Varicose veins and spider veins are commonly found in adult women and men. These abnormally enlarged vessels, are sometimes mistakenly considered to be only a cosmetic concern, however even when asymptomatic, they indicate a higher risk of circulatory problems.
Yet many people experience pain or discomfort, swelling, itching, burning, leg fatigue, cramping, or restless legs. In addition, these veins can lead to even more serious complications such as leg ulcers, or bleeding. Therefore, some great reasons to treat varicose veins or spider veins may include:
- Feeling good about the appearance of legs and enjoying the confidence to wear clothing that reveals them – this can mean experiencing the self-assurance to participate in activities such as wearing swimwear at the beach, allow more comfortable attire in warmer temperatures, and can enable women to wear skirts or dresses knowing they once again have smooth, clear legs
- Experiencing relief from pain and fatigue, experiencing a better quality of life, and for many allowing them to have a better night’s sleep
- Treating underlying conditions that cause varicose veins or spider veins by eliminating damaged vessels and improving circulation
- Reducing the risk of further complications – varicose veins are a progressive condition and treating them can prevent skin ulcers, infection, and bleeding
In the past, the standard treatment for vein removal surgery was vein ligation and stripping that was performed with scalpels and sutures, leaving behind unattractive scars. Today, there are two minimally invasive options for varicose vein removal, which are performed by a varicose vein specialist and are aided by laser technology. These include sclerotherapy and endovenous laser ablation.
Safe and minimally invasive laser vein treatments eradicate problem veins without scarring, while delivering better results, with no virtually no pain or discomfort. Utilizing this method of vein removal surgery offers an opportunity for those who suffer from spider veins or varicose veins to eliminate them, without fear of pain or scarring.
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.
