It’s true! These blustery temperatures in Northern Nevada are the best time to prep your legs and get them ready for Spring and Summer! If you’ve been wanting to rid your legs of troublesome varicose and spider veins, now’s the ideal time to do so!

Varicose vein and spider vein treatments can eliminate veins that create bulging and twisting lines in the lower body – and relieve common symptoms like: pain, aching, fatigue, swelling, leg heaviness, burning, and itching.

Both varicose veins and spider veins are cause by venous insufficiency which is this backward flow of blood that occurs when the tiny valves inside veins which keep the blood flowing in a certain direction, are damaged, and wear out, allowing blood to collect inside the affected area. The result?  Major swelling of the vessels, which can often be seen on the outside of the legs. If unchecked this can result in tissue damage, as well as damage to the surrounding blood vessels. Skin changes, like discoloration and thickening will most often occur and all of this can be extremely painful.

At Reno Vein Clinic, we offer some of the most advanced and state-of-the-art treatments available including Sclerotherapy and Radiofrequency Closure. All are minimally invasive and require minimal downtime and recovery.

Here are a few more reasons why wintertime is truly the best time for varicose and spider vein treatment.
– Wearing seasonally appropriate long pants and tights will hide the mild bruising/swelling that comes from vein treatment.
– It is more comfortable to wear compression stockings and conceal them in the cooler months.
– While wearing winter clothes, affected, treated areas are unlikely to be exposed to sunlight, which can cause discoloration during the time of treatment.
– More time to see the results is provided, since warmer weather is still a few months away.

There really is no better time to get rid if your varicose and spider veins and get your legs looking the way you want them to! Contact us at Reno Vein Clinic for more information! (775) 329-3100.
