There are people who mistakenly believe that varicose and spider veins are simply a cosmetic issue. However, many others suffer with the leg swelling and pain, heaviness, fatigue, skin changes and other symptoms of varicose and spider veins. In fact, varicose and spider veins are medical conditions that are progressive, and only get worse without treatment.
These vein conditions affect both men and women, especially with aging. Venous health awareness is especially important as people age as it can affect their general health, activity levels, and the quality of their lives. Because varicose veins are often quite painful, activities can become restricted, in addition to increasing the risk for serious complications such as skin ulcers and blood clots. Varicose vein specialists advise that early evaluation and treatment can help to avoid these complications and risks.
Fortunately, two highly effective, non-surgical varicose vein treatment options are available performed by vein specialist doctors today, endovenous laser ablation and sclerotherapy for varicose veins. These treatments take only minutes and require no hospitalization or surgery center.
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. With these modern therapies, most people can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment. Additionally, most major health insurance carriers provide coverage for the treatment of vein disease and venous insufficiency when medically necessary.
