Covering up varicose veins does not solve the problem - it hides it. Varicose veins can get inflamed and this condition is called phlebitis. Chronic phlebitis over years can cause disability in the legs as well as trophic changes in the skin - dark pigmentation and discoloration, lipodermatosclerosis and venous stasis ulceration. So, covering them does not reduce your likelihood of getting these complications but only provides cosmetic bailout.
