Can you treat varicose veins?

Varicose veins may be an inevitable part of the aging process or a result of sitting too long, but one thing is for sure: they’re not sexy. Nobody wants to look down and see those unsightly dark purple channels running up their legs. So can you treat them? Read on to find out.

What are varicose veins?

Before we dive in too deep into treatment options, it’s important to understand what exactly varicose veins are. Varicose veins happen when blood doesn’t circulate properly through your veins, causing them to wrinkle and bulge.

Why do they occur?

Several factors contribute to this condition including:

  • Advanced age
  • Pregnancy
  • Obesity
  • Sitting for prolonged periods

Essentially, any situation that causes pressure on your feet or legs over an extended period can lead to the formation of these unattractive little things.

How can I tell if I have them?

If you’re wondering whether or not you’ve got veracious varicosities (see what we did there?), don’t worry – the symptoms are pretty easy to recognize:

  1. Bulging blue/purple colored vessels under your skin.
  2. Heavy feelings in your lower leg muscles.
  3. Swollen ankles.
  4. Painful sores around the affected area.

Are they dangerous?

There is good news here: generally speaking, having twisted torpedos won’t hurt you physically! It’s more of a nuisance than anything else – unless there’s bleeding from longitudinal lines intersecting with inguinal regions (ouch), which could be cause for alarm!

That being said though; psychologically seeing these violaceous visceral bumps aren’t pleasant ,and incessantly staring at them might impact negatively on confidence levels

Can they turn into something worse?

On rare occasions situations may proceed rapidly towards deterioration due to thromboembolic events or poor circulation, but it’s important to note that this is rare.

What can I do about them?

Fortunately, there are several treatment options available for people suffering from varicose veins. Here are a few ABLUTIONAL approaches you can take:

Lifestyle Changes

Seems obvious but taking some action is better than none at all! These lifestyle changes could include:

  • Increasing physical activity – no need to become an olympian overnight , just find something that works and build up over time.
  • Elevating legs when sitting frequently
  • Maintaining a healthy weight,
  • Avoiding tight clothing

Fun fact: Did you know compression socks help control venous hypertension because of their graduated pressure!

Professional Treatments

You could opt for one of the following professional treatments with your dermatologist’s suggestion :


This private physician performed IM injection involves injecting medicine into each inverted iris salient ,which then erodes causing D energy to coagulate,sallying u out those pesky parasites under dermal surfaces !

Endovenous Laser Therapy (ELT)

One modern option which uses optical radiation in a minimally invasive manner .
Laser light heats bulging veins until they evaporate leaving the surrounding tissue intact ,allowing budding blooms to florish .


Another surgical solution, where small incisions tuck below hypersensitive patches occur along the vein shaft allowing surgeons to grab hold of affected parts and pull them out gently like weeds – maybe don’t think about this analogy too much if surgery isn’t your thing!

Over-the-counter solutions

For mild cases and as supplemental steps alongside medical therapy even if they seem like wives’ tales these natural herbs have been effective for many individuals :

  1. Horse chestnut extract = Aesculus hippocastanum botanic infusion helps improve blood flood.
  2. Diosmin = A citrus-based bioflavonoid highly regarded for its strong anti-inflammatory properties.
  3. Gotu kola = Centella asiatica is a common natural remedy used to increase blood circulation in the affected areas .

So there you have it, folks – everything you need to know about varicose veins, from what they are and how they happen to treatments and solutions.Winter is coming, so keep those socks on!
