Hiding your varicose veins under long pants this fall won’t change your vein condition or the painful symptoms.

Fall is a great time to move forward with that vein treatment you have been putting off. With legs safely under cover, you can eliminate those unsightly veins so your legs are ready for baring in time for your winter holiday. Check out these benefits of treating your leg veins during the autumn season.

Easier Scheduling

Vein clinics often see an influx of patients in the spring and early summer, since this is the time those unsightly leg veins come out of hiding. By fall, fewer people are thinking about their swollen vessels, which means you may find more availability for your own vein procedure. This allows you more flexibility in your scheduling so you can work around your personal schedule more conveniently.

Less Sun Exposure

When lasers or other methods of treatment are used on veins, UV rays from the sun can actually cause discoloration of the skin that may be permanent. In the fall, it is much easier to avoid exposing your treated areas to the sun’s rays for the prescribed period of time. This will ensure the results of your procedure will be the best possible.

Fall Vein Treatment – More Comfortable Recovery

Compression stockings are a common component of many vein treatments. These gradient-pressure socks are often worn after a procedure for a prescribed period of time to encourage healthy blood flow and healing to the treatment area. While compression stockings have evolved considerably from those thick white socks of the past, they can still be a bit uncomfortable during the hot months of summer. With cooler temperatures this time of year, the sock become more comfortable and easier to hide underneath clothing.

Time for Results

Today’s vein treatments typically eliminate varicose veins from the inside out by sealing the veins closed. After the vein collapses, it is usually reabsorbed by the body over time until it is completely gone. For this reason, the results may appear gradually, in the days and weeks following the procedure. If you schedule your treatment early, you will have completely vein-free legs just in time for your tropical winter holiday.

Many Options

In the past, the only treatment for varicose veins was a painful surgical procedure known as vein stripping. Today, that treatment has been replaced with less invasive procedures that effectively eradicate swollen vessels with minimal discomfort and downtime. Dr. Draughn at Vein Specialists of the Carolinas offers a variety of these procedures to allow him to tailor each treatment to the unique needs of his patients. No matter which procedure you have, you can rest assured the procedure will be relatively quick and you will be able to return to your fall festivities in no time at all.

Fall is coming, why not make this the season that you say goodbye to your unsightly, uncomfortable varicose veins for good? To learn more about your treatment options, contact Vein Specialists of the Carolinas at 704-861-2072 or 704-544-5245.
