Compression stockings may temporarily reduce the discomfort and skin damage effects of varicose veins or spider veins. The pressure that these stockings provide can help prevent swelling, and promote better circulation. However, they are effective only temporarily, are typically quite difficult to put on, and must worn at all times while standing.
Although they can sometimes help with reducing the symptoms of painful varicose veins and may slow the progression of vein disease, they cannot correct the underlying vein problem. Yet, some insurance companies may require a trial use of these before approving other more highly-effective treatments such as endovenous laser ablation or sclerotherapy for varicose veins and spider veins.
It’s important to consult with a specialist vein doctor to determine if compression stockings can help to provide relief for your symptoms. A varicose vein specialist can provide information on these and other safe and effective therapies to treat your varicose and spider veins, and most major health insurance carriers provide coverage for the treatment of vein disease and venous insufficiency when medically necessary.
