Varicose veins cause discomfort to patients both in terms of aesthetic appearance and because of the pain felt. Patient compliance is very important in successful conclusion of varicose veins treatment in Turkey hospitals. In order for the patient to successfully complete the treatment process, there are a number of situations that the patient should pay attention to after treatment.


Non-surgical treatment of varicose veins is successfully applied in all types of varicose veins. The patient’s general health status and varicose veins are examined and appropriate treatment is decided. The majority of patients with varicose veins are suitable for non-surgical treatment of varicose veins. Among the non-surgical methods of varicose veins treatment, sclerotherapy or endovenous laser ablation technique are the most commonly preferred in Antalya and Istanbul Turkey.

But as much as the technique used, it is very important that the patient fully complies with the instructions given during the recovery period after treatment for the successful outcome of the patient’s operation in Turkey.


* Varicose veins worn on the patient after treatment should never be removed until 1 hour before bedtime in the evening the next day.

* After removing the varicose socks, a shower can be taken without a pouch or scrubbing. For about 1 month, abrasive processes such as bags should not be applied to the surface of the skin.

* Varicose socks should be worn morning and evening from 4 days to 1 Week from the day of sclerotherapy treatment.

* It is necessary to pay attention to the sclerotherapy foam treatment areas on the wrist parts and near the surface. Person should not rub shoes or cut socks, otherwise, a wound may occur. If the ankle is treated for 1 month boots, boots, etc. it should not be worn.

* Places traded should not be hit or hit.

* Attention should be paid to leg hygiene.

* Ice should be applied to the treated areas five minutes apart. If scratching or pain occurs, it can be relieved by applying ice.

* Bruising cream should not be used. Because heparin is in the creams, it can cause the closed vein to open, and in this case the process can become ineffective.

* In case of pain, you can use simple pain medications found at home.

* Bruises can also develop after sclerotherapy; yellow cantaron oil can be applied 8-10 times every day until the day of control to make the bruises pass faster.

* For the first 1 month, do not stand for a long time and avoid movements that will force the leg.
