Asclera® Injection is a prescription medicine that is used in a procedure called sclerotherapy to remove unwanted veins on your legs. It is injected to treat two types of veins:
- Uncomplicated spider veins (very small varicose veins ≤ 1 mm in diameter)
- Uncomplicated small varicose veins (1 to 3 mm in diameter) known as reticular veins
There is no pre-treatment necessary. Prior to treatment, your concerns, medical history and the medications you take are evaluated by our nurse practitioner to ensure the safety of the treatment and if Asclera® is the right treatment for you.
About your treatment:
Expect to your treatment session, including consultation to last 30-60 minutes. Some patients may require multiple treatments depending on the severity of their spider and/or varicose veins. Individual treatments are separated by 1-2 weeks.
