Do I have to wear my compression hosiery during exercise and how many hours after exercise am I allowed to shower. On the other hand, is it helpful to cold-compress my post-injection bruising sites? Thanks!
How many weeks post-sclerotherapy is it advisable to do medium to high intensity exercise?

Compression for only 48 hours.
Following sclerotherapy I recommend compression for only 48 hours, resumption of all exercise immediately and return to normal activities. The only restrictions I recommend are no hot tubs or hot baths for 5 days post sclerotherapy to avoid vasodilation and avoid sun exposure for at least 2 weeks post treatment or until any bruising subsides. For bruising I recommend ice for the first 72 hours then heat. Support hose do not have to be worn during exercise and showers can be done immediately after exercising. I have been doing sclerotherapy for over 20 years and patients do very well with this protocol.
