Do you avoid showing off your legs because you have spider veins? Do they keep you from wearing that leg-baring skirt? Do they cause swelling or discomfort after you’ve been on your feet all day? Fortunately, there is a solution that can reduce the appearance and effects of spider veins so you can get back to feeling beautiful and vibrant again.
Spider veins are a network of fine blue or red lines just below the skin’s surface that fan out like a spiderweb on the legs or face. Asclera (polidocanol) is a non-surgical injection treatment that reduces or eliminates the appearance of spider veins and small (1-3mm) varicose veins, giving the skin a more youthful look.
Asclera is a detergent-like solution that, when injected, causes veins to stick together and close. With the vein no longer open, the body automatically redirects blood flow to other nearby healthy veins. Results are immediately noticeable, and, after a short period of time, the discolored vein will completely disappear. In addition, some patients may also experience relief from aches, swelling, and night time leg cramps associated with spider veins after Asclera injections.
Treatment is a series of injections with a very thin needle, which makes it virtually pain free, and recovery is relatively straightforward; most patients can return to their regular routines soon after treatment. For treatment of certain leg veins, a compression stocking may be used to speed and aid in healing.
The Rejuvenation MedSpa at The Female Pelvic Health Center is excited to offer Asclera as a non-surgical sclerotherapy treatment and beauty booster. Dr. Stephanie Molden and her female staff are dedicated to helping you look and feel your best by enhancing your natural beauty.
