Every physician has his/her routine in treating patients after sclerotherapy including immediate wraps and subsequent compression garments. Some are based on the literature and other recommendations are based on personal experience. I wrap the entire leg and ankle foot otherwise you will get swellling below the area that is wrapped which concerns patients, thinking that there is a problem like a DVT. I have patients remove the ace wrap the following morning and wear compression garments for a period of 3 months. The length of the compression hose should include the area that is injected. If you do sclerotherapy in the thigh, you should wear thigh hig and if it is only in the leg and ankle, knee high. I also recommend topical creams daily to prevent hyperpigmentation - VenoQuin and VenoLucent.
