In brief: Treatment

The treatment of varicose veins depends on te cause of the venous insufficiency.
You need to have an ultrasound of the superficial and deep venous systems to see if there is any reflux. If there is reflux in the saphenous vein then you can have endovenous ablation of the vein. Sometimes this is all you need. Sometimes you need phlebectomy as well. See a vein specialist for further evaluation.

In brief: Depends

There are many reasons why one gets varicose vein.
Genetics, body type, previous injury, life style / activity level, nature of work, and pregnancy can all play a role. The nature of problem also tends to differ individually. Don't be afraid to discuss your specific problems with your doctor. Many minimally invasive office procedures are available with minimal down time.

In brief: Varicose veins

Depends on the nature of the veins Evaluation to determine the varicose veins cause,if spider veins then sclerotherapy would be recommended If larger then a sonogram would identify it there is a reflux issue and if so then thermal ablation would be recommended

In brief: Varicose veins

Most common treatment for varicose veins is endovenous ablation with laser (EVLT) or radiofrequency heat (Venfit).
Other common treatments include phlebectomy & ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy. Stripping of veins has traditionally been used in the past but is not common today. Seek opinion from board-certified vascular surgeon as they are vein experts that can offer all options to you
