#1 KEEPING IT UNDER WRAPS
This is the time of year we take our cool weather clothing out of the closet, which also a makes it a good time to keep vein treatments under wraps. Because some treatments can cause minor bruising and or swelling around the treatment sites, you will find it easy to hide under your cool weather clothing while the treatment area heals. Your fall/winter wardrobe also serves to protect the treatment area from direct sun exposure, which can go far in improving your results.
#2 STAYING WARM
Vein treatments require you to wear compression stockings before and after your procedure. These special socks reduce swelling and promotes healing to the treated areas. Compression stockings come in a wide range of colors and styles making them easy to coordinate with your wardrobe and are available for purchase in the office when you are a patient in our clinic. However, they can be rather warm during the summer months. Waiting until fall/winter to wear those stockings can make for a more comfortable recovery process!
#3 ALLOWING TIME ON YOUR SCHEDULE
The process can take some time, you won’t see full results of your treatment immediately because often the veins are treated from the inside out. The veins are collapsed so they can be gradually, over time, be reabsorbed by the body. Often, there is more than one source to your varicose veins, therefore requiring more than one treatment session to achieve full results. Treatments are usually scheduled a few weeks apart to allow for healing of the treated vein before the next procedure is performed. So, when choose to start your vein treatments now, you will likely be enjoying full results by the time spring and warmer weather comes around. Your legs will thank you, feel better and look better for the spring warm weather!
