Sclerotherapy Aftercare 101: What to Do After a Vein Treatment 

Sclerotherapy is a great way to permanently get rid of spider veins and even larger reticular veins without surgery or downtime. However, our team at AesthetiCare wants all of our clients to understand that following sclerotherapy aftercare instructions is vital for gaining the best results. 

During your consultation and appointment, you’ll receive a personalized guide based on your needs and goals. With that in mind, here are some general tips you should follow to make the most out of your sclerotherapy vein treatment. 

How to take care of your body after getting sclerotherapy

Post-treatment instructions are quite simple and easy to follow, yet are crucial to ensure your scleropathy treatment is safe. Since sclerotherapy causes veins to swell and close up, you have got to take care of the treatment areas to avoid any negative effects. In general, you should:

  • Wear a compression garment continuously for 3 to 7 days
  • Avoid contact sports, strenuous cardio workouts, or use of leg weights for at least 10 days
  • Avoid hot tubs, saunas, warm baths, and sun exposure for at least three days

After about ten days, you can return to activity as usual, and your veins will slowly fade and disappear over the following weeks and months. 

How to prevent more spider veins from forming

Sometimes spider veins are unavoidable (we know… such a bummer), but that doesn’t mean there aren’t simple things you can do to keep your skin as vein free as possible. 

 Ways you can prevent spider veins include:

  • Exercising regularly
  • Maintaining a healthy weight
  • Wearing compression hose
  • Eating a high-fiber low-sodium diet
  • Changing your sitting/standing position regularly (Ever heard the rule to never cross your legs on a plane? This is why.)

We also recommend getting maintenance treatments once or twice a year to get rid of new spider veins that form.

Krissy is thorough and easy to talk to. She is confident in her skills and put me at ease.

Jessica is always keeping me up to date on new and exciting treatments. Although I have done multiple Intracel treatments in the past, this time she encouraged me to add on PRP. I highly recommend. Healing time was so fast!

Jessica did a great job always checking with me on how I was feeling. She was always concerned about how I was doing and doing the best job she could!

Jennifer explained everything in details and was very diligent in making sure that the procedure and follow up went well

I was given the proper guidance and steps to take to make my skin better. I truly love the honesty, care, and time taken to help find solutions to make my skin better. The before and after pictures truly show a difference on how well the procedure works. And I’m still noticing differences as my skin continues to heal.
