Why Now is the Right Time to Undergo Vein Treatments

While it’s true that varicose and spider vein treatments can be done at any time in the year, late winter to the beginning of spring is the best time to start treatments. As Coloradans, summer means taking advantage of a variety of outdoor activities that keep you on your feet.

Keep reading to learn why you should start treatments for your varicose or spider veins at Albert Vein Institute so you can enjoy all of your favorite activities this summer.

Your Confidence Will Increase

Many of our patients that have varicose or spider veins tend to feel insecure about the appearance of their legs when they wear a dress during a formal occasion or shorts during warmer weather. At Albert Vein Institute, Dr. Albert uses a combination of phlebectomy and saphenous vein ablation treatments to treat varicose veins, closing off the affected veins, and reducing your symptoms.

With treatments eliminating the appearance of your bulging veins, you’ll regain the confidence to wear whatever you’d like, whenever you want.

You’ll Have Results Before Summer

Summer is a short season — especially with the freezing temperatures winter brings here in Colorado — which means you want to make the most out of this period of fun outdoor activities. With vein treatments, you’ll be able to enjoy everything this season — from hiking to golfing or white water rafting!

In addition to the appearance of your veins, you can also rid yourself of many of the symptoms associated with them; vein treatments treat varicose veins and therefore can reduce any sensations of burning, soreness, or swelling.

Treatments Are Minimally Invasive

Some vein treatments are minimally invasive, this means you can continue to carry out your normal schedule without the need for downtime. Additionally, some spider vein treatments such as sclerotherapy are cosmetic in nature and are therefore minimally invasive and non-surgical. With little to no downtime, you’ll have plenty of time to enjoy everything Colorado has to offer this summer.

The Summer Sun’s UV Rays Can Hinder Your Treatments

As with other procedures, the sun’s UV rays can limit or damage the success of your varicose vein treatment. UV light can cause discoloration near the sight of your vein treatment. It’s best to avoid direct sun exposure for 3-4 weeks following your appointment, so getting started now will help ensure you don’t need to spend a single Colorado summer day indoors.
