Those pesky varicose veins have been plaguing you for a while, maybe even years, but you still refuse to get rid of your varicose veins. You may even have a laundry list of excuses to keep putting it off. It’s true we’re getting into the colder months, and your legs might not be on display as much as they were in the summer, but that doesn’t mean you should be purposely hiding them – there are holiday dresses to be worn after all.
A professional and knowledgeable vein specialist, like Dr. Jeffrey Gosin and the team at Shore Vascular & Vein Center in Somers Point, New Jersey, will walk you through the process and quell any lingering fears you may have. With Shore Vascular & Vein Center though, you’ll be dealing with one of the very best vein treatment centers in Atlantic County, Cape May County and Ocean County.
It’s time to set your excuses for procrastination aside. Here are five reasons you should stop putting off treating your varicose and spider veins:
1. It’ll be over before you know it
Varicose vein treatments are non-invasive and are actually considered to be out-patient procedures. Most procedures can be completed in less than 30 minutes, and require only a local anesthesia. So once the procedure is completed, patients are released to go home and can carry on with their everyday activities immediately in most cases. It doesn’t really take that much time away from you living your life. In fact, you’ve probably spent more time worrying about the procedure and recovery than what it will actually take.
2. It really is painless
Outdated techniques may have given varicose vein treatments a bad rap. The truth is though, with modern methods – especially when administered by a vein specialist who is a Board Certified Vascular Surgeon – patients feel very little, if any, pain. For instance, the Venefit procedure can be completed with simple local anesthesia. And new sclerosing solutions have eliminated the burning sensations previously associated with sclerotherapy procedures. If you were trying to find a remedy for your vein problems many years ago, we’d understand your hesitation, but today, those fears are unnecessary.
3. What you’ve been trying hasn’t been working
Whether you’ve been using compression stockings, airbrush cover-ups or crazy at-home, DIY remedies you read online, we’re willing to bet you haven’t been successful. While some treatments may cover up the problem, simple, minimally invasive procedures can actually get rid of the annoying, unsightly problem.
4. The procedure is often covered by insurance
For the most part, varicose veins are considered a medical condition, not just a cosmetic problem. And in most cases, we’ve found that insurance companies will cover varicose vein removal procedures, especially if it’s diagnosed as venous reflux disease (which is determined through ultrasonography testing). Our experienced insurance specialists will work directly with your insurance company to provide all of the necessary information to obtain insurance coverage.
5. Get an extra boost of confidence going into the holiday season
Even if you plan on being bundled up from Halloween until the flowers start blooming again in the spring, there’s a certain confidence that comes with knowing you have nothing to hide. Whether you’re at the gym running in your new shorts, or decide to don your favorite (short) dress sans tights, if you combat the problem of varicose veins now, you won’t have to worry about covering anything up.
If you’re ready to make an appointment or still have a few lingering questions, call Dr. Gosin and Shore Vascular & Vein Center at (609) 927-VEIN (8346) and he and his team will walk you through the process. Don’t keep putting it off, get your varicose vein problem taken care of today.
