Are spider veins or varicose veins a problem for you? If they are, you may want to consider Asclera vein removal treatment. Enlarged veins that become uncomfortable and cause pain or throbbing should be treated, as they can lead to serious health issues. Asclera is an effective solution, but does Asclera vein removal treatment hurt?
Spider veins and varicose veins
Spider veins are very fine veins that lie close to the surface of the skin, and resemble tiny spider webs. They are normally red or blue in color.Varicose veins are larger veins that are often raised on the skin, and are typically purple or blue in color. They are usually found on the legs.
What is Asclera vein removal?
Asclera is a sclerosing agent that is used for vein removal as part of Sclerotherapy treatment. Asclera (polidocanol) is FDA approved for the treatment of spider and varicose veins up to 3mm in diameter.
Asclera is injected into the vein and works by injuring the cell lining. This causes the vein to seal shut, so that it is no longer able to carry blood. The treated vein will eventually be reabsorbed by the body over the following weeks.
A single treatment takes about 15 minutes, but it typically takes 3 treatments to achieve the best results.
Does Asclera vein removal treatment hurt?
Asclera is usually well tolerated, but patients can expect to experience some discomfort and slight burning as the drug is injected. The level of discomfort often varies depending on the area where the medication is injected.
Asclera vein removal treatment is available at Belle Vie Wellness & Medical Aesthetics, Cerritos, CA.
