After Each Procedure

Post procedure ultrasound is required 3-7 days following procedure. Our
staff will coordinate this ultrasound with you. Exercise is not necessary prior to post-op ultrasounds.

Activity

You may resume regular activity. The day after treatment, you may resume exercising
with no restrictions.

Pain / Discomfort

For mild discomfort following treatment, you may take over-the-counter pain reliever. Taking Ibuprofen/Motrin for 24-48 hours post treatment is encouraged, as it can help decrease inflammation in the treated extremity as you heal.

Dressings

Following the procedure the treated leg will be dressed in an ACE wrap. You may loosen or tighten the ACE wraps as necessary. The morning following the procedure, the ACE wraps may be removed and you are clear to shower. You will find that Dr. Johnson placed steri strips over the incision areas – you may get these wet in the shower, but please allow that they fall off on their own. You are not required to wear compression stockings post treatment.

Please Note

Occasionally you may be able to feel the treated vein. This will feel like a cord under your skin and may change colors. This is temporary, and should improve as you continue to heal.

If you have any questions or concerns please contact the office.
