1. You are all covered up: After most vein treatment procedures, your legs may have a small bruise or swelling for a few weeks. Most patients agree that this is easier to cover up in the winter than during the shorts/skirts months of summer.
2. Compression stockings are warm: Some vein treatments necessitate wearing compression stockings for up to a month after the procedure. This is far more tolerable in the cold months ahead.
3. Anticipate the spring: Some vein treatments require over a month before your legs start to show the improvements you are looking for. Come the spring and summer, you will be glad you didn’t prolong your suffering any longer. Being treated in the summer could mean you don’t get to show off your new legs until the following year!
4. Deductibles: Many of our consultations and procedures are covered by health insurance, including Medicare. Have you spent some or all of your deductible this year? Why not be treated at less of a cost to you this winter? Waiting until next year may mean starting with your full deductible costs.
4. Get seen sooner: The summer is a busy season for vein treatment. People are more aware of the appearance of their legs and we are often flooded with new patients. Come visit the Vein Institute of Blue Bell this winter and you will be seen and treated sooner than in the warmer months. Give us a call at: 267-416-9534.
