How do compression stockings treat varicose veins?
Compression stockings are worn around the legs to support varicose veins and improve circulation. They apply gentle, consistent pressure to the covered areas to promote healthier blood flow to and from the heart. These stockings can typically apply more pressure towards the feet and ankles for greater global blood circulation.
When is the best time to wear compression stockings?
Our specialists typically recommend wearing compression stockings during the day. Both standing and sitting upright are more likely to influence inadequate circulation. For greater relief of the symptoms of varicose veins, we may recommend wearing the stockings as you sleep with proper elevation of your legs to improve blood flow.
How long will I need to wear compression stockings?
This will ultimately depend on the severity of your case. During your initial consultation, one of our specialists will thoroughly evaluate the area and help you determine if compression stockings may be ideal for you. From there, we can customize a treatment plan to help you see the best possible results.
If you are struggling with varicose veins and are looking for a non-invasive treatment option, compression stockings may be right for you. Contact us today to schedule your consultation!
