Sclerotherapy Laymphatic
Has anyone here on this done on your face. I have LM mine on my right cheek. They did find a Dr. Do mine. Do they put you out or our you awake for this. Is this on over night thing or are you out the same day. How long does this take. I have research it but it's not tell what I like to know.

Would like to hear experience from Adult who have had this done. I'm 47

I'm not in the USA, so any recommendations for doctors etc won't help you, but I have had 2 lots of sclerotherapy on my right cheek. They gave me a general anesthetic, because they do a very detailed scan at the same time to locate areas to inject. The first time they kept me in overnight, but that was because I was still classed as a child then, the second time I was out the same day. It is VERY swolen afterwards, and generally there is some blistering, but both die down after about a week. Both times the results have been VERY good!
Good luck, let me know if you have more questions :)

Thanks. I do have a couple of questions. Were you able to eat without any pain right after and can you go back to work. What is the down time?. I work as a janitorial where I do lifting and outdoors what do they ask you don't do after treatment. Again thanks for replying.
