Why Fall is the Best Time of Year to Treat Varicose and Spider Veins

Varicose and spider veins are common issues that many patients wish to address. These veins can cause self-consciousness for many, and even be painful for some. At Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa, we offer effective vein treatment options to help patients look and feel their best. We have found that fall and winter tend to be the best times to undergo these treatments. Read on to learn more!


Varicose veins are large, twisted veins that most commonly appear on the legs and feet. For some people, varicose veins may simply be a cosmetic concern, while for others these veins can cause pain and discomfort. Common symptoms of varicose veins include aching, swelling, heaviness, itching, and restlessness, & more.  Varicose veins frequently look dark purple or blue and appear twisted and bulging.  Not all varicose veins look bad, but if you are having any of the common symptoms, it’s good to get checked for underlying issues.


Spider veins are thin lines, webs, or branches of veins that appear blue, red, or purple. They occur when the valves inside of the veins stop working correctly. These veins can be, but are not typically painful, though many people wish to treat them for cosmetic reasons.


While vein treatments can be performed any time of the year, fall and winter tend to be the optimal choice. This is due to many factors, including:

More Time to Heal

Following spider of varicose vein treatment, your body will need time to recover and absorb the veins. Having your treatment in the fall will allow for plenty of time for the unwanted veins to disappear so that you will be ready to flaunt your legs when warmer weather returns.

Compression Socks are Hidden

After vein treatment, you may be asked to wear compression stockings to help with natural blood circulation and speedy healing. Because compression socks are often tall and thick, many people do not like wearing them in the summer. In the fall, however, these socks can be hidden under long pants, and no one will know you are wearing them.

Side Effects are Hidden

Long pants can also be used to hide any potential side effects such as mild bruising, swelling, or redness. By the time spring rolls around, your legs will be fully healed and looking their best!

Can Avoid the Sun

It is advised that you avoid direct sunlight after vein treatment to reduce the potential of skin discoloration. Avoiding the sun is a lot easier in the fall when the temperatures begin to fall and you are not spending your time by the pool.
