Description

Details

Asclera® is a prescription medicine 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

Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the injection of a solution into the affected veins.

How Does Asclera Work?

Asclera is a sclerosing agent that is injected into the vein. It works by damaging the endothelium, the cells lining inside of blood vessels. This causes blood platelets to attach to the lining of the vessels; eventually, the cellular debris and platelets cause the blood vessel to clot. Over time, the clotted vein will be replaced with tissue.

We sell Asclera® by the cc. Most patients require approximately 2 cc for a full treatment. Please call us if you have questions.

FAQs

What are varicose veins?

Varicose veins are large blue, dark purple veins. They protrude from the skin and many times they have a cord-like appearance and may twist or bulge. Varicose veins are found most frequently on the legs.

What are spider veins?

Spider veins are very small and very fine red or blue veins. They are closer to the surface of the skin than varicose veins. They can look like a thin red line, tree branches or spider webs. Spider veins can be found on the legs and face and may cover a small or large area.

What are reticular veins?

Reticular veins can also be known as feeder veins. They are the blue and green veins beneath the surface of the skin.

Reticular veins enlarge because of increased pressure in the vein. They can be caused by heredity. You may have reticular veins alone but you may also have spider veins at the same time.

What causes spider and reticular veins?

Spider and reticular veins can be caused by many factors.

  • Heredity. Having a family member with prominent veins may increase the risk of you developing them. Approximately half of the people who get varicose veins have a family history of them.
  • Age. The normal wear and tear of aging may cause valves in the veins to weaken and not work as well.
  • Gender. Women are two to three times more likely to develop varicose veins than men. Up to half of American women have varicose veins. Changes in hormones due to puberty, pregnancy, menopause, or taking birth control pills may increase a woman's risk of developing varicose veins.
  • Pregnancy. During pregnancy, the growth of the fetus increases the pressure on the veins in the legs. Varicose veins that occur during pregnancy usually improve within 3 to 12 months following delivery.
  • Overweight and obesity. Having extra weight on the body can put additional pressure on the veins.
  • Prolonged standing or sitting. This is particularly true with legs bent or crossed. When standing or sitting with legs bent or crossed, the veins have to work harder to pump the blood up to the heart.

Other possible causes for varicose veins are race, posture, occupation, hormones such as estrogen and progesterone, primary valvular incompetence, and incompetent perforating veins.

How long is each Asclera session?

A typical sclerotherapy session lasts 15 to 45 minutes. One injection is usually administered per inch with multiple injections per session. Following treatment compression stockings or support hose should be worn continuously for 2-3 days and for 2-3 weeks during the day time.

Are there any possible side effects to Asclera treatments?

Yes, they may include:
  • Severe allergic reactions have been reported following polidocanol use, including anaphylactic reactions, some of them fatal. Severe reactions are most frequent with use of larger volumes (> 3 mL). The dose of polidocanol should therefore be minimized. A doctor should be prepared to treat anaphylaxis appropriately.
  • In rare cases, formation of small "burns" or ulcers form, usually due to leakage of Asclera® into the skin. They heal in time, but may leave a scar.
  • Inadvertent perivascular injection of Asclera® can cause pain. If pain is severe, a local anesthetic (without adrenaline) may be injected.
You should tell your doctor about all the medicines you are taking, including:
  • Prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins and herbal products
You should not be treated with Asclera® if you:
  • Have a known allergy to polidocanol
  • Have an acute vein or blood clotting (thromboembolic) disease
  • Are pregnant or nursing
