After sclero: There is little that needs to be done after sclero. Most of what is recommended to patients after sclerotherapy is based on tradition and not science. Compression probably helps with comfort, swelling, and bruising but it has never been shown to make a real difference in terms of effectiveness or safety. You can be as active as is comfortable. Sun exposure, in moderation, is ok but don't burn.
