Increase The Effectiveness Of Varicose Vein Treatments: The Benefits Of Compression Stockings

The effectiveness of venous treatments, such as sclerotherapy and radiofrequency ablation, is amplified through post-procedural care of the treated area; specifically, the use of compression stockings on legs treated for varicose veins.

Compression stockings are elastic garments specifically designed to compress the leg through pressure. This, in turn, keeps treated vessels shut and prevents blood from getting trapped in them. Wearing compression stockings post vein treatment will help to quickly push blood out of the leg, as well as accelerate blood circulation and potentially minimise the chance of clot formation in non-treated vessels; this is because the constant movement of the blood makes it harder for it to pool in the vein. Compression stockings also help to avoid aching and swelling of the legs and feet.

Ensuring your patients follow-up their venous treatments by wearing high-quality compression stockings is essential to guaranteeing their veins recover properly. Venetix’s Sclero X compression stockings are specifically designed for medical grade compression post Sclerotherapy treatments.

With a Ccl. 2 (23-32 mmHg) compression level, these opaque stockings are the best way to ensure your patient’s veins remain shut. Additionally, to ensure ease of use, Sclero X stockings are made with two-way stretch fabric. This means they are extremely effortless to take on and off as patients may easily pull the fabric either horizontally or vertically along their leg, further maximising comfort. Sclero X stockings are also highly durable and easy to care for so that recovering patients will not have to exert extra energy trying to maintain the stockings.

Unlike many compression stockings, Sclero X stockings are set at an attractive price point and are available in a variety of lengths, sizes and colours. Depending on their specific needs and preferences, your patients can choose from knee or thigh high stockings, from six different sizes (small to large plus) and from both black and beige colours.

Based on a strong desire to revolutionise therapeutic compression wear for the treatment and management of venous and lymphatic disorders, Venetix chose to partner with global leader, Sigvaris Group whom offer both scientific expertise and extensive knowledge in compressions solutions to the healthcare professionals.
