When Is the Right Time of Year to Have My Varicose Veins Treated?

Have you been putting off treating your varicose veins because you want to choose the best season for it? Many people agree that spring and winter are the two best seasons for undergoing treatment. Learn why people prefer getting their veins treated in those seasons. Then, you can schedule a consultation to find out if you’re a candidate for a minimally invasive procedure such as radiofrequency ablation (RFA) to close off the damaged veins.

Reasons to Treat Varicose Veins in the Spring

If you are currently suffering from varicose veins, you can get treatment now, before summer arrives. First, it’s not nearly as hot as it will be during the upcoming summer months. Thus, you can wear compression stockings before and after treatment without the heat holding you back. 

Also, if you have your veins treated now, you’ll be ready to show off the results when the summer hits. Thus, you won’t feel self-conscious about putting on a bathing suit or walking around in shorts this summer. With that in mind, consider getting your veins treated now before the summer hits.

Reasons to Treat Varicose Veins in Winter

People also like to get varicose veins treated during the winter. First, of course, it’s easy to wear compression stockings in the winter since it’s so cold. Second, the symptoms are often more severe during the winter months due to a lack of activity. Sitting around allows more blood to pool, causing the symptoms to intensify. In fact, it’s during the winter when many people realize they can’t keep living with varicose veins.  

Fortunately, you still have time to avoid the harsh symptoms that will occur in winter. While some people wait until it becomes too intense, you can treat them now, before the cold weather arrives.
