Many factors can contribute to varicose veins, including other family members having them, ageing, occupations where individuals stand still for prolonged periods, previous DVT and gaining weight. Several treatment options are available to reduce and close your varicose veins, allowing the blood to reroute through to your healthy veins. The procedure is performed under a local anaesthetic, which means that although you will be awake, the entire area will be numb and you will not feel anything. Treatment typically takes an hour, and your consultant will advise you on the most appropriate option for your condition.
