When people are looking to treat large varicose veins, they may want to consider a microphlebectomy. This is a procedure which requires no anesthetization and can be completed in less than an hour.
After marking and numbing the area to be treated, the process involves a surgeon making tiny incisions of less than a quarter of an inch in order to take out the damaged section of the bulging vein, usually about an inch. Because these incisions are made vertically, the marks are almost impossible to see after healing has occurred. A bandage is then applied and should be worn for a day or two. The follow-up care includes wearing compression stockings for a short time.

Compression stockings are used to support the muscles of the calf in circulating blood and lymph fluid through the legs. These stockings or hose are usually made of elastic or rubber fibers that aid in compressing the leg.
Compression stockings have a graduated compression with maximum compression at the ankle and decreasing up the leg. There are different types of compression available in these stockings, so be sure to check with your doctor about which level of compression would be best for you.
Endovenous laser ablation is a non surgical, non scarring varicose vein treatment alternative that does not require general anesthesia or hospitalization, takes less than an hour to perform and provides immediate relief with little to no pain during the procedure. Laser energy is used to target and seal problem veins, which reduces or completely closes the vein, improving appearance and reducing pain and discomfort.
