This effect occurs when the medication comes into contact with the vein wall; when this happens, the vein walls become irritated and close up (don’t worry, it doesn’t hurt and won’t cause any long-term harm). 

Over the course of three to six weeks, patients may notice clearer skin left behind after the body absorbs the spider veins.
