Preparation Before Treatment

Patients are asked not to apply moisturiser to their legs on the day of the treatment. The moisturiser affects the adhesiveness of any tapes, which may be used to hold dressings in place following the treatment. Moisturiser does not affect the treatment otherwise.

Please avoid using fake tan for at least 2 weeks prior to treatment and if possible, and do not expose your legs to the sun for at least one week before treatment. 

You may prefer to wear loose trousers to your appointment as they will help hide the compression stocking. Wear comfortable shoes so you can go for a walk after the procedure. 

Patients are also asked to stop taking Iron, Vit E, high dose Fish Oil and Chinese herbal supplements 2 weeks prior to treatment.
