Individual results will vary based on the specific persons anatomy. Generally, treatment of superficial venous insufficiency (leaking veins) with endovenous ablation will eliminate the problem of reflux and should help stop the symptoms of pain and discomfort. However, this treatment may not make varicose veins and / or spider veins disappear completely. Swelling related to reflux in the deep veins of your legs may persist. Additional procedures, such as phlebectomy or sclerotherapy, may be necessary to achieve optimal results. These procedures will not be performed until the results of the laser treatment are apparent.

As a result, laser treatment and an ambulatory phlebectomy will be covered if 6 weeks - 12 weeks of conservative treatments (compression stockings, weight control, exercise, and / or elevation) have been unsuccessful.Treatment of spider veins with sclerotherapy is considered by most insurance companies to be cosmetic and is not usually covered.Vein Care Center in Highland, Indiana accepts most insurance carriers in the region.
