THOUSAND OAKS, Calif., May 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Though most people are pulling back on cosmetic procedures during the recession, the exception to the rule is insurance-covered treatments, like laser vein removal. Unfortunately, most people who need to have their varicose veins removed do not even realize that beautiful, healthy legs are within their budget since most health insurances covers the procedure. By not having varicose veins removed promptly, individuals are at risk for health complications and worsening of the varicosity. Health insurance covers laser vein removal because, aside from the unsightly appearance that causes sufferers to hide their legs in shame, varicose veins are a serious health issue. Individuals who have varicose veins experience constant pain, discomfort and blood clotting risks due to the faulty valves that cause their leg veins to bulge and twist.
A number of life factors compound over time will cause varicose veins. Pregnancy, prolonged periods of standing or sitting, and genetics play a large role in the development of unpleasant varicose veins. Varicosity might improve after giving birth, but the valves in the vein walls are likely permanently weakened. Since there are no over the counter or prescription treatments for varicose veins, the only options to have smooth, vein-free legs again are laser treatment, sclerotherapy and vein stripping; all procedures that permanently close the varicose veins.
For individuals considering treatment for their varicose veins, the most important step is locating a highly qualified vein removal clinic. Not only should the doctors be highly skilled, but the individual should always inquire whether the clinic takes insurance for the varicose vein treatment. Many Los Angeles clinics specialize in providing insurance-covered varicose vein removal to their patients, like the Renaissance Laser and Vein Institute. Based in Thousand Oaks, California, the Renaissance Laser and Vein Institute focuses their practice on treating skin and vein conditions with powerful lasers.
