A top medical center offers insight into the different types and cost of spider vein treatment.

The cost of spider vein treatment depends on the kind of treatment that you decide on.

There are two methods of spider vein treatment that are commonly practiced today – sclerotherapy and laser therapy.

Sclerotherapy: Sclerotherapy may cost approximately $700 per session, and is usually performed only by trained vein experts, in specialty vein clinics. Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a medicated solution, called a sclerosant, directly into your spider veins. The injection is done using really tiny needles, which are totally painless – you may just feel a slight twinge of discomfort when the solution enters your veins. The entire procedure gets over in 30 minutes, and you can just walk out and resume your daily activities. You may need to wear compression stockings for a few days after the procedure to decrease swelling and improve healing.

When the sclerosant is injected into your veins, the blood is pushed out, and the vein ‘magically’ disappears. It will, however, reappear within a few hours, but don’t get alarmed. The vein actually takes around a month to disappear completely. During this time, the sclerosant irritates the walls of the veins in your legs, which causes them to eventually fuse to each other. This stops blood from filling back in the veins, and the spider veins stop functioning, and eventually get absorbed by the body. A single injection of sclerotherapy can lead to almost 80% improvement in the appearance of spider veins, so one session may be all that you need.

Laser treatment: Lase therapy (or blue light therapy) can range from $300 to $600 per session. On the other hand, laser therapy is commonly employed by medical spas and need not be administered by trained experts. The laser device generated heat, that penetrates through the surface of the skin to the spider veins and causes them to shrink and dissolve. Blue light therapy is not as effective as sclerotherapy, and you will not notice much improvement in a single session. You would require multiple rounds of blue light therapy to achieve the same results as a single session of sclerotherapy. So although the initial cost of blue light therapy may be lower, the overall process becomes much more expensive than sclerotherapy.

In some cases, the cost of spider vein treatment may be covered by insurance plans.

A large proportion of people with spider veins also suffer from varicose veins, or related vein conditions. In fact, both spider veins and varicose veins stem from another vein condition, called chronic venous insufficiency.Chronic venous insufficiency is a condition where the leg veins do not transport blood back to the heart efficiently. As a result, blood pools in the legs, causing increased pressure in the blood vessels. This causes the veins to expand and bulge, and this becomes visible externally as varicose veins and spider veins. Treating only spider veins without treating the underlying venous insufficiency is not really effective; Your spider veins will recur. So it is always best to get tested for vein disease before you proceed with spider vein treatment.

If you do have symptomatic vein disease, your vein treatment will most likely be covered by insurance. The symptoms of vein disease are usually quite vague, and most people do not associate them with the visible varicose and spider veins. So be on the lookout for the following symptoms, and be sure to report them to your vein specialist, so that you can get checked for underlying vein disease.

  • Aches and pains: The first symptom to look out for is a feeling of heaviness and aching in the legs, particularly after sitting or standing for long periods.
  • Swelling: The pain may be accompanied by swelling of the feet and ankles, particularly at the end of the day, or if you have been on your feet for a long time.
  • Cramps and restless legs: You may also experience throbbing pain in your legs, or sudden cramps. The cramps, sometimes accompanied by an irresistible urge to move your legs, often worsen at night.

If you report the above symptoms, the vein specialist will examine your veins using a duplex ultrasound to check for reflux of blood flows. If the ultrasound shows that you have venous insufficiency, you can probably get your vein treatment covered by insurance. In addition to treating spider veins, you will need to get the larger veins treated through a minimally invasive procedure such as radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser, or VenaSeal.
