Why Fall is a Good Time for Varicose Vein Treatment
You may be looking forward to the upcoming fall season, because you will finally be able to hide your unsightly varicose veins behind cool weather clothing once again. However, if you spent the summer embarrassed by those bulging veins, now is not the time to put them out of sight and mind. Instead, consider a minimally-invasive vein treatment that can effectively eliminate those veins without putting a major crimp in your fall fun. PCI Vein Center has some good reasons to think about varicose vein treatment this fall.
Vein Treatments and the Sun
The latest vein treatments use state-of-the-art technology like lasers and radio frequency energy to destroy spider and varicose veins. While this technology offers stellar results for all types of vein conditions, those results can be affected by sun exposure in the days immediately preceding or following treatment. By scheduling your procedure during the fall months, it is much easier to protect the treatment areas from direct sun exposure, increasing your odds of the best possible results.
Pain-Free for the Holidays!
Varicose veins can be more than a cosmetic concern for some sufferers. Symptoms of varicose veins might include:
- Aching or swelling in the lower legs
- Heavy or fatigued legs, especially at the end of the day
- Leg cramping, particularly at night
- Skin irritation and changes to the appearance of the skin
- The formation of large, open sores, known as venous ulcers
If those vein symptoms kept you from enjoying many of your favorite summer activities, consider how those symptoms might affect your ability to get the most from the upcoming holiday season. Painful legs may keep you from holiday parties or Christmas shopping trips. The good news is vein treatments relieve those uncomfortable symptoms right away, so treatment now will mean painless holiday outings in just a few short months.
Vein-Free by Spring!
Most vein treatments today take a bit of time to show off full results. Patients may experience mild bruising and swelling immediately following treatment, which usually subsides in a few days. However, it can take a number of weeks or even months for veins to disappear completely, since the body needs time to eliminate the treated veins through the lymphatic system. Schedule vein treatment now and by the time spring rolls around, you will be ready to don the shorts and show off those vein-free gams.
