How Long Until I Can See Results from Sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy is one way of eliminating the discomfort and the cosmetic implications that come with having varicose veins. This is the primary goal of the American Board of Venous & Lymphatic Medicine and of anyone who has ever suffered from a venous disorder.

If you’ve already discovered all there is to know about sclerotherapy and decided to take the plunge, you’re going to need a physician successful at treating varicose and spider veins. Finally, you’re probably wondering what to do and not to do before and after sclerotherapy in Beverly Hills and how long you’ll have to wait before seeing results. Here’s what you need to know for optimal recovery.

When can I exercise after sclerotherapy?

Invasive procedures for the treatment of varicose veins require patients to be extremely careful for the whole duration of the relatively long recovery period. These procedures and the principles of aftercare that apply to them prevent patients from going back to their normal activities for a while.

Sclerotherapy, much like EVLT (endovenous laser therapy), imposes no such restrictions following the treatment. It gets better: sclerotherapy hardly requires any aftercare. The intervention enables you to resume all your normal physical activities immediately afterwards. You can literally get up right away which is the best part: no downtime. For instance, you are free to go jogging, do yoga and exercise without worrying about any adverse effects.

In fact, resuming your normal way of life, walking and moving your legs is important because it prevents blood clots from forming. The only activities you should definitely avoid for the first 7 days after the treatment are spas and hot baths.

How soon can you fly after sclerotherapy

How soon can you fly after sclerotherapy?

Sclerotherapy doesn’t really affect how soon you can fly. It is the fact that you suffer from varicose veins in the first place that does. Sitting for a longer stretch of time, such as while traveling, has the same effect on your veins as a sedentary lifestyle does.

When it comes to long-distance flying and travel in general, usually defined as anything over 4 hours long, it’s best to check with your treating physician as they know best. This applies to traveling by car, plane, ship or train.

However, you’re most likely free to go for it, as long as you get up every now and then to stretch your legs. Basically, the rules that apply are the rules that apply regardless of whether you’ve already had the treatment or not: move your legs from time to time.

How long before final result from sclerotherapy?

The duration of time that has to pass before you can see results from sclerotherapy depends on the severity of your condition. The severity of your condition will also determine the number of treatments you have to undergo. Still, it all depends on your particular case and your doctor’s professional opinion.

Bulging, prominent veins will require more treatments and results can be expected in three to four months. Smaller veins that are unsightly but all in all harmless will require fewer sessions. In case of these smaller veins, expect definitive results within a period of three to six weeks.
