Over the years, doctors have experimented with a variety of injectable solutions with varying results. Asclera, which was approved by the FDA in 2010, has proven to be one of the most effective solutions for sclerotherapy. In fact, nearly 90% of our New York patients report that they are happy with the results provided by Asclera!
Am I A Candidate?
Asclera is an excellent choice for many of our NYC patients. It can be used to treat the following types of visible veins:
- Uncomplicated spider veins (smaller than 1mm in diameter)
- Uncomplicated small varicose veins (1 – 3mm in diameter)
It is approved for use in patients who are at least 18 years old. Anyone who has a known allergy to polidocanol or acute thromboembolic disease should not undergo treatment with Asclera. In this case, another solution or vein treatment may be recommended. Sclerotherapy should also be avoided if you are pregnant or nursing.
