There are millions of people who suffer from varicose veins, causing pain, swelling, and embarrassment. You can take steps to prevent them from getting worse and to improve your overall vein health by taking these steps.

At the UK Veincentre (Dubai), we understand the impact that varicose veins can have on your quality of life. Our goal is to help you regain confidence in your legs by preventing varicose veins from worsening.

Varicose veins can be caused by the following factors:

Varicose veins can be prevented by understanding the factors that cause their development and worsening. A few of these are:

  1. Genetics: Varicose veins may run in your family if you have a family history of them.
  2. Lifestyle Factors: Standing for long periods of time, not exercising, and being overweight can increase your varicose vein risk.
  3. Pregnancy: When pregnant, the veins in the legs are put under additional pressure, which increases the chance of varicose veins forming or worsen.
  4. Age: Varicose veins and other vein conditions may develop as we age due to weak vein valves.

How to prevent varicose veins from getting worse:

Here are some practical steps you can take to prevent the worsening of varicose veins after we outline the factors that cause them:

  1. Stay Active: Maintain good blood circulation in your legs by engaging in regular physical activity. In order to reduce the risk of varicose veins, you can strengthen your leg muscles by walking, swimming, and cycling.
    • Moderate exercise should be done most days of the week for at least 30 minutes.
    • Exercises that improve circulation include calf raises and ankle circles.
  2. Maintain a Healthy Weight: An overweight individual is at greater risk for varicose veins, due to the added pressure that excess weight places on the veins. The health of your veins can be improved by maintaining a healthy diet and maintaining a stable weight.
    • Make sure you eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein to maintain a healthy diet.
    • Choosing low-fat meals and avoiding processed foods will help you lose weight.
  3. Elevate Your Legs: Keep your legs elevated above your heart level during breaks throughout the day. Your veins will be relieved of pressure and swelling as a result.
    • It is recommended to prop your legs up on a chair or ottoman several times throughout the day for 10-15 minutes.
    • Using a pillow under your feet will help promote better circulation in your legs while you sleep.
  4. Wear Compression Stockings: Compression stockings promote blood flow and reduce varicose veins’ severity by applying pressure to the legs.
    • In addition to wearing compression stockings, you should also wear them when you spend long periods of time standing or sitting in one position.
    • Your individual needs should determine how much compression you need in your stockings.
  5. Seek Professional Treatment: An experienced vein specialist will be able to help you if you’re experiencing persistent pain, swelling, or discomfort.
    • At UK Veincentre (Dubai), we offer a range of minimally invasive treatments to treat varicose veins.
    • In addition to sclerotherapy, we provide endovenous laser therapy (EVLT), which is proven to provide long-lasting results.
