Can A Bruise Be Dangerous?

We all get bruises when we bump into something or fall down. Often, we may not remember exactly where a bruise came from. If you suffer from bulging or discolored varicose veins, you may get bruises more easily in that area. That’s because bruising, sometimes called vein bruising, is part of the body’s healing process after injury or trauma. Individuals can also get bruises after both minor medical treatments and major surgery. Bruises should improve steadily and gradually fade. If they don’t, you may need to see your doctor. 

Minor Bruises

Bruises you may get after minimally-invasive Cincinnati vein treatment are generally very minor. Because of advancements in vein procedures, issues like varicose veins, spider veins, and vascular disease can all be treated through quick, efficient medical techniques in our offices. As bruises fade, your legs look and feel better than ever, as you’ll notice in our Before & After photo gallery. Follow your aftercare instructions from our clinic, which may include resting your bruised leg, propping it above heart level, applying an ice pack (for only 10 minutes at a time) and wearing compression socks. Keep in mind that non-strenuous walking is also encouraged to re-establish proper circulation.
