Asclera® spider vein treatment is a proven, FDA-approved method for addressing spider veins and varicose veins. The treatment is specifically used to treat patients who wish to reduce or remove the appearance of spider veins from their legs. All Asclera® treatments at MadEmEl Medical Aesthetics are performed by our certified nurse practitioners.
This is a simple, injectable treatment with very little risk of complications or side effects. Unlike previous vein removal treatments using the ingredient hypertonic saline, Asclera® treatments pose almost no risk of post-treatment scarring in the treatment area. The results are typically outstanding and long-lasting.
How Asclera® Spider Vein Treatment Works
Asclera® spider vein treatment is a prescription, injectable form of sclerotherapy. The treatment is administered directly into the area that the patient wants addressed. Once the injection has been made, Asclera® is able to safely alter the blood vessel lining. In the weeks following treatment, the treated veins will collapse further from the surface layer of the skin and become less visible until finally being naturally reabsorbed by the body.
Asclera® Spider Vein Treatment FAQs
How can I choose between Asclera® spider vein treatment and cosmetic laser treatments to address my spider veins?
People who experience spider veins on their face may require a laser treatment, as Asclera® is not FDA-approved to treat this area. For many patients, pairing Asclera® spider vein treatment with a cosmetic laser treatment can often provide the best and longest-lasting aesthetic results. Typically, Asclera® treatments are performed first to address the main vessels and then either an M22™ IPL or Q-Switched Laser can help by clearing up any remaining redness and veins for Asclera® to reach.
Will I experience any pain or discomfort during the Asclera® spider vein treatment?
No, the treatment is virtually pain-free. Patients may feel a small pinch at the time of injection and/or a very mild burning sensation in the cases of larger veins, but this only lasts a few seconds. Asclera® does not require any downtime for recovery and is not associated with any lingering post-treatment effects.
