Patient Instructions for Post-Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy

Now that your treatment is complete, our physicians at Scottsdale Medical Imaging recommend that you sleep in your compression hose the first night, then wear the hose during waking hours for the next 10 days.

You may experience discomfort such as aching or throbbing for the first day or two after your initial treatment. Walking should help reduce this sensation. If discomfort continues, Advil, Nuprin, or ibuprofen may be taken with food. The treated areas may appear to turn dark in color and/or be slightly tender. This could be residual blood in the closed vessels, resulting in a hard lumpy feeling under the skin. This is normal and will be evaluated at the time of your follow-up office visit. You may see some bruising. Do not be alarmed, again this is normal.



It is important to remember that it has often taken years for these veins to develop, and they will not disappear overnight. Please be patient and allow time for healing to occur.

Always bring your compression hose to your Vein Clinic appointments. Bring shorts to wear during your treatment.

Call the SMIL Vein Clinic at (480) 425-4150 with any treatment or recovery questions.

It seems though they aren’t all on theme page. I always request a Cd of the XRays and the X-ray tech gave nepme a green card and said give it to the receptionist, she’ll write you name on it and hold it al the counter so she remembers she is waiting for it.....I tell thee ratio it’s this, she takes a sticky note , writes my last name on it and places it on her desk which is floating in papers.....the card you take out there is bright green and about 5x8...if she’d kept that she could hand it it worked out....but why doesn’t the left hand know what the right hand is doing. And which one of them intend the X-Ray tech was the manager of the

The staff was so very kind and helpful! The X-ray room was rather small though. It was hard to get in with my knee scooter. But the tech was so kind to help me navigate and move things. Everyone was great!
