But before you proceed with the treatment, let’s study what it actually is.

What are Varicose Veins?

This disease is noticed in humans when there are some discrepancies in the nervous system, mainly the dysfunction of the nervous valves. These nervous valves are what facilitates blood circulation in the veins and hence in such a situation, blood flow tends to get ineffective, leading to enlargement and swelling of the veins. Such abnormalities are noticeable throughout the skin of one’s legs and feet as those are the areas where such problems are likely to occur.

Are they hazardous to health? Do they need treatment?

These are most unlikely to cause much damage to your overall health, but exceptions to such are there.

  • In case of excessive swelling and aching, treatment is required to reduce the discomfort.
  • In some cases, excessive twisting of the veins may lead to rupture and varicose ulcers on the skin and hence must be treated at the earliest.

The treatment 

As discussed above, in absence of any symptoms or severity of discomfort, these Varicose veins can cure over time without you having to pay much attention to it. However, if the sight of those black lines on your skin bothers you, and there are some severity and symptoms noticeable, you must get it treated in any of the following most favored ways as per your particular case.

  • Surgery

In case of extreme enlargement of the varicose veins, it’s better to opt for surgery to remove it. However, these surgeries aren’t much of a big deal and you can be discharged in a day or two.

  • Laser treatment 

This process is mostly opted to close the spider veins. A strong beam of light projected on the particular area leads to fading away of the visible black lines as well.

Wherein the above two procedures don’t lead or have any chances of many side effects and damages to show up in your body, the following methods are a bit more complicated than the above ones and thorough research is advised before performing them.

And hence the conclusion is, even if you choose to get the treatment done, it won’t hinder your lifestyle much and neither would burn a large hole in your pocket!
