If varicose veins forced you to hide your leg during the summer season this year, now is the time to think about seeking treatment for those embarrassing, bulging lines. Use those cooler months of the year to seek out the right vein treatment for you, and you will be ready to face the next summer season in style. Check out these reasons why fall is the perfect time to consider treating those unsightly and uncomfortable varicose veins for good.
Keeping Under Wraps
While today’s varicose vein treatments are much less invasive than surgical options of the past, modern procedures can still lead to mild bruising and swelling around the treated areas. During the cooler months, your legs will be kept under wraps so those telltale side effects of varicose vein treatment will be safely hidden from view. In addition, pants and tights protect your treated legs from sun exposure, a must after any type of varicose vein procedure.
Compression stockings offer a special type of compression that encourages healthy blood flow and healing in the lower legs, which is why they are often worn after vein treatment. As helpful as these stockings are, they can also be hot and less than attractive with shorts and skirts. Having vein treatment during cooler months ensures you can hide your stockings comfortably under pants and jeans for as long as necessary.
Taking the Time
As much as patients would like to see instant results from varicose vein treatment, waiting for full results often takes time. Even scheduling your procedure may involve a wait period, as we try to accommodate every patient seeking treatment for spider and varicose veins. When you schedule your procedure in the fall, you can rest assured your legs will be fully healed before winter holidays or the summer season.
Getting Summer Ready!
You may not be thinking about that bathing suit in your closet much right now, but the day will come when you will want to pull it out and put it on once again. Just think of how much more enjoyable that day will be if you are flaunting sexier, vein-free legs! Get your summer on now and you will be ready to hit the beach or pool when that season rolls around again.
