I have many thin red/purple veins that are approx 2cm in length mainly along the outsides of my thighs and a few on the bottom half of my legs. They do not cause pain and are not raised. What treatment do you think would be most suitable?
I realise you are unable to provide a quote without having seen the veins, but could you give me an idea of the pricing schedule?


Sclerotherapy, with or without ultrasound guidance, would be the most appropriate treatment for your condition . Cost would be about 770 per leg (or 1/2 hour of treatment). Medicare rebate some of this cost
