Spider veins, though annoying and unattractive, are easily treated by Dr. Schwartz in the comfort of our beautiful Leawood clinic (located just north of Town Center Plaza and Park Place). Many of our physically active patients are sometimes hesitant to schedule a vein treatment as they don’t want to interrupt their various exercise and training programs.
The good news is that sclerotherapy (the gold standard for spider vein treatment), requires only a one day reprieve from exercise. We ask our sclerotherapy patients not to exercise, work out or do anything that may significantly elevate their heart rate for just 24-36 hours after each treatment session. Any kind of “pounding” activity (running, high impact aerobics, etc.) would be best limited for 2-3 days, however beyond this one’s normal activities are fine.
