Vein Removal: What to Expect

Published by DR. Bradley Ashpole

If you have never experienced vein removal in Northbrook, you may be a little hesitant about what to expect during the procedure. One way to help conquer your fears is by understanding how the process is going to work and what you can expect along the way. If you still have further questions after reading this blog post, please don’t hesitate to contact our team at Ashpole Plastic Surgery.

On the Day of the Procedure

On the day of your procedure, you can go about your day just as you normally would. Try to dress in loose-fitting clothing because you will wear stockings and bandages when the procedure is over. If you plan on taking medication to help get you through the procedure, it is important that you have someone with you to safely drive you home. You can also utilize laughing gas if you do not want to take heavier medication.

The Procedure

Before the procedure begins, Dr. Ashpole will clean and sterilize the area of the leg that is being treated. An anesthetic will be injected to target the vein and it will be treated once it is numb. As the vein is treated, you may feel a slight burning sensation. After the procedure is over, we will bandage the area and provide a compression stocking that should be worn for around 48 hours.

Seeking professional vein removal in Northbrook is an easy way to help you feel more confident in your own skin, especially as summer approaches. Schedule an appointment with us today!
