Varicose Veins – Sclerotherapy

December 23, 2020


“A methodology for therapy of these vein problems in both sclerotherapy and sclerotherapy is just injection as a substance that irritates the inner lining of the vein, shutting it down. The most common application of sclerotherapy is to those patients who have C1 disease, which is just by their veins. What you do is use a very tiny needle. And with a, usually a magnifying glass, you can inject this substance, is like a foam or soap that is highly relative to the veins and you’d inject them one by one. And you create an intense reaction inside those veins, disappearing hopefully the veins in a few days. The problem with this technology, there are several problems with this technology. First of all, once again, insurance does not recognize that patients can actually be affected by pain in the spider veins. They recognize this as cosmetic alone and in those lines, they don’t reimburse it.

They don’t pay for your patient’s therapy. Even though I can tell you that I do believe these patients come affected, afflicted, by pain in those spider veins that may look insignificant, but they come with significant issues. Insurance do not recognize, I guess, in a way to save money. And so patients usually have to pay cash from these procedures. They have it equated to the Botox in the face. Basically you have ugly veins, and if you want to have injected, you can pay cash for that. And the prices can go anywhere from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars in repeated sessions. And so unfortunately this will give you relief or they disappear for a year, but then a year after you’re looking into new veins forming on the side and you may net reapplication of the (?) in just like people with Botox, they have to be reapply in the wrinkles and so forth.”
