Enjoy the freedom to show your legs! Asclera (polidocanol) Injection is a prescription medicine that is used in a procedure called sclerotherapy to remove unwanted veins on your legs. It is administered by a healthcare provider to treat two types of veins:
- Uncomplicated spider veins (small varicose veins larger than 1 mm in diameter)
- Uncomplicated small varicose veins, one to three milimeters in diameter. These are known as reticular veins.
About the treatment
The procedure takes 15 to 30 minutes and one to six treatments may be needed with the average being 1 to 4. It is not recommended to take certain medications prior to the treatment so talk to the doctor during your consultation about what you are taking. After the treatment you should avoid hot baths, saunas, hot compresses and direct exposure of the area to sunlight.
