Video Overview

What are non-invasive treatments for varicose veins? The wearing of compression stockings or compression garments. That is really the only non-invasive treatment and that is temporary at best. Wearing the stockings will give you symptomatic relief. But at a certain point that symptomatic relief will no longer be there and as soon as the stocking are off, you're right back to where you were when you started. So really the invasive treatment takes care of the problem at hand and the only non-invasive treatment is the long-term, life long wearing of compression garments.
