5 Common Treatments for Varicose Veins

More than 40 million Americans have varicose or spider veins. Varicose veins in the legs are dark purple or blue and may look twisted and bulging. Spider veins are smaller. Spider veins often resemble a spider’s web and vary in size. They’re typically red or blue and although they are often on the legs, they may also be seen on the face.

In addition to being unsightly and sometimes painful, another common complaint is itchy varicose veins. This is caused by a skin condition known as varicose eczema, which is due to increased pressure in the veins. Unfortunately, It is estimated that one in five people over the age of 70 develop varicose eczema.

Fortunately, treatment is available by much less invasive procedures than in previous years, and can generally be treated on an outpatient basis. Below are five common varicose vein treatments and spider vein treatments, which are available to treat unattractive, painful, and often itchy varicose veins.

When it’s time to seek treatment, our expert vascular specialists effectively treat varicose veins, spider veins, and other symptoms of venous disease using the latest endovenous ablation and sclerotherapy techniques.

There’s minimal discomfort, and treatment is 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.
