Is it ok to start wearing a compression sock again many weeks after the radiofrequency procedure?

Wearing compression may minimize discomfort and swelling and in turn, help in your recovery.

Question: I wore the compression sock on the treated leg for the first two weeks. I stopped wearing it for the next three weeks but the healing process seems to be taking longer than I’d like. Is there any issue with me wearing the compression sock again? Will it promote healing?

Answer: There is no problem wearing compression stockings for comfort and support after the vein closure procedure. It will help minimize discomfort and swelling, and in turn, help in your recovery. Some patients prefer to wear them for a month or two after intervention.
