Although Fall is full of so many fun activities like apple picking, hayrides, Halloween, and Thanksgiving, it’s also a busy time of year in the healthcare industry as patients scramble to schedule medical treatment before their annual deductible renews! So, along with deciding how many bags of Halloween candy to buy, this time of the year is also the best time to consider your Vein Health! Many people neglect their vein issues until they start to have serious problems, especially if they have not yet met their annual insurance deductible, but there are several reasons this time of year is the perfect time to see Dr. Robert Cutchen for vein treatment!
1. You Have Met Your Deductible (or nearly so):
You’ve probably had your share of trips to the doctor for other things during the year and have slowly met your deductible. Now is the time to take care of your vein health since any procedures that are deemed medically necessary will be covered by your insurance with little or no out of pocket cost to you!
2. You Have Remaining FSA/HSA Funds
Although HSA funds will roll-over, FSA funds will not – you use them or lose them! These can also frequently be used towards cosmetic spider vein treatment, which is not usually typically covered by insurance.
3. Fall and Winter Can Keep Your Treatments Comfortable:
For most vein issues, insurance companies mandate the least invasive treatment, such as medical-grade compression stockings, be tried first. Thankfully, the fall and winter months are perfect for these tight and warm garments. Additionally, the cooler weather means long pants, long skirts, and even stylish boots which can serve to protect your skin from sun exposure as well as hide the fact that you are getting treatments. Compression hosiery is also required after varicose vein treatment, as well as after spider vein treatment. When spring rolls around again, people will admire your great-looking legs and never know you had vein treatment!

4. Your Recovery Can Take Place Before the Holidays and Before Spring Returns:
If you begin your journey to vein health early in the fall months, you will more than likely have completed your treatments before the whirlwind of holiday activity in December. If you happen to get a later start, you will still be recovered fully by springtime and it’s leg-revealing fashions and activities!
5. You Will Look and Feel Better:
Any time is a good time to work on vein issues BEFORE complications arise. After all, who doesn’t want to look and feel their very best? If your legs have a heavy, achy feeling or you have problematic varicose veins, there is no time like the present to seek treatment and feel better, as vein disease is progressive and will never improve on its own!
Dr. Cutchen of Albuquerque Vein & Laser Institute treated my painful, bulging varicose veins with his in-office vein procedures, including endovenous laser ablation to close up the diseased vein. The results were much better than I expected, and I am thrilled with both the cosmetic results, with how my legs look, and the medical results, with how my legs now feel. The procedure was a bit more in-depth than I initially anticipated but was well worth the results. Dr. Cutchen is the best vein doctor!.
