Hi there. I have also had varicose veins since i was 18, im now 36 and i have had 2 operations. The op i had was sclerotherapy and the 2nd op, was stripping, ie, stripping the veins out. It sounds bad but it wasn't that bad, it all depends on how bad they are. Go see a doctor, but be aware that if they are not causing you any pain, they may not operate, as this would be a cosmetic problem, unless you pay yourself!
An alternative may be herbal remedies, which is what i am trying now since my veins have come back again. Horse chestnut and pycnogenol are ones to try, but ask your doctor first! hope this helps. You may also be at greater risk if it runs in the family, my whole family has a history of it.

i used to have so called spider veins on my cheeks and under my eyes(not too much) and it helped me to get rid of them. don`t know about thighs area but its quite strong stuff,so hopefully can work on thighs too. :)

it depends on the severity of the varicose veins... some frens of mine who had mild v.veins claimed that wearing support stockings helped...

especially if ur job requires u to stand on ur feet all day...

try to elevate ur legs on pillows when u rest too...
