Apply oil or cream to your legs for 24 hours before your treatment (our bandaging following treatment will not stick).
Pre & Post Treatment Guidelines
Shave or wax your legs 24 hours before treatment (it will increase skin sensitivity).
Suntan for 24 hours before or 48 hours after your treatment (always avoid sunburns).
Take excessively hot baths or use saunas, hot tubs or whirlpools for 48 hours after your treatment.
Wear constrictive clothing such as a girdle (they will impair your circulation).
Wear compression stockings immediately before your treatments.
Take a flight for 2 weeks prior to or 2 weeks after a varicose vein treatment.
Expect to be able to return to work and drive yourself to and from appointments (unless medically incapable due to other diagnosed conditions).
Wear loose clothing for after the treatment to be able to accommodate any bandages required.
Inform Dr. Jacobsohn of any blood thinning medication you are taking prior to treatment that is prescribed by a physician or non-prescribed.
Continue taking any prescribed medications by a physician, including blood thinners after clearly informing Dr. Jacobsohn.
Expect possible bruising or tiny red spots, this is normal. Bruises should be completely gone within 2-4 weeks depending on your personal normal level of bruising.
Wear compression stockings as often as possible after treatment, when recommended for daily wear.
Wear low heeled shoes the day of treatment, especially if standing for long periods afterwards. High heels impair the venous return from your feet.
