Cosmetic Vein Treatment Q & A

What is cosmetic vein treatment?

cosmetic vein

Cosmetic vein treatment is available at Vascular Vein Centers to address unsightly veins on your legs and other areas of your body. 

Unsightly veins are visible under your skin, showing through in shades of red, purple, or blue. These troublesome veins might also protrude from your skin.  

Cosmetic vein treatment is suitable for reducing or eliminating common problems such as:

  • Telangiectasia (spider veins)
  • Leg veins
  • Facial veins
  • Venous lake (purple lip lesions)
  • Reticular veins
  • Hand veins

Unlike treatments for venous diseases, medical insurance doesn't usually cover cosmetic vein treatments. 

If you're not sure about your coverage, you can discuss this with one of the highly knowledgeable members of the Vascular Vein Centers insurance authorization team. They can make sure you receive all the benefits you're entitled to under your insurance policy.

What causes unsightly veins?

Conditions like reticular veins are often inherited. Your tendency to have problems like protruding hand veins, varicose veins, and spider veins could be genetic too. Overexposure to the sun or extreme temperatures can also cause spider veins.

The most common cause of unsightly veins is chronic venous insufficiency. This condition is also the leading cause of venous conditions such as varicose veins, skin changes, lymphedema, and leg ulcers.

Chronic venous insufficiency develops when the valves in your veins become weak or damaged. These valves keep your blood flowing back to your heart. If they aren't forming a tight enough seal, blood can trickle back through and sit in your veins. This causes vein discoloration and, in time, protrusion of the veins.

Factors like having an inadequate diet, lack of exercise, smoking, and being overweight or obese make you more likely to develop unsightly veins.

What does cosmetic vein treatment involve?

The Vascular Vein Centers team recommends a combination of lifestyle changes, a focused health plan, and wearing MediUSA compression stockings to treat the underlying causes of unsightly veins.

There are also several treatment options available for removing unsightly veins. These cosmetic vein treatments include:

  • Foam sclerotherapy using Varithena®
  • Endovenous laser therapy (EVLT)
  • VenaSeal™ medical adhesive

These minimally invasive cosmetic vein treatments work by causing the unsightly vein to collapse. Your blood flows through a healthy vein instead, so there's no pooling or pressure. As a result, the discoloration on your skin disappears.

Cosmetic vein treatments are effective, safe, and cause little discomfort. To find out more, call Vascular Vein Centers or book an appointment online today.
