Here at NY Medical Skin Solutions, we like to use both cutting edge technology along with tried and tested treatments that have lasted and worked forever. Used since the 1930’s, Sclerotherapy remains the treatment of choice for eliminating spider veins and varicose veins. The procedure involves injecting a specially formulated sclerosing solution directly into the vein causing it to collapse and fade from view. Our preferred method of sclerotherapy is through a product called Asclera.
Asclera® is used for the treatment of uncomplicated spider and uncomplicated reticular veins Asclera® (polidocanol) Injection is a prescription medicine that is used in a procedure called sclerotherapy and is administered by a healthcare provider to treat two types of veins:
- Uncomplicated spider veins (very small varicose veins less than or equal to 1mm in diameter)
- Uncomplicated small varicose veins (1 to 3mm in diameter) known as reticular veins
The number of veins treated in a single session depends on the size and location of the veins. Studies show that as many as 50% to 80% of veins treated may be eliminated with each Sclerotherapy session.
