In brief: Right away

After sclerotherapy, you are generally asked to do a lot of walking immediately after a treatment session and following.
So, there's no need to change your walking schedule after sclerotherapy treatment....Walking is great for you!

As dr. Cuff said, you can start walking immediately.
In fact, many doctors will have you walk before you even get in your car to go home after a treatment session. Walking definitely makes you legs feel better as you heal . For more vigorous exercise, i recommend letting your body be your guide. If you can do something comfortably, it is ok to do it.

In brief: Immediately

Normal paced walking should be fine immediately after sclerotherapy.
I usually recommend waiting 48 hours before engaging in aerobic exercise or running
