Why Winter Is the Perfect Time for You To Get Rid of Your Varicose Veins
- Posted on: Dec 15 2018
With summer behind us and winter in full force you may think that you have another six months to conceal your legs from shorts and swimsuits without feeling self-conscious about your varicose veins, but here at Dr. Heeringa’s office, we encourage patients to think more about their varicose veins during the winter. But why? Let’s take a closer look.
It Takes Time
One of the most popular treatments that Dr. Heeringa uses to help patients get rid of varicose veins is called sclerotherapy. By injecting a saline solution into the veins, sclerotherapy works to make the veins collapse. Over time, the veins are eventually absorbed by the body; leaving you with a vein free appearance. But just like a lot of procedures, sclerotherapy takes time for people to see full results. Even though you may notice a visible reduction of varicose veins in a couple of weeks, it can take about six entire months for you to see full results which means that if you do it now, you will be ready to show off your legs in June.
You’ll Get to Recover
Sclerotherapy doesn’t require a whole lot of recovery on your end, but giving your veins some time to heal after treatment will help you be able to enjoy results later on down the line which is something for you to think about.
If you don’t want to spend another summer hiding your shorts and swimsuits in your closet because you’re embarrassed varicose veins then let Dr. Heeringa can help you get rid of them for good.
