If you have been avoiding vein treatment, what are you waiting for? Your varicose veins will not go away on their own, and there’s no better time to seek treatment than in the winter so that your legs have lots of time to heal before it warms up again.
After treatment, it is typically recommended to wear compression stockings for some time to improve physical function and reduce any pain. Compression stockings can be a pain to wear in the warm summer months, but in the winter they really aren’t that bad. In fact, they can even be considered an extra layer of warmth because of the added insulation. They can also be hidden by pants, meaning that no one will even realize you are wearing stockings.
Shorts weather is nowhere near, so you will have lots of time for your skin to get better. It often takes several months for you to even notice any changes in the appearance of your legs after treatment. You might also discover that you need multiple treatments for your varicose veins to fully disappear, in which case you would still have the time to undergo that treatment if you wish. In addition, legs should not be exposed to UV rays from the sun for about three to four weeks after treatment, so that should not be a problem in the winter. Once summer does roll around, you’ll be ready to show off your legs at the beach.
During the holidays, our lives seem to get a million times more hectic and time becomes much more precious. Luckily, there is no downtime after treatment so you can go about your schedule as planned and not miss out on any family time. But if you do want the time to relax after treatment, you have the perfect excuse to snuggle up on the couch and watch some movies.
Due to the decrease in physical activity, circulation throughout your body is lowered. This makes your veins stand out more than usual. Because your veins are more visible, the affected areas can be more easily identifiable for treatment.
Because varicose veins are no longer functional, getting rid of them causes no damage to the circulatory system. Here are some of the treatment options available, but ultimately a vein specialist will determine which form of treatment is best suited for your condition.
