Asclera®

Sclerotherapy For Leg Veins
Asclera® (polidocanol) Injection is a prescription medicine that is used in a procedure called Sclerotherapy to remove unwanted veins on the legs.

The procedure involves injecting a solution directly into the vein. The solution creates a reaction that progressively shrinks small to medium sized veins. Sclerotherapy treatments are practically painless and require no anesthetics.

The entire treatment takes about fifteen minutes to one hour for the administration of one sitting. Multiple treatment may be required depending on the amount of leg veins to be treated


Candidate for Sclerotherapy?

Not all types of veins respond well to sclerotherapy. During your consultation, our medical team will assess your individual condition and help you determine if this treatment will have the most optimal results for you or if another form of vein removal may be necessary.

What Can I Expect After Treatment?

Venous deficiencies can cause symptoms in some patients such as leg pain and cramping. This procedure can alleviate these symptoms as well as remove the vein from beneath the surface of the skin for cosmetic improvement. Sclerotherapy is a very safe procedure. It’s possible that you may experience some minor side effects, such as bruising or itching in the treated area

After sclerotherapy treatment, our medical team may recommend a daily walking regimen in order to maintain proper circulation and prevent blood clots from forming in the treated veins. Sclerotherapy does not typically interfere with normal activities, and most patients are able to resume daily activities immediately after treatment.
