Day of treatment
Ever since losing weight & working out more, the varicose veins on my left calf/knee have become more prominent and painful. I finally decided to pay the money & get serious treatment for them (compression socks alone helped with the pain, but not with how they looked). I just had it done this morning & while it hurt a bit while she did it (especially when she was injecting near/on the bone) I feel fine now & am moving around with no problems! I can take the bandages & compression socks off on Wednesday night.. I'll update with pictures then.

Day 2 - thought I would wake up with some pain from not moving my legs much throughout the night & thankfully I was fine! Not being able to shower was the roughest part. Needless to say, I will be VERY thankful come Wednesday night when I can take the compression thigh-highs & bandages off!!!

Took the bandages & compression socks last night & WOW!!!!! Most of the bruising is on my right leg (behind the knee - where it hurt the most!).. the veins on the left calf/knee are almost totally gone! She had warned that the veins might be hard & if they don't go down on their own, she will take care of it at our follow up in 4 weeks. I am so excited to be able to rock some shorts this summer without being self conscious of these gnarly veins. I've been working my a$$ off to get my body in shape & then to have to keep my legs covered up because of veins was a huge bummer. Very much worth the money & having to wear these compression socks for a month!!!
Looking and feeling MUCH better!!

As the photos show, there's still some bruising, but it is MUCH better than before!! I am very, VERY happy with my results. My husband is next up to get his done!
