When you are preparing for vein treatment, you may feel as though there is a lot of information to take in. As a result, it is easy to overlook some of the pre-treatment recommendations, designed to help you achieve the beautiful results you are seeking. At OBI BioAesthetic Institute, we strive to assist our patients at each step of the process. In light of this, here are a few mistakes to avoid when preparing for vein treatment in Jacksonville, FL.
Taking the Wrong Medications
Medicine such as Aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and some herbal supplements may increase bleeding in the body, which can make for a dangerous situation, but one that can be avoided if discussed in advance. Patients preparing for vein treatment should confirm that their daily medications will not interfere with or negatively impact the procedure. If a contraindication is discovered, you will need to speak with your primary physician to determine the best plan for remaining healthy before and after your vein treatment.
The negative impact of smoking is well known in the health world. However, smoking is especially detrimental for individuals undergoing any form of cosmetic procedure, as it can inhibit and slow down the healing process. If you have not yet looked into methods for quitting your smoking habit, now is an excellent time to start. As a non-smoker, you will experience a much more pleasant and hassle-free vein treatment. The additional health benefits of not smoking can also lead to improved wellness in the future.
Not Disclosing Oral Contraceptives
Some oral contraceptives can increase the risk of blood clots. Therefore, it is essential for patients to be transparent about all current oral contraceptives, so that any potential risks can be discussed beforehand.
