what to expect after varicose vein treatmentEach patient at Premier Vein Clinics is unique thus, the treatment plan is individualized to meet their desires and what is clinically appropriate for their specific condition. There is a clear connection between patient satisfaction and having clear expectations of what will happen post treatment. The Premier Vein Clinics staff works to educate patients and set realistic goals cooperatively with them. Below are some things to keep in mind to gain a more clear perspective of what to expect after treatment of your varicose veins:

Recovery after a varicose vein treatment. Patients may feel sore or uncomfortable immediately following a procedure, but discomfort is generally manageable and should normally subside within two weeks. Patients are instructed to maintain daily physical activity to reduce the likelihood of blood clots and expedite the recovery process. Each patient will receive procedure-specific instructions from their provider explaining recommended restrictions. Most people are able to return to work the very same day and encouraged to resume a normal routine as soon as possible.

Relief of symptoms following a vein procedure. Generally speaking, most patients can expect to experience a 90% reduction in symptoms such as throbbing, aching, and swelling immediately following treatment. If venous disease has been present for many years there may be more significant damage, and may require more invasive treatment options. Overall, you can expect to experience an improvement in aesthetic and physical symptoms of varicose veins post treatment.

Importance of following doctor’s orders. In order to ensure the best possible outcome, a patient must take the time to understand any limitations post procedure and adhere to any restrictions given to them by their provider. It is important to make note of these things prior to the procedure so if needed, accommodations can be made for work and any personal activities.
