If you are the victim of problematic veins, you know how aggravating they can be. Whether you are plagued by those tiny, squiggly veins known as spider veins or you have small varicose veins cropping up on the surface of your skin, they are a blemish. You want to hide them because they make you feel so uncomfortable. Fortunately, you have a non-surgical alternative that can help you to get rid of those troublesome veins. It’s called Asclera®, and all you need to do is have a simple injection.
How Does Asclera® Work?
Asclera® is used when you have sclerotherapy to remove your problematic veins. During sclerotherapy, our specialist will pinpoint the veins that are causing issues for you. An injection of Asclera® will be prepared and it will be injected into your vein. This solution acts as an irritant. Eventually, it will force the vein to clot. Over time, it is going to fade away.
It may sound frightening to think that your vein will clot, but the blood in your body will take another route, safely traveling on. Your treated vein won’t give you any troubles. You may need multiple injections in the treated area to have the best results.
What Happens After Your Treatment?
After you have received your injections, you are going to want to do everything you can to promote healthy circulation in your legs. Expect to wear compression stockings for the next few days. If you only had spider veins, you will probably wear compression stockings around the clock for three days. For varicose veins, expect a week. You’ll continue to wear your compression stockings during the day for the next three weeks.
Walking is also important. You’ll be asked to walk for 20 minutes on the day that you were treated with Asclera®. Continue to do so regularly to strengthen your legs and your veins. Talk to our doctor to find out what else you can do afterwards to achieve the best results.
