When it comes to showing off your legs, visions of lying on the beach at the Jersey Shore or strolling down the avenues of summer Farmers Markets may come to mind. However, now, even in the dead of winter, is the perfect time to start considering varicose veins and spider veins removal. It might actually seem impractical or crazy to get the treatment done now, when you’re bundled up in layers of clothes to keep warm. Hear us out though. The lack of sun or warmth outside shouldn’t shy you away from treating your varicose veins. In fact, here are three reasons you should call Dr. Jeffrey Gosin at Shore Vascular & Vein Center to make an appointment now:
Get it over with
You may be thinking there’s no need to show off your legs until the temperature starts to rise. Fair enough. But you’re not the only one with that opinion, and come summer, our office tends to get busy. If you book your appointment for varicose vein removal now you can beat the rush that warmer weather brings. And you don’t want to be caught off-guard and invited to the first barbeque of the summer, only to feel self-conscious for another year in a row, because of your legs. If you take care of it now, you’ll be ready for all that summer brings without needing to think twice.
Be prepared for a spontaneous sojourn
Along the same lines, one of the best ways to beat the winter blues is to follow the sun to a tropical locale. Sometimes you’ll find a deal too good to pass up (especially during the off-season!), and if you get your varicose veins treated now, you won’t have to pass up on it! Who knows? Your smooth legs may even provide a little incentive for a sunny getaway.
Use it as an excuse for a day off
The treatment of varicose veins is an outpatient procedure, meaning you’re in and out of our office usually within an hour or less. On top of that, recovery time is minimal – you could even go back to work for a few hours after the procedure. However, we recommend using the day to relax and recuperate. Request the day off work, or clear your schedule for the day. Make your varicose vein removal appointment for the morning and use the rest of the afternoon for a little “me time.” Dine in at your favorite restaurant, or order take and out and settle in for a mini movie marathon. Because of the advanced treatment methods – like the Excel V Laser System, sclerotherapy, phlebectomy and the Venefit procedure – pain is also greatly reduced. And so while we don’t suggest you hit the slopes or go for a six-mile run on the treadmill immediately following your procedure, chance are, any discomfort you feel will be minimal enough you can still go ahead and enjoy the rest of your day.
