What to Expect After Treatment



With smaller veins, a small piece of gauze will be taped over each injected vein and should remain for 24 hours after treatment.

If larger veins are treated, we may recommend leg elevation for a few minutes or a compression stocking for a short period of time after treatment.

You may notice slight tenderness for a few days in the treated vein after treatment.

Temporary bruising around the treated area may occur; the length of time that it takes for this to resolve depends on the size of the vein treated, with larger veins taking longer to disappear.

Once a varicose vein is effectively treated, it will not come back. However, nothing can prevent new spider or varicose veins from occurring. If varicose veins do reoccur, they may be treated 6 to 12 months later in the same manner that the original ones were treated. There is no limit to the number of treatments that can be done.
