About Varicose Veins
Varicose veins affect millions of men and women each year, with conditions ranging from minor cosmetic concerns to more serious circulatory problems.
What Causes Varicose Veins
Varicose veins are caused by faulty valves in the venous system – a medical condition known as vein reflux disease that affects the circulation of blood in the lower extremities.
This condition occurs when one-way valves meant to prevent the backward flow of blood malfunction – causing blood to stop free-flowing. As a result, the blood pools and causes the veins to swell, leading to unattractive and often painful bulges just below the surface of the skin.
Varicose Vein Treatments
Varicose to Perfect is a state-of-the-art varicose vein treatment center, one of the first in Springboro, Ohio for minimally invasive treatment options. Our varicose vein treatments are easy, convenient, and virtually pain-free.
Certain lifestyle changes and self-care measures can be taken to decrease the severity of varicose vein symptoms – including diet and exercise routines. However, in most cases, professional intervention for varicose vein treatment is needed to ensure optimal cosmetic results and complete varicose vein removal.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is walking good for varicose veins?
Walking is a good and safe exercise for people with varicose veins. It is a low-impact activity that can help improve circulation and blood flow in the legs. Moreover, walking can prevent blood from pooling in the veins. This can cause swelling and make your varicose veins worse. Walking keeps the blood moving.
At what age do people get varicose veins?
Varicose veins can develop at any age. However, they are more common in individuals by age 50 and above. The risk increases with age due to wear and tear on vein valves. This regulates blood flow. Veins weaken with age, so older individuals are at highest risk. However, genetics and obesity can cause varicose veins in younger individuals.
What helps varicose vein pain?
To alleviate varicose vein pain, you should walk regularly and exercise. Swimming and cycling are helpful. Wearing compression stockings can also help. Moreover, you should avoid standing for long periods if you can. Lastly, over-the-counter painkillers like Tylenol or ibuprofen can help alleviate pain from varicose veins.
Does insurance cover varicose vein treatment?
Insurance will cover medically necessary varicose vein treatments. However, coverage will depend on various factors. If you have symptomatic varicose veins that cause pain, swelling, or skin changes, your insurance will likely cover it. Moreover, if your varicose veins interfere with work and daily activities, insurance should cover it.
Insurance should also cover a treatment or procedure if you can show that safe treatments such as compression stockings and over-the-counter medication did not work for you.
Can varicose veins burst?
Yes, varicose veins can burst. However, it’s not common. When they burst, it’s usually due to malfunctioning valves and damaged circulation (chronic venous insufficiency).
Varicose veins can also result from injuries such as bumps, bruises, and cuts to an already weakened varicose vein. You should always seek medical care immediately if your varicose happens to burst.
Can you get rid of varicose veins without surgery?
Yes, in most cases, you can treat varicose veins without surgery. Lifestyle changes like exercising, avoiding long periods of standing, and wearing compression stockings can help.
Moreover, you can treat varicose veins using minimally invasive procedures such as sclerotherapy injections, endovenous thermal ablation, and microphlebectomy. These treatments result in less pain and fewer complications compared to surgical options.
