In brief: Multiple Options

Varicose veins are visable veins that are caused by underlying venous insufficiency, you will need to have the veisn treated by evla, vnus, ambulatory phlebectomy and/or sclerotherapy.
You will want to see a vein specialist and have a duplex ultrasound to come up with the best plan for you.

In brief: Conservative va surg

Varicose vein treatment can range from conservative management using lower extremity compressive stockings.
Surgical management depends on the presence of venous insufficiency. In the case of insufficiency, the saphenous vein has to be closed first followed by sclerotherapy. Where there is no insufficiency, sclerotherapy can be the only approach.

In brief: 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.
