Over the years, spider vein removal procedures have become less invasive and safer as a result of advancements in vein treatment techniques and technology. At the time of the preliminary consultation, the vein specialist will inform the patient about the different options available for the treatment of spider vein and the estimated costs of each option.
The first goal of a committed treatment provider is to help the patient in making an informed decision after evaluating the benefits and limitations of the different treatment options. Dr. Q Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Quardt (Dr. Q) provides spider vein treatment to patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and surrounding locations.
Treatments for spider veins may include options such as foam sclerotherapy, traditional sclerotherapy and sometimes, laser treatment. Ultrasound guidance may also be used in combination with foam sclerotherapy to produce more precise results. Ultrasound may at times be used to diagnose the full extent and nature of the diseased veins.
In the course of the pre-treatment diagnosis and consultation, the vein treatment provider will recommend the ideal treatment option and give details of the estimated costs to the patient. The provider will also evaluate the number, size and location of the spider veins to decide the nature of treatment that a patient requires along with the estimated costs.
In some cases, the spider vein doctor will suggest a combination of sclerotherapy and laser or RF treatment to achieve the desired results. The patient may have to undertake multiple treatment sessions to eliminate stubborn spider veins which may need more than one treatment. The total time invested in the treatment and the kind of technologies and techniques used will determine the final cost.
A committed treatment expert will provide transparent pricing details for spider vein treatments. The cost estimate should cover the complete care of the patient and not consist of any hidden charges. At a professional practice, every patient will get customized attention and care, and they can expect the most advanced spider vein treatment from a highly skilled and experienced provider.
Insurance and Financing
Patients looking for treatment for spider veins and varicose veins may sometimes benefit from their insurance coverage, depending on the treatment method used, and the extent and nature of the vein problem. After seeking advice from their doctor, the patient should discuss the possibility of cost reimbursement with their insurer.
The staff at the med spa will try to assist the patient with insurance documentation, and support their effort to obtain full or partial coverage. The patient may not be able to receive coverage if they are looking for vein treatment only for cosmetic reasons and do not have any medical problems arising due to minor spider veins or varicose veins.
The patient may be required to pay out-of-pocket if vein removal is only performed for aesthetic purposes. These patients can benefit from low cost loans offered by third-party medical care financing firms. This will ensure that the patient does not have to pay all costs upfront and can pay in easy monthly installments.
