Why Winter is a Great Time to Have Your Varicose Veins Treated

People often ask if one particular time of the year is better than others to have varicose veins treated. Varicose veins can be treated during any time of the year. However, there are many reasons why the winter is often the most convenient and preferable season for many people.


Easier to Keep Private

During the colder months, our legs are often covered by our clothing. Many people prefer to proceed with treatment when no one will notice anything going on. It allows them to keep their situation discreet and private.


In addition, many varicose vein treatments, and varicose vein removal Atlantic County, require the temporary use of compression stockings. During the winter months those stockings are hidden under the pants. Also, being close to the Shore, many people want to spend a lot of time at the beach, which is not very conducive to the use of compression stockings either. Having your veins treated during the winter months avoids these issues.


Limit to Sun Exposure

Another reason that winter is a preferable time to treat varicose veins for many people is that certain treatments require limiting sun exposure for a period of time after treatment. That is usually not a problem for most people during the winter months in our region.


Ready by Summer

Many people want to have their legs looking as good as possible by the summer. All of the treatments performed in our center are minimally-invasive and do not require long periods of recovery. However, time is required to schedule a procedure, obtain health insurance authorization and receive follow-up. By having treatment in the winter, everything can be completed long before the beach and bathing suit season arrives. Unfortunately, people often come to our center in May or June wanting “great legs” by summer. While we can, and do perform treatment all year, by having your treatment during the winter months, it is usually easy to have everything completed in time for the beautiful summer months at The Shore.
