Minimally invasive vein therapy is a great way to eliminate varicose veins without the need for large incisions and significant periods of downtime. However, as with any other vein treatment option, there are certain steps you need to take in order to maintain the results following your procedure:
Moisturize Your Skin
Healthy skin is hydrated skin, which means you need to drink plenty of water and use moisturizer on a regular basis. If you have sensitive skin, consider using a hypoallergenic moisturizer to reduce your chances of irritation.
It is important to wear sunscreen regardless of how long you plan to be outside during the day, as the sun’s UV rays can cause significant damage to your skin. Additionally, sun exposure increases the risk of further varicose vein and spider vein development. As a good rule of thumb, try to stick with a sunscreen product with an SPF of at least 15 that protects against both UVA and UVB radiation.
Exercise is essential when it comes to the health of your veins, both before and after minimally invasive varicose vein treatment. This is because exercise helps keep your leg muscles strong, ultimately helping the muscles surrounding your veins more efficiently pump blood back up to your heart. Additionally, routine exercise will help you maintain your weight, which can significantly reduce the amount of pressure on your veins.
