Must bandages be used after procedure?

Sclerotherapy . 9 answers . 2 years ago

I have had Sclerotherapy done on my spider veins in my legs every year from 2004-2009. This was in AZ. After the procedure I would wear compression pantyhose (my own,support pantyhose) for 24 hrs. I have always had a great result.Is this acceptable?

I usually just use stockings as well. Some use bandages though.

Yes, you do not need bandages for spider vein sclero as long as you have the compression stockings.

We do not use bandages in our center. Compression hose are much more comfortable and produce excellent results.

We use our hose a little differently than you are used to. We place our patients into the hose at the end of the treatment and they either wear 24hr/7day and they are done OR 72 hrs/3days then 7-10 days after during the day.

I prefer a long period of compression after sclerotherapy treatments than 24 hrs.

Each treating physician will have different post-procedure instructions.

You are giving the proof that it is quite acceptable and probably recommendable.

By the fact that you have had great results, certainly this is acceptable. I recommend compression post sclerotherapy for 48 hours.

Hello,
In our office, we put on bandages to soak up the minimal bleeding from the injection sites. We put the stocking over the bandages. The patient can take the bandages off the next day.

Our recommendation is for sclerotherapy patients to wear compression stockings for 2 weeks on the treated leg. But if your results have been great, stick with what works for you as long as your doctor is on the same page. Bandages are rarely necessary.
