What does after treatment care involve?

At Vein Doctors Group our treatment after care is manageable and straight forward

Our three-step treatment after care includes:

1) Medical Grade Compression Stockings

Following treatment you will be required to wear a medical venous compression stocking to assist the process of sealing off abnormal veins. This should be worn from 7-14 days after treatment. This compression treatment is undertaken to minimise:

  • Dark pigmentation of the treated areas
  • The risk of deep vein thrombosis
  • The number of treatments required
  • The possibility of recurrence

At Vein Doctors Group we have selected the most effective, comfortable and lightweight stockings that are a world away from the traditional hot and thick stockings. Although we recommend our patients seek treatment during Autumn, Winter and Spring, these stockings are still appropriate for many patients having treatment during Summer. We treat many patients from North Queensland in the peak of Summer, but of course treating one’s leg will be more comfortable during the cooler months.

2) Walking

Immediately after your first treatment session you will need to walk for at least 30 minutes. For the duration of the treatment you will be required to walk for one 30-40 minute session. This is done to enhance the results achieved, increase comfort and reduce complications by increasing the flow of blood to your treated leg.

3) Follow Up Appointments

Attending follow up appointments ensures that we can achieve the best possible long term results.

Many of our medical staff have experienced this treatment themselves and can help guide you through your after treatment care program.
