Frequently Asked Questions

What is an IAC certification?

Las Vegas Vein is an Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC) certified medical center. IAC certification serves as a network of accredited medical centers representing more than 40 medical specialties, providing an index for patients of providers who are committed to providing quality examinations and medical testing. Las Vegas Vein ranks as the only certified IAC vein center within the state of Nevada.

Are varicose veins permanent?

Varicose veins (also known as “spider veins”) can be removed from a patient’s affected areas by medical procedures. However, there are things you can do to slow the effects of varicose veins on your own: frequent exercise, healthy diet, and proper clothing.

What is body sculpting used for?

Body sculpting (or body shaping) houses both social and health benefits. People who are recovering from surgery, unable to make it to a gym, or competing in fitness competitions can receive help from body sculpting. This procedure can also help those wanting to look their best for important events such as weddings, graduations, or reunions. Body sculpting helps patients meet their ideal physical shape.

Can lymphedema be cured?

While lymphedema is presently not a curable condition, Las Vegas Vein works with patients to help manage the symptoms by providing compression treatments and physical therapy to help reduce swelling and discomfort.

Are men affected by varicose vein conditions?

While women are primarily the ones that are affected by varicose vein disease (55 to 60 percent), about 40 to 45 percent of men will develop vein disease as well. Surprisingly, men are less apt to seek medical treatment for the conditions, even though it is no less problematic or painful.

What triggers the onset of varicose veins in women?

While age and lack of exercise are general factors for everyone, the unique hormonal changes created by conditions such as pregnancy or menopause cause varicose veins to become more prominent and harmful.

What triggers the onset of varicose veins in women? Is it best that I remove any veins from my body?

Varicose veins are a burden on a patient’s circulation as the blood inside them is traveling in the wrong direction. Our treatment uses Ultrasound guidance that is highly selective in removing problematic veins (while safeguarding healthy veins). This careful procedure corrects venous congestion flow to improve a patient’s circulation.

Can I postpone my treatments?

While we are asked this from time to time, we try to discourage this mindset. Varicose vein disease is a progressive disease that will only get worse if left untreated. Patients can avoid significant health drawbacks by remembering that the sooner they get their veins treated, the easier they are to treat and control. Don’t put off tomorrow what you can do today.

Is vein treatment covered by insurance?

Yes, varicose vein treatment is often covered by most major insurance plans. Give Las Vegas Vein a call at (702) 898-9191 to speak with us more.
