Here’s Why Fall is the Best Time for Vein Treatment

Posted by Miller Vein Team on Oct 4, 2018 3:22:00 PM

Life gets busy with kids, grandkids, work, travel, and everything else that life throws your way. You may always find a reason to postpone vein treatment, but it’s important to remember that vein conditions are progressive. Not only can varicose and spider veins get worse if left untreated, they are oftentimes more difficult to treat the longer they are ignored.

Here’s why fall just might be the best time for vein treatment:

Get Ready to Step into Spring – Vein Treatment Takes Time

When you start vein treatment in fall, it’s likely that your legs will feel and look their best just in time for the spring (and summer!) months. Allow us to explain: At Miller Vein, we combine varicose vein procedures whenever possible to save you time and money. When it comes to cosmetic treatment for spider veins, multiple treatments over time are required to achieve optimal results.

Minimally-invasive vein procedures work by collapsing the diseased veins and redirecting blood flow to the surrounding healthy veins. Once treatment shuts down the diseased veins, they are gradually reabsorbed into the body. This process of reabsorption may take up to several weeks. Once reabsorption is complete, you will see the full results of successful vein treatment.

Waiting to Schedule Treatment Could be Costly

By this time of year, you may have met your insurance deductible. Or, if you have a flexible spending account (FSA) or health savings account (HSA), you may be in a position where you need to finish using those funds by the end of the year.

After the new year, it's likely that your insurance deductible resets and that you will lose any unused FSA funds.* And remember: varicose vein treatment is usually covered by insurance since it is a medical treatment. Whether you need touch-ups or have been putting off the start of your treatment...now is the perfect time.
