This is a cornerstone of the treatment. Wearing compression stockings is crucial post venous treatments. Not everyone will be suitable for the above treatments and you might only need conservative management including compression stockings. Phlebologists or your health professional will give you advice on the importance of using the stockings.
Compression stockings are available in 4 classes. Class 1 is the lowest pressure and 4 the highest. Based on your medical condition and other health conditions your health professional will recommend the appropriate stockings.
Compression stockings can help to treat venous insufficiency but are typically combined with other vein care methods. Stockings can decrease some symptoms of vein conditions, such as fatigue, aching, and swollen legs, but they cannot cure the condition of venous insufficiency.

Compression stockings by their very nature move blood away.
They also help to ease swelling in the legs, feet, and ankles and can prevent it to a certain extent until patients have treatment for troublesome and annoying varicose veins and spider veins. They can even prevent you from feeling dizzy or lightheaded when you stand up.
How long to wear Compression Stocking completely depends upon your condition. For mild cases, you may just have to wear them for a few hours a day to maintain circulation. Alternatively, for more complex or severe vein issues, you may need to wear it all day.
Avoid wearing compression socks at night during sleep unless prescribed by your doctor.
