In brief: See a phlebologist

I would see your doctor or a vein specialist.
Typically, they will order an ultrasound of your leg veins to determine the cause of your varicose veins and then recommend treatment. Treatment options are compression stockings (will help with pain and swelling but not make them go away), closure of veins with laser or radiofrequency, surgical removal, or sclerotherapy.

In brief: A process that ...

Begins with ultrasound.
With varicose veins, it important to have an ultrasound examination of your veins to see if there is any underlying vein trouble that is causing your visible veins. This underlying problem is usually treated with endoveneous laser or rf. The rest can be treated with phlebectomy, sclerotherapy, or both. Traditional vein stripping surgery is rarely done in the us any more.

In brief: Varicose veins

this depends on what type of varicosities are present.
Large of varicose veins are most likely to be treated with a thermal ablation procedure without the need for surgery. Surface type varices a more often treated with sclerotherapy or surface laser treatments. In the interim I would certainly recommend compression stockings. Evaluation with a venous Doppler sonogram will identify the problem
