Will I experience any side effects after treatment?

After the varicose veins are treated the foam causes an inflammatory response so that the veins will become quite hard and lumpy and bruised. That effect can carry on for a couple of weeks or in some cases a month or so afterwards.  That inflammatory process is all part of the treatment process. So phlebitis is a normal part of the treatment. A thrombosis which goes into the deep veins is a definite complication. It’s that deep vein thrombosis which is actually very rare and certainly less than 1%, we quote about 0.4% as that risk which is very low. That risk can be reduced even further by keeping mobile and active after the varicose vein treatment.
