Common misconceptions about varicose vein treatment in Wellington


Many people believe that they will never fall victim to spider veins but to their astonishment will need vein treatment in Wellington. A professional vein specialist will be able to tell you about a number of misconceptions that society believes when it comes to spider veins and varicose veins.

Here are some misconceptions about spider veins and the treatment of these veins that the specialists at Goldman Vein Institute in Wellington hear:

  • Only older people get spider veins – Spider veins and varicose veins are more common to develop in people that are over the age of 50, but anyone can get spider veins including teenagers and the elderly. Factors such as pregnancy, obesity, lifestyle, family history, and trauma to the legs can all impact why, how and when these veins develop.
  • There is nothing you can do about varicose veins – The vein specialists at Goldman Vein Institute in Wellington advise that there are a wide variety of things that can be done about spider veins. Apart from having spider veins treated by means of sclerotherapy and laser treatment, you can maintain a healthy diet, lose excess weight and exercise regularly. Doing this will minimize the appearance of veins that needs to be treated.
  • Medical insurance does not cover spider vein treatment – It is important to remember that every health insurance carrier is different and has a different policy. There are many cases in which insurances do cover varicose vein treatment.
  • All varicose veins are visible to the naked eye – It is generally accepted that spider veins and varicose veins run like ropes over your legs. You may have varicose veins that are not visible as these veins are not near the surface of the skin. If you experience tired, achy or heavy legs, it is better to have your legs checked out at Goldman Vein Institute in Wellington.
