How can I prevent varicose and spider veins?
Not all varicose and spider veins can be prevented, but some actions
can reduce your chances of getting new varicose and spider veins.
- Wear sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun and to limit
spider veins on the face.
- Control your weight to avoid increased pressure in the abdomen.
Added weight increases pressure in leg veins.
- Avoid tight clothing that constricts your waist, groin or legs.
Such clothing can also cause increased pressure in the leg veins.
- Elevate your legs when resting.
- If your occupation requires you to sit or stand for many hours,
wear elastic support stockings. It is important that the elastic
stockings are of the graduated compression type.
Do insurance companies cover the costs of treatment?
We will determine whether the symptoms, the underlying problem
and the proposed treatment are medically necessary or
cosmetic in nature. If your condition is deemed medically
necessary, the treatment may be covered.
