If you have visible spider veins or small varicose veins on your legs, you may think that nothing works to improve their appearance. But we offer a highly effective treatment in the form of Asclera® (polidocanol) Injections, an FDA-approved treatment for removing unwanted veins in the legs. This vein injection therapy (also known as sclerotherapy) can have you feeling confident to wear skirts, shorts and bathing suits again!
Asclera® Injections are performed by Sabrina, our LPN Nurse Injector. This treatment works by causing the lining of treated blood vessels in the legs to swell. This blocks the blood flow and causes the affected veins to safely clot. From there, they are naturally reabsorbed by your body and no longer visible.
If you’d like to learn more about whether Asclera® Injections are right for you, please call 541-687-8900 or contact our office in Eugene today for more details. We offer free consultations for our cosmetic surgery and medical spa patients.
You can get all the facts and ask questions during your consultation with Sabrina prior to your Asclera® procedure. At your consultation, she’ll take a look at the veins you want to treat and talk with you about your cosmetic goals. We take a customized, personal approach to all treatments we offer so that you can get great results.
Many people with visible leg veins are excellent candidates for Asclera® Injections. This treatment is safe for all skin types and tones, and is best for people who are in good health overall. In our experience, Asclera® Injections are as effective as laser vein removal treatments, with many patients actually seeing better results from their injection treatments.
Asclera® treatments require no anesthesia and can be performed in just minutes. Treatments are performed in 15 minute increments, with total treatment time depending on how many veins you need to treat. We may recommend several appointments so that we can assess how well the treated veins have responded and perform treatment on any additional visible veins that remain. Sabrina is skilled in administering the injections safely and comfortably. At most, you should only have minor discomfort during the injection itself.
Most of our patients will see significant improvement in the appearance of treated spider veins and varicose veins after just one treatment session. Veins may appear slightly more prominent at first before gradually vanishing as your body reabsorbs the treated vein. To maximize the effects of treatment, we recommend avoiding strenuous exercise, sun exposure, hot baths and airplane travel for several days, and you may benefit from wearing support hose or compression stockings for a short period after treatment.
For maximum improvement, we may recommend an additional series of treatments spaced about a week or two apart. At each treatment session, we’ll review your progress and focus on treatment of remaining visible veins.
