Sclerotherapy Spider Veins

Take your legs out of hiding


Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure used to treat “spider veins.” A solution Asclera® is injected directly into a vein, causing the lining of the blood vessel to swell and stick together. Over time, the vessel turns into scar tissue that fades from view.

Sclerotherapy works well for most patients. It is estimated that between 50 and 80% of injected veins may be eliminated with each session.

In general, spider veins respond to treatment in 3 to 6 weeks, and few treatments might be required.

If the veins respond to the treatment, usually they will not reappear. However, new veins may appear over time. If needed, you may return for injections.

The sclerotherapy procedure takes about 30 to 45 minutes.

Surgical compressive stockings are required to be worn during daytime for up to 7 days. They must be purchase before the procedure or from our office.

There is a maximum of 5 Asclera® vials that can be used during one session, if that limit is reached another appointment needs to be scheduled.

Spider and varicose veins are common issues that can have a significant impact on the look of your skin. If you suffer from small and uncomplicated spider or varicose veins, Our team at Allergy & Skin Spa may recommend treatment with Asclera®. These Injections are a minimally invasive treatment that can be performed in a doctor’s office, sclerotherapy is very appealing to many patients. But sclerotherapy does not work for all types of veins, when you have your consultation, Dr. Kia will examine your areas of concern and will curate a treatment plan that works best for you.

How does Asclera® work?

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.

SCLEROTHERAPY Before and After*

All before and after images are unretouched photos of actual patients treated with Asclera. Individual results may vary depending on varicose vein severity, disease progression, skin tone, and number of treatments. Results at 26 Weeks After Last Treatment.


How many sclerotherapy treatments are required?
It varies from individual to individual but typically 2-4 treatments are required for the best results. In patients with a few veins, 1-2 sessions will suffice. More treatments are required where veins are more numerous and extensive.
Is sclerotherapy painful?
Just like any other injection, the most you may feel is a slight prick when the needle is administered. The procedure does not typically require anesthesia, though a topical numbing agent can be applied at the patient’s request.
How long does sclerotherapy treatment take?
The procedure takes approximately 15-60 minutes, depending on how many veins need to be treated. The best part about sclerotherapy is that there is no recovery time afterward. You can get back to your regular routine immediately after the treatment. However, intense exercise should be avoided for a few days.
What sort of after-care instructions need to be followed after sclerotherapy?
Patients are recommended to wear compression garments following the sclerotherapy procedure. This helps minimize any bruising and speeds up the recovery process by maximizing the treatment results.
Do insurance plans cover sclerotherapy?
Since sclerotherapy is mainly performed for cosmetic reasons, insurance companies do not offer coverage for it. However, our rates are very affordable and accessible to many of our clients, making our sclerotherapy treatment worth every dollar.
