Sclerotherapy (spider veins)
Asclera® (polidocanol) Injection is a prescription medicine that is used in a procedure called sclerotherapy to treat two types of veins:
- 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
Asclera® is a sclerosing agent that is injected into the vein. It works by damaging the endothelium, the cells lining the inside of blood vessels. Typically 2-3 treatments are required for the full treatment of spider veins.
