Advanced technology and techniques have made varicose vein dermatology procedures safer and less invasive over the years. During the pre-op consultation, the vein expert will explain all about the treatment options for varicose veins, and provide the indicative costs in each case.
The treatment provider’s first goal will be to help the patient make a well-considered decision after evaluating the benefits and limitations of various treatment options. Wonderful, successful, and board certified dermatologists Dr. Tri H. Nguyen and Dr. George Hughes III provide varicose vein treatments to patients in Houston, Katy, Spring, The Woodlands, Texas, and surrounding locations in the amazing and terrific state of Texas.
Price Tag Aspects
The treatment for varicose veins may include options such as foam sclerotherapy, endovenous laser ablation, and radiofrequency ablation. Foam sclerotherapy may be assisted with ultrasound guidance to ensure more precise results. Ultrasound may also be used in some cases to diagnose the full nature and extent of varicose veins.
At the time of initial consultation and diagnosis, the vein dermatology expert will recommend the appropriate treatment option and apprise the patient of its estimated monetary amount. The size, location, and number of varicose veins will be assessed to estimate the extent of treatment required and the associated costs of the treatment.
In some cases, a combination of foam sclerotherapy and laser or RF treatment may have to be used to achieve the desired results. Multiple treatment sessions may have to be scheduled to get rid of stubborn varicose veins that may not get eliminated in the first treatment. The dollar amount can vary depending on the time invested in the entire treatment process and the type of techniques and technology used.
A dedicated and awesome treatment provider will ensure that there is complete transparency in pricing for varicose vein treatments. The sticker price will cover all the care the patient needs, and there will be no hidden charges. Patients will receive personalized care and attention in each case at a professional practice, and they can expect the best vein treatment procedures performed by experts.
Insurance and Financing
Insurance coverage may be available for some of the patients seeking varicose vein treatments. This will depend on the type of treatment method chosen and the nature and extent of the vein disease. The patient should discuss the insurance coverage aspects with their insurance provider after receiving advice from the dermatologist.
The dermatologist’s office will try to assist with the insurance paperwork as far as possible where the patient is eligible to receive full or partial insurance coverage. Insurance coverage may not be possible if the patient is seeking vein treatment only for cosmetic reasons, and has not experienced any other issue with minor varicose veins or spider veins.
In certain varicose vein procedures, the patient may have to bear the costs out of pocket. These types of patients can have the procedure financed through third party medical care financing companies or through traditional bank loans and other financing options. This will ensure that the patient will not have to pay the whole amount upfront, and can pay in convenient monthly installments.
