How Do I Get Rid of Varicose Veins

There is no doubt that varicose veins are stubborn and are likely causing your pain that you wish would go away. No one likes to go outside and be self conscious about the way that their legs or other parts of their body look. Luckily, there are easy ways to treat varicose veins that are non-invasive and easy to recover from. With today's technology, you don't have to worry about living with varicose veins any longer. 

Venaseal 

Venaseal is one of the newest treatment options available for varicose veins. Venaseal works as a glue that enters your veins and treats your varicose veins. For many years, the only way to treat your veins was to actually have them removed from your body. This treatment was invasive and it was not fun to recover from. Venaseal allows patients to leave the doctors office feeling great and ready to continue with whatever their everyday life wishes. 

Venaseal does not require any incisions into your body. It also does not disrupt your body like old techniques. Many techniques require you to wear unsightly socks for many days following the treatment. There are no compression socks associated with the Venaseal treatment! In fact, many athletic and active people choose to have this treatment because they can continue their active lifestyle the same day. 

Venaseal is a new treatment so you may have a more difficult time finding an insurance company who covers the cost of the treatment. We would expect the treatment to become more readily covered by insurance companies over the next few years as it becomes more popular and available in doctors offices. If your lifestyle is important to you and you do not want to have down time following a varicose vein treatment procedure you should consult a vein specialist about having a venaseal treatment. They will be able to determine if you insurance will pay any of the costs and also talk about how much the treatment is going to cost overall. 

Living with varicose veins is a thing of the past. You no longer have to be self conscious about the way that your veins appear in your body. If you are suffering from the physical and mental side effects of varicose veins you should consult your doctor and determine which treatment option is going to be best for you. 

What to Expect in Vein Treatment?

Deciding to have your varicose veins treated is a decision that you will likely have to think about a bit before you make the decision to jump in and have the treatment done. Once you have decide to have your veins treated, do you know what you should expect? Let's break down what you should expect when you have vein treatments preformed. 

What to expect in vein treatment

When you begin your treatment you should expect to have a quick exam and a consultation with the doctor or radiologist that is going to preform your treatment. Understanding what your treatment will do is the first step in being confident in the procedure you have chosen and to make sure that it is a good fit for your needs. 

Before your treatment, they will do a scan of your veins to see if there are any existing conditions that the doctors should be aware of before the treatment begins. This is a great way for the doctor to have a good idea behind your veins and understand what they are going to be dealing with. 

You should also check and make sure that your insurance company is going to cover the cost of your treatment so you don't end up with a large bill after your treatment is finished unexpectedly. You can ask the doctors office to help you work with your insurance and they can determine if it is something that is going to be covered or not. If the treatment isn't going to be covered you may be able work out a payment plan with your doctor and see if you can work out something to help you work with the costs. You should always do these checks before the procedure is done. If you wait until the procedure is finished you will have a much more difficult time working with the different people to work on costs. 

Rest Assured 

Once you have gone through the checks and made a good decision, you should be confident about your procedure and rest assured that you are in good hands.
