What are the Most Popular Reasons for Undergoing Varicose Vein Removal?

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:

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.
