Is There Downtime with Vein Treatment?

Is There Downtime with Vein Treatment?

Another great question I hear about vein treatment at Allure Medical is: “What is the downtime after the procedure, and what can I expect afterwards?”.

There is little to no downtime after treatment, and our patients are able to drive themselves home after their office visit. The procedure itself doesn’t take much time, and while a compression bandage is placed on the area, our patients are mobile and able to go about their daily activities immediately. We encourage you to walk afterwards to help with circulation. In fact, our providers believe the more active you are, the better you’ll feel. We might advise you to stay out of the hot tub or situations that might generate heat, but otherwise, there are very few restrictions.

In terms of discomfort after the procedure, there might be some aching in the legs, but it’s generally not enough pain for our patients to need medication. Compression stockings may alleviate any pressure, especially if you have a job that requires you to sit for extended periods of time. However, you’ll actually heal more quickly if you have some motion immediately after treatment.
