I had a sclerotherapy treatment done 2 weeks ago. Do I need to wait to have a Velashape procedure done on my thighs and, if so, how long?

I had sclerotherapy done on my left leg to treat a couple of spider veins about 2 weeks ago. There is still some minor bruising but it's almost gone. I would like to do a Velashape procedure on the back of my thighs but I'm not sure if I need to wait for my veins to heal and if I should wait then for how long??

Because of the suction action on the velashape -particularly the Vela III, I would advise waiting a month after your last sclerotherapy.

I would wait another 2 weeks or at least until the bruising is completely gone
