Often a combination: I would see a vein specialist/phlebologist. A venous ultrasound of your leg veins should be done to find the cause of your varicose veins and make a treatment recommendation. A treatment option that helps symptoms but doesn't make the veins go away is compression stockings. Other more definitive options include laser or radiofrequency ablation, ambulatory phlebectomy, and/or sclerotherapy. I woul.

See a specialist: Varicose veins tend to be hereditary. They are best treated by a vascular surgeon. Compression hose and walking help to reduce their effect on people.
