Will I need Varicose Vein Treatments for Life?

The quick answer is that with the newer treatments the results are very effective and the chances of them returning are very low. Therefore life long treatment may not be necessary.

 

It can depend on the factors below:

 

  1. Early age of varicose veins – Starts in teens or twenties – Higher chance more veins break down as you get older
  2. Overweight or increase in weight can cause veins to break down
  3. Multiple pregnancies – 2 or more – Can worsen vein disease progression
  4. Significant family history – Which usually is seen at an early age of presentation but not always
  5. Surgical treatments have a higher recurrence rate
