Your skin will look pink in the treated area, but it will resolve after a few days. Your skin will be sensitive to sunlight, so avoid direct sun exposure.
You can wear compression stockings to relieve your more prominent veins of pressure and aid in healthier blood flow. Compression stockings must be worn at all times while you are in the process of recovering from the treatment.
Take note that no pressure should be applied to the treated part of the skin. Avoid wearing tight clothes to prevent any pressures on the affected areas. Avoid wearing high heels for a couple of weeks if the treatment part is your legs. Another thing to note is to avoid heavy lifting and no heavy exercising for the next few weeks post treatment. Likewise, wear your SPF 50 sunscreen even if you’ll just get out for a brief period of time under the sun. An antibacterial cream – Bacitracin must also be worn on the treated part of the skin to prevent any infections during healing.
Some doctors offer a minimally invasive operation as an effective treatment for some patients. But most patients like you don’t have the luxury of time to go over a minor operation to get your leg veins successfully treated – hence we offer a safer and less invasive alternative at Tiam Spa.
