FAQ – Center For Vein Wellness



Is the varicose vein treatment procedure painful?

Most patients report feeling little, if any, pain during the Endovenous procedure. Your physician should give you a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area.

Will I be asleep for my varicose vein treatment procedure?

No. This minimally invasive procedure can be done with a local anesthesia.

How quickly can I resume normal activity?

Patients treated with Endovenous procedure may resume normal activities more quickly than patients who undergo surgical vein stripping. The average patient typically resumes normal activities within a few days.

How soon after treatment will my symptoms improve?

Most patients report a noticeable improvement in their symptoms within one to two weeks following the procedure.

Is there any scarring, bruising, or swelling after the procedure?

Most patients report limited to no scarring, bruising or swelling following the procedure.

What can happen if varicose veins are left untreated?

Without treatment, varicose veins generally tend to get worse. Those who do not get them treated are more likely to develop:

Will my insurance cover the treatment?

Many insurances do not cover the cost of compression stockings.

What are my limitations following the procedure?

Patients are discharged with a leg wrapping or a compression stocking. Sponge bathing is recommended until your follow-up visit. You may shower once the dressing has been removed. Patients must refrain from using the hot-tub or sauna for at least two weeks after the procedure.

Patients must avoid strenuous exercises such as lifting weights, running and aerobics for at least two weeks after the procedure.

Can I drive after the procedure?

Patients who are given valium or xanax will not be able to drive home after the procedure. Please arrange for transportation prior to the procedure as patients will not be discharged until their transportation has arrived in those circumstances.

How is the Endovenous procedure different from vein stripping?

During vein stripping, incisions are made in the groin and calf, and an instrument is and a surgical instrument is threaded through the diseased vein to pull the vein out of the leg. With endovenous procedures, only one small incision is made at the insertion site and the vein is then treated and left in place. This minimally invasive approach reduces the likelihood of pain and bruising associated with the vein stripping surgery.
