Pre and Post Care Guidelines

*** AVOID Vitamin E, Aspirin And Ibuprofen For ONE Week Prior To Treatment***

Before your Appointment

  • Inform your physician if you are taking birth control pills or estrogen.
  • Consult with your physician before discontinuing the use of any medication.
  • Do not drink any alcoholic beverages or smoke two (2) days prior and 2 days after your treatment since this may impair the heeling process.
  • The day of your appointment, do NOT shave your legs to avoid discomfort. Shower and wash your legs thoroughly with an antibacterial soap. Do not apply any cream or lotion to your legs.
  • Wear loose-fitting clothes the day of your treatment.
  • Eat a light meal or snack 1 ½ hours before your appointment.

After your Appointment

  • Immediately following your procedure, you will be fitted for support stockings. Following your procedure, you will be required to walk approximately thirty (30) minutes. Be sure you have loose fitting slacks and comfortable walking shoes with you.
  • Wear the support stockings as instructed. After healing, you may use them for long trips or when your legs ache.
  • If you are traveling over thirty (30) minutes to our office, have someone else drive you, so you can move your feet around after the treatment.
  • You will be able to maintain normal activities. Walk at least one (1) hour every day. However, avoid standing for long periods of time.
  • Take showers for two (2) weeks following your procedure, do not take baths. Cool your legs with cold water after each shower.
  • Avoid strenuous physical activities such as high impact aerobics, running, abdominal crunches or leg lifts on gym equipment for one (1) week while wearing the support stockings.
  • Wash your medical grade compression stocking in warm water and mild detergent (such as ALL, Whisk or Ivory Snow).

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19 View Update Virtual Consultation


Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

Updated March 17th, 2020

After serious consideration and in line with the recommendations of our State and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we are closing the practice until April 13th, 2020.

Your health and well-being is our primary concern and we want to do our part to make sure that you are protected.

Effective immediately the following will occur:

  • All procedures and in-person consultations will be suspended until March 30th.
  • The office will be closed but we will see our urgent follow-ups.
  • We are instituting Virtual Consultations for all potential patients.
  • No patient will ever have any financial recourse for rescheduling their procedures.

We are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and will always place your health and well-being as our top priority.

We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. These include:

  • Staff have been fully informed and trained to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • All staff, vendors and ancillary personnel are being asked to refrain from coming to this office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Every patient is also being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms.
  • We are asking our patients about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing continues to be the most important mode of prevention. Although it is a part of what we constantly do, now we are doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • We have instituted a “no handshakes no hug” policy for now.
  • We have asked all vendors that any unnecessary meetings are canceled until further notice.
  • Any exit and entrance from our office are followed by a protocol of changing shoes, scrubs and sanitization.
  • As we are an accredited medical facility, we are constantly sanitizing all surfaces. We have now vamped that up and our routine, multiple times a day, wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities. We have assigned a person that does so on a constant basis.

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this Country even better than it currently is. We are monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
