Cooler weather is healing weather
While it is perfectly safe to have sclerotherapy during the summer, it is recommended that patients avoid sun exposure for at least a couple of weeks after the procedure. Direct sun exposure for the first month after sclerotherapy can cause skin darkening in the treated areas, especially for those with dark skin. It is more comfortable to keep healing skin hidden under long clothing during cooler autumn temperatures.
Also, the summer heat can dilate veins, making itching, cramping, and swelling worse. Engaging the leg muscles in the form of exercise after surgery is vital for healing after sclerotherapy. Outdoor activities such as walking and biking are much more pleasant in the crisp, cool fall air.
