Some patients do not notice any discernible improvements for several weeks after the procedure. Don’t worry though. It takes time for the body to reabsorb the unwanted tissue. In some cases, multiple treatments might be required. There may be some temporary post-procedural side-effects including:

  • The region around the treatment site might be slightly discolored for several hours after the conclusion of treatment. Pink and red hues are the most common. 
  • Around the treatment area, you may notice a warm sensation or stingingーsimilar to a mild sunburn. This feeling typically fades within a couple of hours. Applying moist cloths or a cold pack can help lessen the discomfort.
  • There may be some mild swelling that hangs around for several days.

Additionally, patients should be careful about applying creams and lotions to the area. best vein clinic near me

Preventive Tips 

  1. Maintain A Healthy Diet

Maintaining a healthy weight significantly lowers your risk of developing varicose veins because obesity is one of the major risk factors.

Certain foods, such citrus fruits and those that contain omega 3 fatty acids, are proven to promote circulation in addition to a healthy diet.

The circulation is also improved by spicy foods, so the next time you’re out, use a lot of hot sauce!

  1. Stretch Before Any Kind Of Work

Take frequent breaks to stretch if you find yourself standing or sitting for extended periods of time.

Stretching prevents venous damage and circulates blood that has become stagnant.

Keep up the yoga, those of you who love it! A recent study found that yoga can lower blood pressure, prevent blood vessel calcifications, and improve circulation.

It was published in The Chronicle Journal. Do you not enjoy yoga? The next time you’re at work, try performing calf muscle pumps!

Simply place your feet flat on the ground and lengthen your calves until you are standing on the balls of your feet.

A couple of these will assist in reviving blood that has become sluggish.

  1. Daily Exercise Can Also Help

Regular exercise reenergizes the body and aids with blood circulation.

In fact, studies have shown that when it comes to treating cardiac disease, exercise can be equally as effective as medications.

Any exercise that works the calf muscles is excellent for enhancing blood circulation in the legs.

Excellent examples include riding, surfing, walking, and jogging.

Making even small changes, like parking a bit further away from the store or using the stairs, can have a big impact!

Vein Post-procedure

I was grateful that the staff warned me about the bruises that can last up to 2 weeks after injections. In my case the bruising wasn’t that bad after the first treatment but it helpful to know up front. I’m glad that I decided to start back in February so that my legs were covered during the early days. The bruising was a little painful at first but the results speak for themselves and I would gladly do it all over again. I tell my friends not to be scared, just get it done.
