Laser & Sclerotherapy Procedure Instructions


  • We must be notified if you become pregnant or are currently breast feeding.
  • Please arrive 15 minutes prior to each treatment. Do not use creams or lotions.
  • Each treatment requires your skin to be as close to its natural color as possible.
  • Bring shorts and your support stockings to each appointment.
  • Any missed appointments without a 24-hour notice will be charged $50.00 as this inconveniences other patients.


  • Leave your hose on for 24 hours. Then you may remove the bandages and take a shower.
  • Wear the support stocking for 1 week, daytime, after each treatment.
  • The veins will look worse before they look better.
  • There will be bruising, which is normal. The speed of healing is different in every individual.
  • Occasionally, there may be a firm knot that may feel tender. This is normal and will resolve with time.
  • Occasionally, there is a brownish discoloration following treatment. This is transient and will fade over time. It can take weeks to months to fade.
  • Occasionally, there will be tenderness in the area treated. Over-the-counter Ibuprofen will help with this discomfort.
  • You are not required to refrain from normal activity, including exercise.
