Varicose veins and their associated complications can lead to chronic pain, disability, diminished health-related quality of life, reduction of working days, premature retirement, and even the loss of limb or life. Varicose veins or smaller spider veins are common in both men and women, and they often occur in older people, but younger adults can get them also.
The very best age for varicose vein removal is when they are diagnosed, the earlier the better. The medical evaluation by a varicose vein specialist and the timely treatment of varicose veins is vital, as chronic venous insufficiency is a progressive condition that typically worsens when left untreated.
Treatment age is not the issue. Certainly, when varicose veins are causing pain, aching, swelling, itching or other discomfort, it’s time to consider vein removal surgery in order to both improve the quality of life and to avoid serious complications. It is unnecessary to suffer any longer. Endovenous laser ablation and sclerotherapy for varicose veins has dramatically changed the way that varicose veins are treated.
With these highly effective modern therapies, most people can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment. Because no scalpels or sutures are utilized in either treatment, there are no long-lasting scars or keloids, there’s minimal discomfort, and most treatments are characterized as being virtually painless. Additionally, most major health insurance carriers provide coverage for the treatment of vein disease and venous insufficiency when medically necessary.
