Vein Treatment (Sclerotherapy)
Dr Jenny performs sclerotherapy with an effective injectable product called Asclera to treat small, unslightly spider veins and varicose veins on the legs.
How does sclerotherapy work?
Asclera works by carefully increasing the formation of blood clots and scar tissue inside the veins treated. Some veins disappear immediately upon injection, while others need to be reinjected.
Are results permanent?
Varicose veins can reformulate or new spider veins can develop as we age or due to trauma to the skin. Ascerla does not treat varicose veins that are larger than 3 millimeters (about one-eight of an inch) in diameter.
What to expect after vein treatment
For 2 to 3 days after your treatment: Avoid exposure to direct sunlight, tanning beds, hot tubs or saunas. Do not use a heating pad or ice on area treated without direction from Dr. Jenny. It is also suggested to avoid heavy or strenuous exercise, or sitting for long periods of time, such as long-distance car or plane rides.
Am I a candidate for sclerotherapy?
Please tell us about any medical conditions or allergies during your initial consultation. Women who are pregnant or nursing cannot be treated with Asclera. Anyone with a blood clot disorder such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or Buerger’s disease should also refrain from treatment.
