Endovenous ablation, sclerotherapy and velashape lll.

I had a Endovenous ablation and sclerotherapy (serious bruising) on both legs. My last procedure fell on a Monday and I want to begin velashape lll on Saturday. I have a lot of bruising and my legs appear swollen as if it's water retention (only after doing a double shift) no pain. What would you recommend?

I recommend that you get a venous doppler to exclude DVT.

I would allow your legs to heal from the endovenous ablation before beginning another leg procedure.  The velashape itself may cause bruising of your legs. Once the swelling and bruising subside then you can proceed.

I would defer the treatment with Vellashape until after the swelling has resolved. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
