Recovery starts with proper steps right after sclerotherapy treatment in Downey

Sclerotherapy is an effective treatment to remove spider veins. Studies have found this procedure eliminates this web-like discoloration in 50 to 80 percent of cases.

Before you even leave the office, Dr. Blose and his team take steps to increase the success of treatment and decrease the risk of side effects.

Immediately after treatment

After the affected vein or veins have been treated, you’ll rest for about 15 to 20 minutes. Dr. Blose will then check the injection sites to see how the solution is affecting these areas.

Moving around reduces the chance of blood clots, so we will recommend you get up and walk following treatment.

While you should be able to return to normal activities the day of the procedure, strenuous physical activity should be avoided for a few weeks. You should arrange for a family member or friend to pick you up or wait at our office while you get treatment. The procedure usually lasts about 30 minutes. The time required varies on the number of veins receiving treatment.

Over the longer term

You should avoid sun exposure for about two weeks. Combined with inflammation around the injection site, the sun can cause spotted dark areas. Compression stockings and bandages may be worn to place continued pressure on the treated veins in the weeks following treatment. You should continue to stay active during this period. Walking around and moving your legs keeps the blood flowing. This not only minimizes adverse effects but speeds healing time.

Part of the healing process may include bruising, raised red spots, small sores and tiny red blood vessels near where the solution was administered. Dr. Blose will want to see you for follow-up around a month after treatment. He can assess progress. It may be decided that more injections to the treatment area are needed. Sclerotherapy can safely be performed every four to six weeks until desired results are achieved.

Fading usually occurs in about three to six weeks as the body naturally absorbs the veins.

Sclerotherapy recovery starts in Downey with safe administration of this vein-reducing treatment from a knowledgeable and experienced practitioner. Once veins are treated, they generally don’t come back. You can feel more confident about your appearance and be free of any discomfort, aches, itching and soreness that may accompany this condition.
