You want to undergo venous treatment to deal with your varicose and/or spider veins. You are ready to say good riddance to those eyesores. Not only do these veins negatively affect the appearance, but they can also make your legs ache all of the time. If left untreated, they will only get worse. You made the right decision to do something about your vein problems. In order to have the best results, you need to make sure that you follow all of our doctor’s recommendations during the length of your treatment. That may mean the use of vein compression following your procedure to provide pressure to your veins.
Why is Vein Compression Necessary?
When varicose veins appeared in your legs, you had valves in your veins that were faulty. They should have closed whenever your blood traveled through your vein to make it through to your heart. A faulty valve allowed the blood to flow backward in your vein and begin to pool. That created the bulging vein.
Once you have had venous treatment, you want to do everything possible to promote healthy circulation in your legs. The main goal is to make sure the blood flows properly through your veins. You want to accelerate the process of having treated veins absorbed by the body. You also want to avoid the development of more varicose veins. You may be advised to wear compression stockings for a set amount of time after your treatment. When your legs are strong, your veins will be stronger as well. When you follow our doctor’s recommendations, you are likely to see the best results after treatment.
