options for treatment?

Good evaluation

Veins
First you should have a good evaluation by a vein specialist. If your problem is just spider veins, they can succesfully be treated with sclerotherapy.

Dr. Joel Gotvald answered:

Do varicose veins disappear with laser treatment?? i have spider veins and larger veins

Varicose Vein Laser

Laser
Yes. There are multiple types of vein lasers & they tend to be very effective for curing vein diseases. An endovenous laser treatment, known as EVLT, is used to treat varicose veins. Other types of surface lasers are used to remove spider veins. Often combined treatment are used, i.e. laser and sclerotherapy vein injections. Make sure you see a vein specialist (vascular surgeon) to discuss.

Dr. Ted King answered:

How long does sclerotherapy or laser therapy effects last following spider vein treatment? When do the spider veins usually return?

Nothing is permanent

Laser_therapy
If you don't have untreated underlying vein disease causing the spiders, they should go away for good. However, your tendency to get spider veins is inherited, so you will always run the risk of developing new spider veins with time (1-10 years). The ones that are treated will go away permanently but nothing can guarantee that you won't get other spider veins in the future. It's in your DNA.
