A Guide To Sclero X: Which Compression Stockings Are The Right Fit For Your Patient

Studies confirm that approximately 60% of the population suffers from spider veins or telangiectasias. Not only can spider veins be a source of aesthetic distress, but they can also have significant physical side effects, including leg aches, pains, and cramps.

Sclerotherapy is considered the gold-standard treatment for telangiectasias and spider vein removal, helping achieve younger, clearer, healthier-looking skin on the legs.

Wearing compression stockings is essential for patients recovering from Sclerotherapy and other varicose vein treatments. The application of compression after each treatment pushes the venous blood out of the leg faster, accelerates blood circulation in the legs, and potentially minimises the chance of an unintended secondary clot formation in any of the non-treated vessels.

With a superior fit, excellent wearing comfort, and proven efficacy, Venetix’s exclusive Sclero X range of compression stockings by Sigvaris has been purposefully designed to provide medical-grade leg compression post-venous treatments, including sclerotherapy.

For more than 150 years, Sigvaris has been the global pioneer in developing innovative and high-quality compression garments. The high-quality, Swiss-made range offers three different stocking types: chaps, thigh, and knee. Any type is suitable for your patients, provided the affected area is covered.

Like pantyhose, only chaps are designed without a body or a panty portion and are ideal for patients who need compression on the full length of their leg. Available for one or both legs, chaps are commonly used on patients who have difficulty wearing pantyhose, or skin that is sensitive to silicone bands or skin glue.

Thigh-high compression stockings aim to reduce pooling of blood in the legs and help minimise the risk of light-headedness.

Compression stockings that rise to just-below-the-knee help minimise lower leg swelling due to fluid build-up.
