Frequently Asked Questions


We perform an evaluation and a detailed ultrasound. Depending on your symptoms and anatomy, we develop a treatment plan specifically for you.
You may have bruising or tenderness after the procedure, but you should notice an improvement in your symptoms once the procedure-related discomfort resolves.
With many of the procedures there is bruising and tenderness. Everyone recovers at their own rate but most tenderness is resolved in 1-2 weeks. The incisions, if any, are small. Any related scarring should resolve by 6 months.
You will need to wear a compression stocking for up to 2 weeks post procedure. You should walk immediately after the procedure and we encourage walking. We recommend no lifting greater than 20 lbs for 1 week after the procedure. If your occupation requires prolonged standing, you may need a few days off of work. Otherwise, you can return to work immediately.
Insurance will usually cover laser vein treatment or laser ablation and microphlebectomy in people who are symptomatic — pain, aching, itching, swelling, and restless legs are some of the common symptoms felt by people with vein disease. Sclerotherapy is rarely covered by insurance. We will discuss insurance options with you at your appointment and we will obtain insurance pre-authorization prior to procedures.
We are currently in-network with WPS, United Health Care, Cigna, Healtheos/Multiplan, Trilogy, Medicare/Medicaid, Molina, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield and UMR. For other insurance plans, we can assist you in going out-of-network, or in using cash or other payment mechanisms for your vein procedure depending on your needs. We want to make it easy for you to take care of your veins. Around the time of your consultation, we can evaluate your insurance coverage and give you a better understanding of the process.
The procedures involve several needle injections which most people tolerate well. The fluid put in to compress and insulate the vein can cause a pressure sensation. Most people feel the procedure is much easier to tolerate than they had expected.
Usually procedure time are around 1 hour, however, you can expect to be at the office for 2 – 2 ½ hours.
