How To Get Rid of Ugly Bulging or Painful Leg Veins

Rid Your Legs of Those Ugly Bulging or Painful Leg Veins

Are you one of the unfortunate people who has developed ugly bulging leg veins as you have aged? Are these leg veins causing your legs to ache, swell, cramp, or fatigue? Or are you just tired of your legs looking unsightly? You are not alone. About 25% of women and about 15% of men develop varicose veins during their lifetime. And most of these individuals develop these veins when they are at their peak years of life, i.e. at middle age. They are most commonly a hereditary problem, caused by the genetic failure of valves within certain veins of the legs. The underlying condition that leads to these veins is referred to as venous reflux disease.

What Are These Modern Therapies For Bulging Ugly Leg Veins?

These state-of-the-art procedures involve procedures that are performed under local anesthesia (Novacaine) in our vein center (similar to how a dental procedure is done with injection of numbing medication). The vast majority of the procedures take under 30 minutes to perform. And most of them are also performed without any incisions being placed on the skin of the legs! Sound amazing? It really is incredible how these procedure can have dramatic results with a minimally invasive procedure.

Have you heard of laparoscopy, fiber-optic procedures, medical lasers, or robotic procedures? These are all amazing surgical advances that have allowed patients to get conditions treated through minimally invasive methods with little pain and fast recovery. These same type of amazing advances have also occurred in the field of vein diseases! Through the use of micro-catheter technologies and with the use of devices such as lasers and radiofrequency technology, we are now able to cure bulging ugly or painful leg veins.

The new technologies that make possible the minimally-invasive removal of bulging leg veins, ugly leg veins, and painful leg veins include the following: endovenous laser, radiofrequency ClosureFast catheter, VenaSeal vein glue, Clarivein catheter, Varithena medication, foam sclerosant drugs, and high-definition ultrasound devices.

Are These Procedures Costly? Are They Covered By Health Insurance?

Luckily, the majority of patients that are evaluated at our vein center do qualify for coverage of these vein removal procedures under their health insurance policies. At Austin Vein specialists we will work with your insurance company to determine if you qualify for coverage. If you do not have insurance coverage, then we will always be transparent in the costs involved and we will happily provide you a written quote of the procedural costs.
