Did you know that winter is the BEST time to treat varicose veins? Here’s why:
Why is winter the best time to treat your varicose veins?
There are several reasons why winter is the best time to get your varicose veins treated:
• Varicose veins are more noticeable in the winter.
You may notice that your varicose veins appear more visible during the winter months. That is because during the colder season, physical activities tend to decrease. With inactivity, our blood circulation decreases, making the veins stand out more.
The more visible the varicose veins are, the easier it is for the vein specialist to identify the problem areas and determine the most suitable vein treatment for you.
• Compression stockings are more comfortable.
Compression stockings are a conservative option for varicose vein treatment.
Compression stockings will increase circulation by decreasing tension on the veins in your legs and slowing the progression of varicose veins. While they are useful, wearing compression stockings can be hot. This makes wearing them more tolerable and comfortable during the winter months.
Plus, Premier Surgical Vascular & Vein Center now offers medical grade Compression Stockings in our Office! We provide 3 styles & colors to choose from, and prices start at $38.
• There is ample time for recovery before summer.
Getting treatment in the winter will give you plenty of time to be ready for spring and summer. Additionally, vein treatments can cause temporary discoloration and bruising that may take a few weeks to completely heal. A winter vein treatment will have you ready to bare your legs before spring!
