Vein Doctors Discuss Effectiveness and Average Cost of Varicose Vein Treatment

Aug 21, 2019

After a long day on your feet, it’s normal for your legs and feet to feel a bit tired. You hop onto the couch looking forward to an evening of internet surfing and TV watching, but tonight your legs feel…. different. There is a heaviness and ache to your legs that isn’t going away. Pulling up your pajama leg, you see that there are some red, thin, spindly-looking veins that weren’t there before. You check the side of your leg, where you’ve seen something that looked like a blue rope in the previous months. Now, it’s really protruding from your leg, twisting and bulging beneath the surface. What’s going on here, and is this the cause of the leg pain you’re feeling?

What you’re seeing on your legs are spider veins and varicose veins, which can be symptoms of an underlying issue called venous insufficiency. While this may sound as terrifying as these veins look, varicose vein removal treatment, and the average cost of laser spider vein treatment, is not scary at all! At the Vein Treatment Clinic, our vein specialists employ cutting-edge technologies and expert care to diagnose venous insufficiency, and then create a treatment plan to eliminate your varicose veins and spider veins. Here, we’ll look at the average cost of varicose vein removal injection, laser ablation vein treatment, how insurance plans cover the majority of costs, and why consulting with a vein doctor is the best way to bring back pain-free couch time.

What is the Average Cost of Varicose Vein Treatment?

 When you begin to research what causes spider veins and varicose veins, you’ll find that both have a common, underlying cause: venous insufficiency. Also known as vein disease, many people go undiagnosed for years before seeking treatment, which is much easier and less expensive than you might think. Just because spider veins and varicose veins look scary and unpleasant, that doesn’t mean that varicose vein treatment options are just as frightening!

 In order to diagnose venous insufficiency, a consultation with a vein specialist is recommended. At the Vein Treatment Clinic, not only will our board certified, Ivy League-educated team consult with you about how to get rid of spider veins, they will also be able to diagnose if your spider veins and varicose veins are the result of venous insufficiency. Once this vein disease is diagnosed, then your varicose vein treatment is usually covered by most insurance plans. This means that any spider vein treatments, sclerotherpay, or laser vein treatments are part of the care plan associated with your properly-diagnosed vein reflux issue. If you’re concerned about whether or not your spider veins and varicose veins are caused by venous insufficiency, know that this is the primary cause for both of these issues.

What Causes Venous Insufficiency or Vein Disease?

If your vein doctor is screening for vein disease, what exactly does this mean? Venous insufficiency is a serious, chronic condition caused by the malfunction of vein valves. Think of your vein valves as one-way doors that allow blood to flow back up to your heart for re-circulation, but don’t allow blood to flow backwards in the wrong direction.

Due to a variety of factors, your vein valves can weaken, which allows blood to pool in the veins below the valves. Over time, this pooling blood creates the formation of spider veins and varicose veins. Vein doctors agree that common factors contributing to venous insufficiency include:

  • Genetics: If both of your parents have varicose or spider veins, you have a 90% chance of developing them yourself.
  • Pregnancy: An increase of hormones can cause your vein walls to relax. Combined with an increased blood volume which causes vein swelling, pregnancy creates the perfect recipe to form varicose and spider veins.
  • Age: Vein valves naturally weaken over time, due to normal wear and tear.
  • Obesity: Being overweight puts greater stress on your veins, which causes weakness in your vein valves.
  • Occupation: Jobs that require prolonged periods of sitting or standing can lead to chronic venous insufficiency.

Since this diagnosis is critical to having your insurance cover the average cost of varicose vein treatment, it is vital to consult with a vein doctor. Once a vein expert, such as the team at Vein Treatment Clinic has diagnosed your vein disease, it’s time to begin a course of treatment to remedy your varicose veins and spider veins.

What Treatments Are Effective for Removing Varicose Veins and Spider Veins?

There was a time when the only types of procedures for varicose vein removal included vein stripping and varicose vein surgery. If you’re reading about these types of treatments to address visible veins in legs, this varicose medical advice is likely outdated information. Compression stockings may also be used as an at-home remedy to improve blood circulation, but they do not address the underlying cause of vein disease. Today, a wide variety of minimally-invasive and relatively pain-free procedures exist to treat unsightly veins at the Pain Treatment Clinic such as:

  • Endovenous Laser Ablation: This laser ablation vein treatment is a highly-effective varicose vein removal treatment. Using an ultrasound guide, an endovenous laser is placed within the vein, causing it to close. The average cost of varicose vein treatment is typically covered by insurance if an underlying vein disease is present.
  • Sclerotherapy: This method of varicose vein removal consists of injecting a small amount of salt solution called “sclerosant” into the affected veins. The sclerosant helps your blood form a natural clot. Over time, this turns into scar tissue, which causes your varicose vein to slowly disappear.
  • Radiofrequency Ablation: This minimally-invasive technique uses thermal, heat-based technology to damage the vein, which in turn closes it.
  • Venaseal: Also known as “vein glue”, Venaseal seals affected veins using a medically-approved adhesive.

Taking care of your veins isn’t vain, but truly a step toward better circulatory health. The average cost of varicose vein treatment is often covered by insurance if an underlying vein disease is present. Book a consultation at the Vein Treatment Clinic today to see how our board certified, Ivy League-educated team can offer minimally-invasive treatments for your spider veins and varicose veins.
