Asclera - Vein treatment

Asclera is an FDA-approved medication injected to treat spider and small varicose veins. It works by damaging the cells lining inside of blood vessels.

How long is each Asclera® session?

A typical sclerotherapy session lasts 15 to 45 minutes. 


What should I expect after being treated with Asclera®?

Maintain graduated compression

  • 2-3 days after treatment of spider veins

  • 5-7 days after treatment of reticular veins

  • For extensive varicosities, longer compression treatment is recommended

  • Post-treatment compression is necessary to reduce the risk of deep vein thrombosis.

Encourage walking

  • 15-20 minutes immediately after treatment

  • Daily for a few days

What should I avoid right after treatment?

For two to three days following the treatment, please avoid:

  • Heavy exercise

  • Sunbathing

  • Long plane flights

  • Hot bath or sauna

You should not be treated with Asclera® if you:

  • Have a known allergy to polidocanol

  • Have an acute vein or blood clotting (thromboembolic) disease

  • Are pregnant or nursing
