Simple changes in lifestyle can play a role in warding off vein diseases. Exercising and maintaining a healthy diet are a good place to start. Even a small to moderate amount of exercise that targets the legs can reveal large health benefits. By moving your legs, you are flexing your muscles which helps the veins push the blood uphill to the heart. Take a few minutes every hour or two to get up and move.

Usually, if failed and leaking valves are identified the the larger veins like the Greater saphenous Vein or Small Saphenous Vein are closed to prevent leg swelling. The blood is routed to deep working veins instead of the blood pooling under the skin. This pooling and swelling of the leg veins is what causes varicose veins

The best treatment of varicose leg veins is Radio Frequency Vein Ablation. This is accomplished through a tiny poke hole through which a thin catheter is inserted and threaded up the abnormal veins. It is then heated using radio waves and the vein is closed. A band aid is all that is necessary to cover the site and compression stockings are worn for 48 hours.
