The treatment options for varicose veins Melbourne include either surgical or non-surgical options. Surgical treatment options are usually only considered when the veins are larger and could be a threat to your health or life in any way. These treatment options include laser treatment, sclerotherapy, and vein stripping. Non-surgical treatments include the use of compression stockings, hydrotherapy, and massage therapy.
Most people choose a surgical procedure if they are unhappy with the current condition of their veins. This is because once the veins are removed, the symptoms do not occur again for several years. If you have large, severe, varicose veins that cause significant discomfort or are painful to exercise in, then you may want to consider having your veins removed surgically. However, other varicose vein treatment options may be less invasive and will often give you the same results as a surgical procedure.
