This is a middle aged woman who had sclerotherapy. The "after" photo was six weeks after therapy. Notice the mild darkening of the skin where the veins used to be. This darkening resolves in six to twelve months. The best time to have your sclerotherapy done is in the fall and winter months so that the skin changes after sclerotherapy have enough time to resolve before you expose your legs.
