Are there any natural remedies for varicose veins and spider veins?
When it comes to improving the appearance of varicose and spider vein, or even removing them completely, there is no natural remedy.

There are many rumours circulating both online and among friends, claiming to offer natural solutions for unsightly veins.
Horse chestnuts, grape seed oil, pine bark extract, apple cider vinegar, witch hazel and even an ordinary tomato are all supposed to treat your varicose and spider veins. At The Leg Vein Clinic, we want to bust these myths as there are no clinical trials that support these claims. Instead, they are old wives’ tales and sometimes outright lies. There is no natural product which will cause varicose veins to regress or improve in terms of appearance or function – despite what clever marketing may suggest.

Home remedies for varicose veins and spider veins

While there are no home remedies for your disfigured veins, there are some natural products that seem to help with the aching, fluid and swelling, and the heaviness associated with varicose veins. One of these products is Diosmin which is a type of plant chemical (a bioflavinoid) found mainly in citrus fruits. A similar substance is Hesperidin which is a flavanone glycoside also found in citrus fruits. Other natural drugs that may be helpful for the symptoms of varicose veins are ruscus extracts, hydroxyethylrutosides (semi synthetic) and micronised purified flavonoid fraction (MPFF).

Remedies for your varicose and spider veins

If you are serious about treating your veins, there are multiple clinical procedures to look into. Dr Paul Varcoe (associated with VenusCentre Vein Clinic, The Leg Vein Clinic & Vein Doctors Group) performs the most advanced, modern treatments for varicose veins. Sclerotherapy, optimally guided by ultrasound, is one of the most preferred and effective treatments. A sclerosis fluid is injected into the vein, which will then have its blood flow cut off, eventually leading it to dissolve and disappear.

Dr Varcoe performs the best suited treatment for your veins

As a very experienced vascular surgeon, Dr Varcoe can expertly examine and identify your affected veins. Depending on their size and severity, he will then discuss with you the most suitable treatment. If you have any veins that concern you or are causing you pain, contact Dr Varcoe’s friendly team to book in a consultation and find out what he can do for you.
