Why It’s Best to Treat Your Varicose Veins in the Fall

While there is no perfect time to treat your leg veins, it’s been said by many a vein specialist that if you’re going to have treatment, it’s best to treat varicose veins in the fall.

That is great news for the approximately one in five adults who will develop varicose veins during their lifetime.

As we ease into October, this may be the best time to finally address your varicose veins, we explore why below.

4 Reasons to Treat Varicose Veins in the Fall

Stocking Weather

One of the best ways to treat varicose veins is through the addition of compression stockings to your wardrobe.

The cooler fall weather makes an ideal time to add this piece of clothing to your fall fashion.

Better Healing

The warmer weather can be detrimental to aiding in the heading of your varicose veins.

That makes the fall a great time to avoid heat and damaging UV radiation.

Insurance Turnover

Most insurance plans begin again in January which makes the fall a great time to pay less out of pocket depending on your individual plan.

Ideal Timeline

Most patients require many months to finally experience their desired treatment results.

When you are treated in the fall you are giving your veins many months to fully heal just in time to rock your favorite shorts and bathing suits next summer!

Varicose Vein Risks

If untreated, your varicose veins can lead to more serious vein concerns such as deep vein thrombosis or even peripheral artery disease.

How to Avoid Varicose Veins

There are certain lifestyle choices you can make if you are prone to developing varicose veins.

Avoiding sitting or standing more long periods of time, frequent exercise, weight loss, and loose clothing can all promote healthy blood flow.
