Approximately one out of every two people aged 50 and older are affected by varicose veins. Although it’s a common condition, it is one that can cause disfigurement, disability and impairment to quality of life. Although vein disease occurs more frequently in women, about 40% of all men develop varicose veins by the age of 65.
Traditionally, only highly invasive surgical remedies were available for varicose vein removal. Vein stripping is a procedure where varicose veins are physically removed by a surgeon through incisions. It is not the most favored option due to the number of incisions usually required, and also because of the length of recovery time needed.
However, varicose vein specialists now offer new laser vein removal options, which are available to replace old-fashioned surgical methods. Two of these highly-effective modern methods include:
When it’s time to seek treatment, a specialist vein doctor can effectively treat varicose veins, spider veins, and other symptoms of venous disease using the latest endovenous ablation and sclerotherapy techniques.
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.
