Sclerotherapy Treatment Q and A

What is Asclera®?

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.

is a prescription medicine that is used to treat two types of veins in your legs.

  • Uncomplicated spider veins (very small varicose veins ≤ 1 mm in diameter)
  • Uncomplicated small varicose veins (1 to 3 mm in diameter) known as reticular veins

How often do I need treatment to see results?

The number and frequency of treatments depends on the size of the vessels and their location. Call En Vogue Medspa today to book your consultation appointment to figure out how many treatments you’d need.

How does Sclerotherapy Treatment work?

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 new tissue.

How long does each Sclerotherapy session last?

A typical session lasts 15 to 45 minutes. Generally, 1 to 3 injections may be necessary to treat a given spider or reticular vein. Repeat treatment sessions may be necessary.

What should I expect after my Sclerotherapy treatment?

You’ll need to wear compression stockings day and night for 2 to 3 days, then as needed for the following 2 to 3 weeks. Compression stockings are designed to apply pressure to your lower legs, helping to maintain blood flow, and reduce discomfort and swelling. Compression helps your legs heal and is necessary to reduce the risk of deep vein thrombosis.

You should also walk 15 to 20 minutes immediately after your treatment and daily for a few days thereafter.
