Common Questions About Laser Vein Treatment
Most people are ready to finally take back their life with vein treatment, but the actual process of treating their veins can be daunting. In part one of this series, we addressed a few common concerns that people have about laser vein treatment. As we continue with part two, we will discuss even more concerns to help put your mind at ease.
Will laser treatment hurt?
When people think of the word laser, they often picture a hot, red beam, which is not necessarily something you want going into your skin. It’s understandable that you may be afraid to try laser vein treatment because you don’t want to experience any pain. Luckily, at Center for Advanced Vein Care, your comfort is our number one priority, and our doctor will do her best to help you avoid pain and discomfort.
That being said, everyone has different pain tolerances. Some people may not experience any pain at all, while others report feeling a slight stinging sensation. If you experience any pain during the treatment session, Dr. Stiller can apply a topical numbing cream to ease any discomfort.
Will I need more than one treatment?
The number of treatments you need to fully eliminate the problems caused by your vein condition depends on the size and number of veins that need to be treated. If you have one small spider vein in your leg, then you will likely only need one treatment to correct the condition. If you have multiple varicose veins in both legs, however, then it may take multiple sessions to treat them all. During your initial consultation, Dr. Stiller will be able to give you a timeline of how many treatments you will need and what your recovery will look like.
Are vein treatments covered by insurance?
In addition to worrying about how much the vein treatment will hurt, another one of the biggest concerns people have regarding treatment is how much it’s going to cost. Luckily, when done for medical reasons, laser vein treatments are often covered by most insurance plans. If you are visiting a vein clinic because you are uncomfortable and in pain as a result of your vein conditions, and they are severely affecting your quality of life, then there is a good chance that your treatment will be covered by insurance. However, if you are simply requesting treatment for cosmetic reasons, then your insurance company may not see it as medically necessary. The best way to determine whether or not treatment is covered is to speak with your doctor and a member of your insurance company.
