  • Keep your compression stockings on for 72 hours following the procedure, then for an additional 10 days while you’re awake.
  • Walk every day for an hour.
  • You may do any other kind of exercise, as long as it does not increase your abdominal pressure; high-impact aerobics, running, jogging, horseback riding, etc.
  • Apply sunblock and lotion to the treated area to prevent or minimize skin discoloration.
  • Do not travel (long flights or car trips).
  • Avoid saunas or hot baths (more than 100 degrees Fahrenheit) to prevent reopening of treated veins.
  • No heavy lifting (more than 20 lbs)
  • Be patient, the veins may take an extended time to fade away.
  • You may take ibuprofen 400mg (if not allergic) three times a day for any discomfort.
