Why Winter is the Best Time for Vein Treatment
Have you been covering up those unsightly varicose or spider veins with pants during the scorching Fresno summers? If so, then winter is the best time to finally take back your confidence and free your legs from those uncomfortable jeans.
Varicose veins, spider veins, and other vein disease can cause not only physical discomfort, but those unsightly veins can also make many sufferers feel self-conscious. If you’re considering treatment for your varicose or spider veins, then right now is the best time to act. Here’s why:
Cover Up Those Compression Stockings
Compression stockings are great for relieving leg pain both before and after vein treatment. At Elmore Medical, we request that patients wear compression stockings for several days after cosmetic treatment and for several weeks following varicose vein treatment. These stockings help your blood circulate naturally during the healing process.
While compressions stockings come in many styles and colors, many people feel uncomfortable wearing them with shorts during the warmer months. While you’re all bundled up for the colder weather, you’ll be able to hide your compression stockings, allowing you to find relief and comfort.
Treated Areas are Less Likely to be Exposed to the Sun
After varicose or spider vein treatment, it is recommended that patients avoid exposing the treated area to the sun. Sun exposure can cause discoloration for several weeks following treatment. During the spring and summer months, the temperatures are high, and the last thing you probably want to do is dress in layers. This makes winter the optimal time to avoid sun exposure without additional effort.
Heal Before Summer
Aren’t you excited to show off your freshly healed legs? The last thing you want to do is go through treatment and then have to wait until next year to wear those brand new shorts. Undergoing vein treatment during the fall or winter gives you plenty of time to heal and recover, giving you the freedom to wear whatever you want when summer finally arrives.
