What are the best varicose veins laser treatments? For the large truncal veins, the endovenous laser treatment generally works the best: greater saphenous vein, small saphenous vein, anterior accessory saphenous vein, and the posterior accessory saphenous vein. For small and medium sized veins, sclerotherapy is our treatment of choice. When spider and telangiectatic veins are too tiny for the sclerotherapy needles to enter as seen on the face, chest, and back, I have the fastest and best results using the VeinGogh Ohmic Thermolysis System, which uses a hair thin probe to coagulate the blood, causing its collapse and total destruction. Unlike a laser, this can be used on any type of skin and has fewer complications and side effects.
