Schedule An Appointment TODAY With A Vein Specialist
Seeing a vein specialist should be one of the first things you do. One of the main reasons it’s important to see a phlebologist as soon as possible is because of insurance requirements*. Most insurance companies cover certain treatments for venous disease. However, most insurance companies require a period of “conservative management” that includes trying compression stockings and weight management under the care of a physician before their approval. This is why it’s important that your first step be to consult with a vein specialist.
*Note that spider vein treatments are not generally covered by insurance plans as they are considered cosmetic-only issues. Please see us so we can discuss payment options available in our practice.
Better Looking Legs With Compression Stockings
Compression stockings and other compression wear are a simple way to improve circulation in your legs. They place gentle, graduated pressure on the legs to prevent swelling, blood clots, and bulging veins.
The time it takes to feel relief and see results varies from patient to patient; however, compression is proven to provide a certain degree of relief for patients and even helps to prevent further damage. However, compression alone does not cure the underlying cause of your vein problem or eliminate your unsightly veins.
Regardless of your insurance, we recommend compression to most of our patients before and after other treatments. We also practice what we preach in the form of prevention through compression.
