In brief: Sclerotherapy

Spider veins of legs are usually treated with sclerotherapy.
Evlt is a minimally-invasive alternative to stripping, used to treat saphenous vein reflux [ found on ultrasound] that leads to varicose vein problems. Surface varicose veins are also treated with sclerotherapy or phlebectomy.

In brief: Yes

Both varicose and spider veins can be treated with sclerotherapy while evlt is used to treat (close) the vein that is causing the varicose veins to form..
.Generally due to malfunction of the valves of the vein.

In brief: Spiders with sclera.

Spider veins are treated with sclerotherapy and varicose veins are treated by laser ablation called evlt, elvs or even elas.
Ablation of the saphenous vein refluxing valves can also be done with a radio frequency catheter and this is called vnus.

In brief: Vein treatment

Spider veins of legs are usually treated with sclerotherapy; injection of a medication into the unwanted veins in order to cause them to close & disintegrate.
Evlt is a minimally-invasive alternative to stripping, used to treat certain types of underlying (below the skin surface) varicose veins that are found on ultrasound. Surface varicose veins are treated with sclerotherapy or phlebectomy.

In brief: 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.
