Dr. Navarro shares how long it will take varicose veins to disappear once a woman has undergone treatment.
For functional recovery, you can go back to work the same day or the next day. You will be left with some black and blue and a slight soreness maybe for a few days up to a week, but you can go to the gym and return to your normal life.
Even with the mini-phlebectomy is the same type of a procedure. All the bulges and branches will be taken at the same time. Even with the sclerotherapy, with injections for the branches, then we will do it in the next couple of weeks. With the spider veins, we will start treating usually the day after the procedure.
So, calculate that between three and four weeks you can get rid of all the black and blues secondary from the endovenous laser ablation and mini-phlebectomy, and all the spider veins you will need to treat them to couple of two or three sessions, in two or three sessions.
