Are you tired of wearing tight compression socks or jeans year-round to hide your visible spider or varicose veins? Don’t be self-conscious about your legs; show them off with confidence this year with Asclera!
What is Asclera?
Asclera or polidocanol is an injection that is used to remove unwanted spider veins or small varicose veins that are up to 3mm. These veins are typically caused by impaired blood flow, sun exposure, changing hormones, or can be a result of injury. The procedure to remove these veins is a procedure also recognized by the name of sclerotherapy. This prescription medication works within your blood vessels to diminish the appearance of prominent veins.
How does Asclera work?
During the procedure, Asclera is injected into the patient’s veins to damage the lining of the body’s blood vessels. Platelets and debris will then cling to the blood vessels to cause clotting and over time, is replaced with tissue. As determined by Dr. Salzman, injections are administered surrounding the areas of concern over the course of a 15 to 45-minute procedure.
Asclera is an FDA-approved treatment to permanently remove spider veins and small varicose veins, permanently! Following an Asclera treatment, it is important to keep blood flowing by walking and maintain compression for up to a week. You should expect 2-3 days of downtime directly following the procedure. Some side effects are possible for patients with allergies, but this can be discussed in your consultation with Dr. Salzman.
