What to Expect
The laser tip catheter is then activated inside the affected vein to shrink it down and quickly seal it. This stops the blood flow. Blood is then diverted into other veins to increase circulation and relieve existing symptoms.
The laser tip catheter is then removed, a small dressing is applied, and a compression bandage will be placed over the compression stocking.
Sometimes you may feel some slight tightness in the legs, but this will disappear in a few short days. Your compression stocking will then be applied, and a compression bandage will be placed over the compression stocking. This is to be worn for 48 hours. After this, the compression stocking will be worn during waking hours for the next six weeks.
