Compression Stockings

What are compression stockings?

Compression stockings gently squeeze your legs to promote healthy blood flow. When you have a vein condition, conservative therapy often includes the use of compression stockings. The team at Venaflux Vein and Vascular Solutions offers a variety of compression stockings from MediUSA and Ames Walker, including:

  • Ankle and knee-high compression socks
  • Knee-high and thigh-high compression stockings
  • Compression pantyhose
  • Maternity pantyhose
  • Pneumatic compression devices (must undergo evaluation by provider)

They sell compression socks and devices for men and women of all ages and sizes. They customize the compression level to your specific needs.

How do compression stockings work?

Compression socks, stockings, and wraps apply gentle pressure to your leg, which helps move blood back to your heart. This helps prevent many common problems like leg swelling and blood clots. They can also slow the progression of varicose and spider veins that often leads to chronic venous insufficiency (vein reflux disease).

Compression may assist with other conservative treatments: elevating your legs so your feet are above the level of your heart, taking anti-inflammatories, venoactive medications, or exercise program as often required by insurance companies prior to approval of vein treatments.

What is Dermaka skin care?

Dermaka is an all-natural, plant based cream enriched with vitamins that can be used on all types of skin disorders secondary to invasive procedures including pre and post endovenous ablation, microphlebectomy, and sclerotherapy. Dermaka minimizes redness, bruising, and staining after anesthetic or surgical procedures.Patients use Dermaka for a variety of conditions including bruising, rashes, dry skin, muscle and joint pain.

When should I use compression socks and Dermaka skin care?

You may need to wear compression socks and Dermaka skin care after you’ve undergone a procedure. The team at Venaflux Vein and Vascular Solutions may also recommend compression garments to manage the symptoms of a condition like leg pain, leg swelling, varicose veins, or restless legs syndrome.

Additionally, compression socks may help prevent vein problems in people who are at high risk, especially if you’re going to travel on an airplane or long car ride or spend a lot of time standing or sitting. 

Factors that increase your risk of vein issues include having a family history of varicose veins or a personal history of pregnancy, blood clots, or deep vein thrombosis. Being overweight or over age 60 can also increase your risk.
