In brief: Sclero and Laser
Spider veins can be very effectively treated by a combination of superficial laser and injection sclerotherapy, to resolve the visible veins on the surface, as well as the underlying feeding veins that are the source of the problem. Treatment requires multiple sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart, but have no downtime or major inconvenience.
See an experienced phlebologist to ensure appropriate care.

In brief: Sclerotherapy
Although lasers and other devices that apply energy to the veins are frequently used, they rarely give results that are as good as sclerotherapy.
Often there are other larger veins around the spider veins that also need to be treated. Without taking care of the larger ones, your results won't be as good. See a phlebologist (vein expert) for an evaluation and follow their recommendation.
