Is evlt or sclerotherapy better for the treatment ofvaricose/spider veins?

Usually both. Spider veins are typically treated with sclerotherapy. If there are varicose veins, an ultrasound should be done to determine if poorly functioning underlying veins are present. If so, often evlt (endogenous laser) is used to treat them. In some cases ultrsound-guided sclerotherapy is done to the underlying veins. Surface varicose veins are treated with ambulatory phlebecomty and/or sclerotherapy.
Yes, kind of. Evlt, laser treatment, is generally used to treat the source or cause of the varicose veins....The vein with malfunctioning valves which leads to the formation of varicose vein. Sclerotherapy, the injection of a substance to close the vein, is used to treat both varicose veins and spider veins.
RFa and EVLT. Sclerotherapy of spider veins using detergents polidocanol and sotradecol works well. The superficial axial veins gsv and ssv can be ablated using rfa and evlt. The ropy varicose veins can be removed with microphlebectomy methods, and all of the above can be completed as an office based procedure, without any sedation, under local anesthesia.
May need both. Depends on your anatomy. If you have varicose veins, then u often also have venous insufficiency (will need ultrasound to prove) & this will might require a ELVT or radiofrequency ablation if a saphenous vein in your leg has failed. If you have no saphenous failure then EVLT not needed. Sclerotherapy is useful for spider veins & many cases of varicose, & can be useful for perforator reflux as well.

Do they treat varicose or spider veins with evlt or sclerotherapy?

Yes. Spider veins are most commonly treated with sclerotherapy. If you have varicose veins, a combination of things is often used. With varicose veins, it important to have an ultrasound of your veins to see if there is any underlying vein trouble that is causing your visible veins. The underlying veins are treated with evlt. The rest can be treated with phlebectomy, sclerotherapy, or both. Read more...
