Bad Veins: What you are describing are varicose veins with either areas of enlarged varicosities(look like grapes) or areas of superficial phlebitis(clotted veins), either way you should see a vein specialist for a full venous evaluation including a venous reflux ultrasound to make the diagnosis and help to determine the treatment plan. ...Read more

It's doubtful: anything will have a significant impact on the size of varicose veins. Pycnogenol has some weak evidence that it may increase the strength and elasticity of varicose veins and it, along with other herbs/supplements may slightly improve symptoms. But, no supplement has ever been convincingly demonstrated to make varicose veins shrink. See a vein specialist if you want to eliminate them. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

It is best to have this evaluated by a vein specialist, often with aid of an ultrasound to see how best to treat. Weight loss or fat loss also makes veins more visible. ...Read more
Not advised: Would wait at least a few weeks if possible, especially if larger varicose veins were treated. Although the risk of blood clots is low after sclerotherapy, there is still a small risk of this and you don't want to take any chances. When u do fly, make sure to wear your compression stockings, walk in the aisle during the flight, & do some calf raise exercises during longer flights. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
