Varicose Veins commonly observed in legs are twisted or swollen veins that have lost their elasticity. It occurs when valves of veins are unable to prevent backflow, thus causing the pooling of blood. Varicose veins are quite often a cosmetic concern, especially in women. They can be easily cured by following simple lifestyle modifications. If the disease advances then active treatment is required.

1. Compression Stockings
Compression stockings or venous stockings are tight-fitting socks that help to maintain blood flow in the legs. They also reduce the risk of blood clots forming in the legs. These stockings are worn during the day time only and are removed before bedtime.

2. Avoid Sitting or Standing for longer period of time
If you have a job of standing for a long period of time like nurses, teachers then there is undue stress on your leg veins. Similarly, if you have sitting jobs like drivers and office workers then there is a pooling of blood in the veins. So, you must walk for 1-2 minutes after every hour to regulate blood flow in the veins.

3. Elevate Feet
While sleeping at night keep your feet elevated by placing pillows under your legs. This helps in the regulation of blood flow in the legs.

4. Do Physical Activities
To avoid pooling of blood in the legs you must do physical activities like swimming, walking or exercising. It will also help to reduce body weight, as a result, there will be less pressure on the legs.

5. Varicose Veins Treatment

Varicose veins can be cured through laser treatment if the disease advances. Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) procedure is used for the treatment of varicose veins. In this Leonardo Laser is used and the entire procedure takes 25-30 minutes. The advantage of using Leonardo Laser over other Lasers is that there is a negligible recurrence rate and it’s a painless procedure. During the procedure as well as after the procedure patient hardly feels any discomfort.
