Is there downtime?
Patients return to work and normal activity the day of treatment or the day after treatment for all procedures done at Mountcastle Vein Centers. Our procedures are all outpatient, office based, ambulatory procedures. There are no exercise restrictions post-procedure. We do recommend keeping the AP (varicose vein) punctures dry for a week and avoiding sunbathing after SVT and MST for two weeks.
Does it hurt?
Treatments at Mountcastle Vein Centers are relatively pain free and are done as outpatient procedures with local anesthesia when small injections are needed. Our procedures are all non-surgical and are performed in our clinics.
