What’s the Recovery Time?
We are happy to let you know this is a walk-in, walk-out procedure. Therefore, right after the treatment, we will apply some protective stockings and you can instantly walk.
Within the first 24h, you might experience some heaviness, but it will settle over the next few days. Most patients can go straight back to work or any other daily activity. We recommend avoiding strenuous exercises for the first two weeks after treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
How bad does it hurt?
We use a local anaesthetic that blocks any sensations and eliminates pain. Some people could experience pinpoint cramping or a slight burning when the doctor injects the solution. Apart from this, ultrasound guided Sclerotherapy is not painful at all.
Possible side effects
It could happen straight after the procedure and even mild aching the same night. Still, most patients don’t take any medication. If it bothers them, a Paracetamol or Nurofen is all that’s needed.
