1. Compression socks are beneficial to your health.
Are you feeling pressured with life right now? At least with compression socks, you will feel the good kind of pressure. Since pressure is applied to your ankles and calves, such a soft squeeze at the bottom of your circulatory system aids in supporting your veins by sending blood back up to your heart. You can wear them for long hours if you feel the need to. Find the best fit now for you to have happy feet!
2. Compression stockings can get rid of varicose veins.
Sometimes, we can't go back to where we started, just like the veins in your legs. Unfortunately, wearing compression socks will not magically remove varicose veins in one go. While they can increase blood flow, they cannot get rid of the existing varicose veins. However, you can still wear them to protect your lower legs and feet to help slow down the development of such varicose veins.
