How To Prepare For Sclerotherapy

Before Treatment:

Avoid taking Aspirin and other anti-inflammatory medications for 10 days prior to treatment (this will reduce the amount of bruising that may result from the treatment).

* Disregard this recommendation if you are taking a small dose Aspirin at the recommendation of your physician for cardiovascular health

The Day of the treatment:

  1. Avoid waxing or shaving your legs
  2. Avoid using skin creams on your legs so that the tapes required for treatment will stick to your legs
  3. Bring support/compression stockings to wear after the treatment
  4. Eat regular meals
  5. Bring shorts to wear during treatment if you prefer
  6. Bring pants or a long skirt to wear following the procedure
