Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure to treat uncomplicated spider veins. The treatment involves the injection of a solution, called Asclera®, into the affected veins. 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 and cellular debris 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.
Each appointment is approximately 30 minutes. For larger treatment areas, more time may be needed.
While the spiders veins will "disappear" upon injection, discoloration and bruising is very common for about 4 weeks.
The starting price is $325 and will vary depending on the size of the treatment area.
To ensure proper healing, we recommend no vigorous exercise for 48 hours. Medical compression garments (provided by patient) must be worn for 2 weeks. Additionally, we advise all patients to avoid sun exposure while healing.
BEFORE & AFTER
Sclerotherapy is an advanced treatment for spider veins that involves the injection of a solution into the vein causing it to swell, then collapse, and seal shut. The vein turns to scar tissue and fades within several weeks. Treatment is rapid and very comfortable. Patients with a large number of spider veins may require multiple treatments.
