Sclerotherapy / Asclera Spider Vein Treatment
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 is a quick and simple procedure to remove unwanted spider veins from legs. Spider veins are tiny red or blue veins that are highly visible and superficial, unlike varicose veins. They have many causes, include genetic and hormonal factors. At Cosmetic Laser MD we offer sclerotherapy with Asclera (polidocanol), as the gold standard treatment for spider veins.
Asclera has benefits over traditional hypertonic saline in that it can be used on not just spider veins (which are up to 1 mm) but also on larger reticular veins up to 3 mm in thickness! Asclera is the first drug approved by the FDA for the treatment of spider veins in over 40 years!
What is Asclera sclerotherapy?
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.
