FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What does it treat?

Asclera is administered in-office to treat two types of veins in the lower extremities:

  • 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

What are the results I can expect?

The treated veins collapse and absorb for younger looking legs.

Who is a good candidate?

Asclera (polidocanol) is not recommended for patients with known allergies (anaphylaxis) to polidocanol or patients with acute vein and blood clotting diseases. Otherwise, individuals with small spider and varicose veins are good candidates for treatment.

How does it work?

Once Asclera is injected into the vein, the treated veins collapse and become less visible over a few weeks. Eventually, the body naturally resorbs the treated veins.

What is the procedure time? 

Each session typically lasts 15 to 45 minutes, depending on treatment area.

Does it hurt?

This treatment may sting a little, but it is very tolerable.

Recovery time & side effects?

In a clinical study, the most common side effect was temporary bruising (hematoma) at the injection site.
