Now is the time to treat those varicose veins

Have you been delaying getting those large varicose or spider veins treated?

If so, now is the perfect time to reconsider!  The late fall and early winters months are an ideal time to treat this health issue.

More often than not, comfort is the motivating factor for most patients to decide on a treatment plan this time of year.  Most treatments involve wearing compression hose.  This type of hose is not particularly comfortable and can get really hot in the warmer months.

Compression hose’s main purpose is to reduce pain and swelling associated with varicose and spider veins. This means each pair needs to fit snugly on the patient’s legs. All our patients are measured to ensure we get the best fit for you. These types of medical grade compression hose help to ensure proper healing and a good cosmetic result post procedure.

Another good reason to address your issues with varicose or spider veins now is during the cooler months there are less outdoor activities.  Reducing exposure to UV rays post procedure will also help reduce the chances of skin discoloration during the healing period.

Finally, post procedure cosmetic results can take up to 8-12 weeks, sometimes longer.  Although symptoms from varicose veins and spider veins tend to resolve much quicker, cosmetic appearances of veins that have been there a long time may take longer. We want to make sure we can get you treated with plenty of time to show those new legs off for the summer months!

Also, most insurances cover treatment for varicose veins! So if you have met or are close to meeting your deductible, now is the time to look into getting your legs healthy again.
