Over the years, spider vein removal procedures have been made safer and less invasive due to advancements in technologies and techniques. At the time of the initial consultation, the vein specialist will inform the patient about the various treatment options available for spider vein treatment as well as the estimated costs of each option.
The primary goal of a dedicated treatment provider will be to enable the patient to make an enlightened decision after assessing the advantages and limitations of various treatment options.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman provides spider vein treatments to patients in Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Cleveland, OH, and surrounding locations.
Treatments for spider veins may include options such as traditional sclerotherapy, foam sclerotherapy, and at times, laser treatment. Ultrasound guidance may be used along with foam sclerotherapy to ensure precise outcomes. Furthermore, ultrasound may sometimes be used to diagnose the nature and full extent of varicose veins.
During the pre-treatment consultation and diagnosis, the vein expert will recommend the most suitable treatment option and explain its estimated costs to the patient. The provider will also assess the size, number and location of the spider veins to determine the extent of treatment that a patient needs as well as the estimated costs.
Sometimes the vein expert will recommend a combination of sclerotherapy and laser or RF treatment to accomplish the desired outcomes.
The patient may have to undergo multiple treatment sessions to get rid of stubborn spider veins which may require more than one treatment session. The overall time invested in the treatment and the types of techniques and technologies used will determine the costs.
A committed treatment provider will make sure that they offer transparent pricing for spider vein treatments. The cost estimate will cover patient care and will not include any hidden charges. At a professional practice, each patient will receive individualized care and attention, and they can expect the best vein treatment from highly trained specialists.
Insurance and Financing
Patients seeking treatment for varicose and spider veins may be able to avail insurance coverage, depending on the treatment technique used and the nature and extent of the vein condition. After consulting their dermatologist for advice, the patient should discuss insurance coverage possibilities with their insurer.
The surgeon’s staff will try to help the patient with insurance documentation, and make a concerted effort to assist the patient in receiving full or partial coverage.
It may not be possible for the patient to receive insurance coverage if they are seeking vein treatment only for aesthetic reasons and do not have any medical concerns due to minor varicose or spider veins.
The patient may have to pay out-of-pocket in case of vein removal only for cosmetic purposes. These patients can take advantage of loans by third-party medical care financing firms or through banks and other financing avenues. This will help patient avoid paying all costs upfront and allow them to pay in easy monthly installments.
