Complications Arise. In some worst case scenarios painful ulcers can develop as a result of increased leg swelling around the veins. Skin discoloration, leg ulcers, and severe leg swelling should be treated to avoid any further complications.
Symptoms Become Life Altering. Symptoms of varicose veins include itching, swelling, and discomfort in the legs. If symptoms become so severe that you have difficulty walking or working, and are forced to alter your lifestyle, it is time to schedule a consult and discuss options for treatment.
Cosmetic Reasons. Many people chose to undergo vein treatment merely for cosmetic reasons, as they believe their legs to have become unsightly. This is an acceptable reason, but understand vein procedures done for cosmetic reasons are not usually covered by insurance.
