What is Asclera?

Asclera (Polidocanol) Injection is an FDA approved prescription medication used for the treatment of spider and reticular veins in the lower extremities. Asclera is injected into affected veins, causing them to seal shut and be reabsorbed into the body. The affected veins then fade from view over time. 


Why Should I ask for Asclera?

Like Varithena, Asclera is Sclerotherapy, a minimally invasive procedure administered by your healthcare provider to treat uncomplicated spider veins and uncomplicated reticular veins. The Asclera difference is quality and consistency. Nearly 90% of clinical study patients report being satisfied or very satisfied with their Asclera treatment after 26 weeks. 


How does Asclera work?

Asclera is a sclerosing agent that is injected into the vein. It works by damaging the endothelium, the inside lining 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.
