The San Diego Varicose Vein Treatment Center has years of experience and extensive training in both diagnosing and treating a wide range of vein-related health conditions. Our team of experts use advanced technology and top-of-the-line vein treatment options to provide both personalized cosmetic and medical vein treatments.
What is Considered a Medical Vein Treatment?
Medical vein treatments apply to procedures on health issues and symptoms related to venous diseases and troublesome varicose veins. Vein health risks that develop over time due to poor blood circulation can mean different vein treatments may be needed. These procedures have been created to include a personalized comprehensive health care approach that can include:
A new diet plan and some daily lifestyle changes. Such as changing one’s exercise to a low-impact workout. Read more tips on our Improve Your Varicose Veins with These Circulation Ideas blog.
Making sure to elevate one’s legs. Putting a pillow underneath the legs can help reduce swelling in the feet and lower legs. This can also be a good reason to ask your doctor or other medical professional if you should wear compression stockings. Learn more on our Compression Socks, Compression Wear, and Vein Health Benefits blog.
Thus, the rule of thumb for medical vein treatments is that they are for more serious health concerns that, in certain situations, could be needed due to a doctor’s referral or are needed because of a threatening medical condition. Our vein treatment center offers FDA-approved procedures like Sclerotherapy, Endovenous Ablation treatment, and others as part of our medical vein treatments.

What is Considered Cosmetic Vein Treatment?
Cosmetic vein treatments are typically procedures that reduce the appearance of or remove unsightly superficial spider veins. Popular and common types of cosmetic vein treatments include Sclerotherapy, VeinGogh, injections, and laser treatments. Cosmetic procedures are popular for the treatment of minor face veins, leg veins, and hand veins. These procedures are also most often used to gain a more youthful look, rather than relief for a major health concern or from painful venous symptoms.
Which Types of Vein Treatments Does Insurance Cover?
We are partnered with a few major insurance companies which have policies that tend to offer the best coverage when it comes to cosmetic vein removal or treatments. We have seen coverage for up to 50% of some of our patient’s cosmetic procedures, such as Sclerotherapy. At times, when necessary due to a medical condition, we may be able to have more of our cosmetic procedures covered.
Most major insurance companies do not tend to cover cosmetic vein treatments unless they are directly related to a medical condition. They do tend to cover a majority of varicose vein-related issues, such as Venous Disease, as well as the medical vein treatments used to assist in the healing and repair of health-related issues that can lead to more dangerous conditions.
