Why Winter Is the Best Season to Treat Unsightly Veins

As snow begins to fall it is easy for your mind to wander to summer. Days spent basking in the warm sunshine. Family trips to the beach. Dressing comfortably in tank tops, shorts and flip flops.

If you have unsightly veins in your legs and want to avoid wearing cover ups to the beach next year, it is important to know that winter is the best time to get your veins treated.

Here’s why:

  1. Skin - It is more difficult to treat veins when your skin is tanned. This is because tanning makes skin less elastic, alters its normal pigmentation and zaps moisture out of it. Winter weather makes it easier to avoid direct sunlight exposure a week before and after your appointment, which is highly recommended for optimal results.
  2. Clothing - Winter is the perfect time to bundle up and protect your skin from the sun. It is also the most convenient season to wear compression stockings, which you are advised to wear before and after treatment. These not only provide an extra layer of warmth, but also help improve blood flow which is critical during vein treatments.
  3. Downtime - Winter is a less active season allowing you to rest up and closely monitor your progress. Even though this is an outpatient procedure, you still should give your body enough time to appropriately heal after a treatment.
