Do Veins Grow Back After Removal?

Today, there are plenty of minimally-invasive options available for varicose vein treatment, including ambulatory phlebectomy, laser vein treatment and radiofrequency ablation. The good news: All of these treatments can be exceptionally effective in getting rid of damaged varicose veins. Most patients experience relief from their painful varicose vein symptoms within a few days to a week or so of treatment. But that doesn’t necessarily mean those symptoms can’t or won’t recur.

Ambulatory phlebectomy uses tiny incisions and special instruments to remove the vein during the procedure.
