Compression Socks & Sclerotherapy

Who should wear Compression socks?

Compression socks/stockings are used to improve blood circulation in your legs which helps reduce inflammation and pain. We recommend using them after any vascular laser treatment, including Sclerotherapy.

They can also be used to treat and manage a wide variety of conditions, such as:

  • Edema
  • Venous Insufficiency
  • Varicose Veins
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis
  • Lymphedema
  • Phlebitis
  • Individuals who suffer from leg ulcers, leg swelling, circulatory problems or spend a lot of time on their feet throughout the day can also benefit from wearing compression socks.

What is Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy erases Spider Veins. It is a safe, simple, outpatient procedure, with most appointments being an hour or less. The treatment consists of an injection of an irritant solution directly into the vein with a very small needle. This will cause the vein to become inflamed and collapse, forcing blood to be channeled through healthier nearby veins. Eventually, your body reabsorbs the spider veins so that they are no longer visible on the surface of your skin.

There is no downtime after this treatment, you can resume your regular activity immediately. We recommend wearing compression socks/stockings for the first 5-10 days to help with the recovery and circulation of the veins. You’ll also need to avoid the sun for a few weeks, as this can lead to dark spots on the skin (aka, fall/winter is the best time to have this treatment done)!
