Best Varicose Vein Treatments in Houston, Texas
As mentioned previously, our vein treatment center in Houston only provides minimally invasive varicose vein treatments in Houston, Texas. Minimally invasive varicose vein treatments are non-surgical, cause minimal pain and discomfort, have a nearly perfect success rate, a negligible risk of complications, and they conclude within an hour with no downtime. However, there are several varicose vein treatments in Houston, Texas — radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, and VenaSeal.
Radiofrequency ablation treats vein diseases using thermal energy. During the radiofrequency ablation varicose vein treatment, the vein doctor administers local anesthesia to ensure a comfortable experience and creates an incision on the skin’s surface. The vein specialist inserts a catheter through the incision, using vascular imaging to guide the catheter into the diseased saphenous vein. Once the catheter is in place, the vein doctor administers local anesthesia and activates the catheter, collapsing the problematic vein. The accumulated blood reroutes to healthier veins, restoring smooth blood circulation to the heart.
Endovenous Laser Ablation
Endovenous laser ablation treats vein diseases using laser energy. During the endovenous laser ablation varicose vein treatment, the vein specialists administer local anesthesia to ensure a comfortable experience and create an incision on the skin’s surface. The vein specialists drive an endovenous laser fiber into the diseased vein under ultrasound guidance. Once the laser fiber is lodged within the saphenous vein, the phlebologist delivers laser energy to its vein walls. The saphenous vein collapses, and the accumulated blood reroutes to healthier veins, restoring smooth blood circulation to the heart.
VenaSeal treats the diseased saphenous vein using medical-grade adhesive. During the VenaSeal procedure, the vein doctor injects a medical adhesive into the problematic saphenous vein under ultrasound guidance. The sclerosant solution fuses the vein’s walls, turning it into hardened scar tissue. The accumulated blood flows to healthier veins, restoring smooth blood circulation. Meanwhile, the diseased vein eventually hardens and gets absorbed by the body. The entire procedure is painless, but it’s not yet covered by insurance plans because it has only recently received FDA approval.
Best Spider Veins Treatment in Houston, Texas (Sclerotherapy)
Sclerotherapy is the best spider veins treatment in Houston, Texas. During the sclerotherapy procedure, the vein doctor injects a sclerosant medicine into the visible spider veins, fusing their vein walls. The spider veins gradually harden into scar tissues while the accumulated blood flows to healthier veins. Over time, the scar tissues are metabolized by the body, fading away from the skin’s surface.
Sclerotherapy is considered a cosmetic procedure because it removes the visible spider veins without addressing the underlying vein disease. As such, vein specialists only recommend sclerotherapy if you don’t have underlying venous insufficiency (as determined through vascular imaging) or after the primary varicose vein treatment.
Do Insurance Plans Include Sclerotherapy & Varicose Vein Treatments?
Insurance plans generally pay to make you feel better, not look better. As such, most insurance plans extend coverage to medically-necessary varicose vein treatments but not sclerotherapy. Radiofrequency ablation and endovenous laser ablation are always covered by insurance plans to various degrees because they treat the underlying vein disease. VenaSeal has only recently received FDA approval, so it’s not yet eligible for insurance coverage.
Sclerotherapy isn’t included in insurance plans because it only removes the visible spider veins. However, our vein treatment center in Houston might include sclerotherapy within the primary varicose vein treatment, unofficially extending insurance coverage to the procedure. Please discuss this option with your vein doctors.
