Over 80 million Americans suffer from symptoms related to unsightly, painful varicose and spider veins. Asclera® is a sclerosing injection for the treatment of spider veins and varicose veins of the legs. Sclerotherapy can be performed safely and effectively, often with no return visit required.
What is Asclera sclerotherapy?
Asclera (polidocanol) injections are used for sclerotherapy to treat two types of veins – uncomplicated spider veins (very small varicose veins less than 1mm in diameter) and uncomplicated small varicose veins know as reticular veins (1mm to 3mm in diameter).
In this simple procedure, veins are injected with a sclerosing solution, which causes them to close and thereby fade from view. The procedure may also remedy the bothersome symptoms associated with spider veins, including aching, burning, swelling and night cramps. The treatment only eliminates veins that are no longer used, so there are no effects on blood circulation.
How quickly will I see results?
Results occur immediately after treatment. Once the swelling subsides, after a few days, the results are even better.
Is there downtime associated with a sclerotherapy treatment?
Compression stockings should be worn and high-impact activities, hot baths or saunas, and long plane rides should be avoided for several days after the procedure. Otherwise, there is no downtime and patients can resume normal activity immediately after the treatment.
Are there other alternatives to sclerotherapy?
The Excel V laser offers an alternative to sclerotherapy treatment. The Excel V is used to treat a range of vascular conditions, including spider veins and purple leg veins.
