The majority of people with varicose veins seek treatment due to their symptoms rather than for only cosmetic reasons. These symptoms often include swelling, aching, throbbing, fatigue, and tenderness among others.
Varicose veins are a manifestation of chronic venous insufficiency, which can further progress to leg pain, leg edema, varicose veins bleeding, skin changes and leg ulcers when left untreated. Although varicose veins are a common condition, they can cause disfigurement, disability and impairment to quality of life.
While measures such as exercise, weight loss, leg elevation, and compression stockings may help to prevent the formation of new veins and may offer some improvement of symptoms, varicose veins are a chronic and progressive condition. They don’t simply go away without intervention.
However, old surgical techniques have largely been replaced by new minimally invasive laser surgery for varicose veins. Treating varicose veins has become revolutionized through these two safe and highly effective methods:
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.
