How does Sclerotherapy work for spider vein removal?This procedure entails an injection of superficial leg veins with a sclerosant. Fibrosis gradually develops and obliterates the lumen of the vessel. The needle used is small, and there is little pain involved. Several veins can be treated per visit. After treatment, there may be some transient bruising and/or discoloration. Compression stockings are recommended for a 72-hour period. Approximately 25% of the veins injected will require additional treatments; these can be done at four-week intervals. Very tiny and/or resistant veins as well as veins around the ankles are usually amenable to YAG laser surgery.
Asclera is a new, innovative approach to sclerotherapy. Asclera uses polidocanol to reduce and eliminate unsightly spider veins *. The polidocanol treatment shows much higher patient satisfaction rate than other sclerosing agents, and is a swift, simple treatment that usually takes between 15 and 45 minutes. Dr. Christine Brown will help Dallas-area men and women determine if Asclera is the right treatment for their veins.
