Data from the Chicago Vein Institute indicates that more than 40 million of the US population suffer from varicose veins. Factors such as excess weight, aging, heredity, and professions with prolonged sitting or standing periods increase the risk of developing varicose veins. This condition is more common in women than in men.
Sometimes called spider veins, these are large, dilated veins that appear to be raised slightly above the skin. They mostly appear on the legs. Varicose veins happen when the valves that assist the veins to take the blood back to the heart are not able to function. This makes the blood pool in the veins on the lower legs rather than flow back to the heart.
The primary symptoms of this condition are highly visible veins that may appear blue or purple. They may be accompanied by itchiness or achiness, pain, swelling, and heaviness around the varicose veins. In severe cases, the veins could bleed or develop into an ulcer on the skin.
In most case, varicose veins are harmless and some people opt to have the condition treated purely for cosmetic reasons. For others, they can be painful and thus interrupt the victim’s quality of life. Quite often, most people wonder when it is right to seek varicose vein treatment. The following symptoms warrant immediate treatment:
If left untreated, the varicose vein pain could progress to serious venous diseases such as lipodermatosclerosis.
Varicose vein treatment is aimed at reducing the symptoms and minimize the risk of developing complications. The treatment cost varies depending on the patient’s condition and services your MediSpa offers. Also, depending on the severity of the condition, your medispa can recommend any of the following treatment options:
Chances are there is a MediSpa near you that offers treatment for varicose veins. It’s best practice to visit Medical spas (MediSpas) because they are staffed by medical professionals and offer a wider range of services than ordinary spas. The staff are able to give an in-depth examination and diagnosis and are best placed to advise on the most effective treatment for specific conditions.
The treatment of varicose veins includes surgeries and non-invasive procedures, all of which carry some degree of risk. Even though the procedures are perfectly safe and the staff are well-trained, experienced, and licensed, problems in the treatment process could still arise, resulting in your medispa being sued for malpractice or a liability claim.
Obtaining a liability or a comprehensive medispa insurance coverage from Marine Agency protects the business from such instances.
To protect themselves from legal issues and liability claims, medispas need to have the right insurance policy in place. Consult with the Marine Agency team today for more information on medispa insurance policy options.
