During sclerotherapy treatments, patients are kept as comfortable as possible. Due to the use of multiple injections, this procedure will not be painless but does not cause prolonged discomfort. Mild cramping may occur for one to two minutes during solution injection.
Recovery from sclerotherapy is minimal, and patients can return home immediately after therapy. Walking and light activity after the procedure are possible. Patients should avoid intensive exercise. Patients should avoid over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications, hot baths, direct access to sunlight, and hot compresses. Medical-strength compression stockings are necessary for one to three weeks after treatment.
