Compression stockings after a venous procedure almost always improve healing and act as an analgesic by the compression. Your Phlebologist, vein specialist, should advise you best, as the nature of the procedure may help to provide this answer for you.
It is also almost always beneficial for venous heath even without a procedure, so many Phlebologists may recommend converting from a thigh higher degree of compression hose to a "maintenance" knee high type. There are many brands, models, and colors available these days. The key is proper fitting, supportive guidance and professional instruction regarding application and care. I do not feel this is a "retail" item, in a breach in any of the above may result in loss of benefit and not infrequently can be harmful if not monitored.
