Asclera® is a non-surgical procedure used to remove unwanted varicose or spider veins on the legs. Spider veins or varicose veins are not medically harmful, but can be unsightly and uncomfortable. Many people experience pain, discomfort, and embarrassment associated with veins on their legs.
Asclera® is an injection that disrupts the interior walls of the vein, causing it to constrict and close. When a vein closes, it prevents blood from flowing through it and eliminates the swelling, bulging, discomfort, and discoloration of the vein. Asclera® is only intended for small veins.
What to Expect
Asclera® involves an injection through a needle into the vein. You may experience mild discomfort during the injections. Each Asclera® treatment lasts 30 to 60 minutes and most patients require several treatments to achieve maximum results. Side effects are minimal and can include itchiness and redness near the injection site. After treatment, you will need to compress the treated area for several days, but can return to normal activities almost immediately. You should avoid strenuous exercise, sun exposure, hot tubs, or plane flights for several days after treatment.
