Asclera Injection

Asclera (polidocanol) injection is a perception medicine that is used in sclerotherapy to remove unwanted veins. It is used to treat two types of veins:

1. Uncomplicated spider veins (very small varicose veins smaller than 1 mm in diameter)

2. Uncomplicated small varicose veins, that are also known as recticular veins (1-3 mm in diameter)

You should not receive Asclera if you:

  • Have a known clotting disorder

  • Have a known allergy to polidocanol

  • Are pregnant or nursing

How Asclera Works:

Asclera injection is an injection of a sterile chemical into the vein. Asclera is an FDA-approved treatment that can be injected into a vein. It works by damaging the inner wall of the vein, and eventually, the vein collapses on itself. Over time, the damaged vein is replaced with fibrous connective tissue and prevents blood flow through the vessel. Most patients will require multiple treatments to ensure the best results.
