If so, how was it? What technique? And would you recommend it?

I've had both sclerotherapy and laser treatment and neither worked sadly. I've given up now and wear Sally Hansen leg make up.

I had them for years and nothing worked. I then developed some varicose veins which needed treating. Had mine done at Vein Centre. They did a scan to identify any underlying veins, and dealt with these first. The treatment was expensive but I’m pleased with results

Recovery was fine. I had to wear compression stockings for a week. My legs look so much better now, I’m pleased
