If you've been putting off treating your varicose veins, the best time to act is now. With summer moving behind us, experts from USA Vein Clinics say that we're coming up on the ideal time of year to say goodbye to unsightly veins.
Cooler temps make now the best time to treat varicose veins
Since wearing compression stockings is often required for the healing process, many patients are hesitant to undergo procedures during the hot summer months. The good news is that since they can easily be worn under jeans or pants, you can treat your vascular issues without anyone being the wiser. In addition to offering a wide variety of in-and-out procedures, USA Vein Clinics also fits patients for compression stockings that boast ultimate fit and comfort.
Another perk to beginning your procedures in the fall? By the time summer rolls around again, your legs will be beach ready! In addition to wearing compression stockings, it's important to rest up after undergoing vein treatment. As the weather cools down, it makes for an optimal time to do so.
With 26 USA Vein Clinics throughout the country, it's now easier than ever to address these problems. And the newest location in Washington Heights now provides people in the Tri-state area with even more access to direct care.
With the cool autumn months in full swing, patients can experience effective, minimally invasive treatments firsthand. Among the popular services offered is EVLT (endovenous laser therapy) treatment, which represents an innovative new way to repair veins that aren't functioning properly. Rather than removing the vein, this approach uses laser energy to seal it off.
Varicose veins aren't the only thing treated at USA Vein Clinics. People suffering from reticular and spider veins can also receive premier, minimally invasive treatment at various locations.
While the cosmetic benefits alone can't be understated, these treatments also pack a serious health punch. If left untreated, circulation issues can cause relentless cramping, heaviness in the legs and more -- including dangerous ulcers, infections and blood clots. Taking the time to address them can be a life changer.
In addition to their vein clinics, USA Vein also operates two vascular centers in the New York area. Here, patients can receive effective, in-and-out treatment for a number of health issues. Peripheral arterial disease (PAD), for instance, is a serious condition in which cholesterol and fat accumulate in the artery walls. This, in turn, impairs effective blood flow.
At USA Vascular Centers, PAD can be treated with a non-surgical procedure called stent angioplasty. This approach uses a mesh stent to restore healthy blood flow in the affected artery.
Because they value swift and timely treatment, USA Vein Clinics boast extended hours on Saturdays and Sundays to help accommodate more patients during the busy season. When it comes to insurance plans, don't fret if you've already met your deductable; USA Vein Clinics is also happy to report that flex dollars and health savings accounts can be used to reduce out-of-pocket expenses. In addition, Medicare and Medicaid are also accepted.
