Summer Legs in Winter

"Summer can seem like miles away when the cold winds of winter are blowing in Alaska. Don’t lose heart. Spring is officially just 45 days away and winter is a great time to get varicose veins and spider veins treated.

A few reasons why winter is one of the best times to get your leg health evaluated:

  1. Compression Therapy: Most insurance companies will want you to wear compression stockings for a few months before they approve treatment, and while support garments are now available in stylish colors and patterns and should be worn all year long; most people prefer to wear them in the winter.
  2. Post Treatment Healing: While the non-invasive treatments we offer for the treatment of varicose and spider veins are virtually pain free, there is a period of time between treatment and your legs looking their best. Obtaining treatment now gives you a few months to heal before summer and shorts on the beach.

Additionally, with the advent of a new year, it’s a good time to take stock of our leg health, to review any declines that occur with every passing year, and to examine what we can do about any problems.

Even if you believe you have no leg symptoms; gravity is affecting your legs each and every day by slowly stretching your veins.   For most of us, this will eventually cause problems in the vascular health of our legs."
