Q: How long does it take to get rid of spider veins? Can I do it in the office? Does insurance cover the procedure?

What our experts say:

On average it takes 3-4 treatments and we do them about a month apart, in the office. Insurance doesn't cover Spider veins are considered cosmetic. Insurance occasionally will cover, not always, painful varicose, the big blue veins, but not spider veins.
