Asclera for Spider & Reticular Veins
Asclera® (polidocanol) Injection is a prescription medicine that is also used for sclerotherapy. Dr. Lev will evaluate your condition and decide if Asclera is right for you.
Asclera® is recommended for patients with:
- 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
How Does Asclera® Work?
Asclera® is a sclerosing agent that is injected into the vein. It works by damaging the endothelium, the cells lining the inside of blood vessels. This causes blood platelets to attach to the lining of the vessels; eventually, cellular debris and platelets cause the blood vessel to clot. Over time, the clotted vein will be replaced with tissue.
