Laser Vein Treatment FAQs
What is laser sclerotherapy?

What can I expect after sclerotherapy in Lake Charles, LA?
After receiving sclerotherapy in Lake Charles, LA, your veins will be raised, red and irritated. You will be required to refrain from any activities that will cause the veins to dilate for 48 hours and you will be asked to wear compression hose if the veins are on your legs.
