Spider veins or varicose veins can be treated in a number of ways, and not all of them are difficult or invasive. Some home remedies can help get rid of spider veins over a longer period of time naturally and without much risk. However, for a speedy treatment and the treatment of more difficult and stubborn cases, there are more advanced procedures such as laser treatment, radiofrequency ablation (RFA) or sclerotherapy.
While home remedies don’t require anything invasive, they can be somewhat harder to put into effect, and their positive results aren’t seen in every patient. You can try a variety of exercise techniques, leg elevation, standing, self-care techniques and special items such as compression stockings. Sometimes they’ll work quite well over time, while other times they might barely show any amount of improvement.
On the other hand, getting treatment from a professional vein doctor to help with your spider veins might be much more efficient. In many cases, a treatment for spider veins such as RFA or sclerotherapy will only require one session and some observation, after which the patient will be free to go home. In some cases, your doctor might recommend that you also wear compression stockings on daily walks and use additional home remedies and measures that are proved to offer relief after the procedure. However, these are not to be considered as replacements to a working medical treatment for varicose veins.
