Restore Vein and Wellness treats varicose veins and spider veins year-round. However, most patients find that fall and winter are a great time to have treatment for their unsightly veins. The first day of Spring is March 19, 2020 and warm weather in the South is all about shorts, skirts, and dresses. Having varicose and spider veins can dampen your mood to wear your new Spring wardrobe.
Patients receiving Sclerotherapy, the treatment for spider veins, and Endovenous Laser Ablation, the treatment for varicose veins, can expect bruising for 7-14 days post-procedure. It is best to avoid sun exposure and/or wear sunblock during the recovery time, which is recommended for 3-4 weeks, to avoid skin discoloration of the treated areas.
Additionally, the swelling associated with varicose veins and venous disease can take 3-6 months to resolve lending fall and winter great times to begin the recovery process.
Following vein procedures, compression socks are required for 1 week. In the South, compression garments are much more pleasant to wear while it is cold, rather than the stifling heat of the summer months.
So don’t delay and call today to schedule an appointment with Restore Vein and Wellness for a consultation to design a treatment plan tailored to your needs to improve the health and appearance of your legs.
