Vein Treatment in Boca Raton, FL

Located in Boca Raton, and serving the residents of West Palm Beach and all of South Florida, Sanctuary Medical Center offers vein disease treatments to those who desire cosmetic dermatology.

Vein disease is a disorder that stems from excessive pressure from the backward flow of blood in the veins that affects millions of men and women. It is, for the most part, hereditary and results in blood pooling in leg veins.

The most common vein diseases that we treat at Sanctuary Medical Center are:

What are the Most Common Treatments for Spider Veins?

At Sanctuary Medical Center, we bring together injections (sclerotherapy) and laser treatments to treat veins of different sizes. Veins that are bluer in color are usually treated with sclerotherapy while smaller red ones are treated with lasers.

Sclerotherapy. Sclerotherapy involves injecting a solution into the spider veins which causes them to collapse and be absorbed into the body while the blood flow is re-routed through healthy veins.

Laser Treatment. Laser energy is applied to spider veins causing them to seal shut. Your body absorbs the veins over time. This is a non-invasive treatment that is safe for most skin types and causes very little discomfort during the procedure.

Who is at Risk for Abnormal Veins in the Legs?

Several factors play into being more likely to develop abnormal leg veins most commonly, age, gender, current medical conditions and medical history. Other conditions such as pregnancy, obesity and even certain professions put individuals at a higher risk for developing abnormal veins due to increased pressure on the legs. Also, those with fair skin have a greater propensity to develop spider veins due to sun exposure.

What Can I Do to Prevent Spider Veins?

Even though spider veins are largely hereditary, there are things you can do to minimize the risk. If your job involves standing for long periods of time, make sure to take breaks where you can elevate your legs; maintain a proper diet along with regular exercise; avoid wearing high heels for long periods of time. And, if you have fair skin, always wear sunscreen on your face in order to prevent spider veins on your cheeks.

Will My Insurance Cover Treatment for Abnormal Veins?

Most often, spider veins are NOT covered by insurance plans as they are usually considered to be cosmetic. However, if procedures like sclerotherapy for abnormal veins do not work over time, and more serious treatments are needed to correct abnormal veins and relieve pain, insurance may cover some or all of the treatments. Following your consultation, you can discuss your insurance with the staff. We are very happy to help you with the process of determining whether your treatments are covered by your insurance.

What is the Cost of Vein Treatment in Boca Raton and West Palm Beach, FL?

The cost of vein treatment varies for every patient depending on the nature of the issues and extent of the procedures to treat your abnormal veins.
