Feel confident in your healthcare decisions, and know the facts!
1. Varicose veins are strictly cosmetic.
False. Varicose veins, if left untreated, can eventually lead to chronic venous insufficiency, which can cause many problems like leg swelling, ulcers, and skin discoloration.
2. Varicose veins are hereditary.
True. A family history of varicose veins means a higher risk of getting them, but even people without a family history can develop the problem.
3. Surgery is the only answer for varicose veins.
False. Laser or Radiofrequency ablation and sclerotherapy are outpatient procedures available that don’t require surgery.
4. Insurance doesn’t cover vein treatment.
False. Insurance may not cover all vein problems. Varicose veins are usually covered by insurance, provided that the patient has valvular insufficiency and reflux.
