4 Rules for a Quick Sclerotherapy Recovery

Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that is used to treat spider veins and small varicose veins. During the varicose vein treatment, the abnormal veins will be injected with a solution that causes them to swell, collapse, and fade away over time. 

This varicose vein treatment is a safe procedure and often, patients are allowed to return to normal activity the same day, with limited restrictions. To ensure the safest and fastest sclerotherapy recovery, here are four rules you must follow: 

  1. Wear compression stockings. It is recommended that you wear compression stockings for at least 2-3 weeks after your sclerotherapy treatment. Your vein specialist can help you determine the degree of compression needed and how long you’ll have to wear them for.

    How To Choose The Right Compression Stockings 

  2. Avoid the sun. Overexposure to the sun can cause your skin to age prematurely, and it can also lead to the development of spider veins. To allow your veins to heal properly, make sure you avoid sun exposure for at least two weeks and always wear a sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher, when you are outside. 

  3. Avoid strenuous exercise. Sclerotherapy doesn’t usually require any downtime, and patients are able to walk immediately after treatment. However, plan to take it easy for a few days and avoid any strenuous exercise for at least three days post-treatment. 

  4. Always follow up with your vein specialist. You should schedule a follow up appointment with your vein specialist to ensure proper healing and to determine that no additional treatments are required. It is important to keep this appointment to achieve optimal results from your varicose vein treatment. 

How Long Will It Take My Veins to Disappear After Sclerotherapy? 

Small veins will usually disappear faster than larger ones. Spider veins will disappear in 3-6 weeks, and larger veins will respond in approximately three months. If your veins do respond to treatment, they won’t reappear.
