What happens after your treatment
What happens after your treatment Over the next few weeks you may experience some tautness as the vein shrinks. You may also get some bruising but this is unlikely to be severe. You are asked to come back for assessment after 4-6 weeks. A check is made to see if the main vein is blocked as intended. If there are still any varicose veins remaining these are often small and symptomless but if you do feel they are unsightly then having dealt with the reflux we can simply ablate these remaining with
an injection of a foam sclerosant or microavulsions under local anaesthetic. You need to wear compression stockings for two weeks following such treatment.
