Complements Lose spider veins and gain confidence with Asclera®


By Eileen Maney, Eileen Maney, PA-C, Mount Nittany Physician Group Reconstructive & Cosmetic Surgery

If you are unhappy with the appearance of spider or reticular veins, Asclera may be non-surgical solutions for you. Spider veins (the small red and blue veins) and reticular veins (the flat, green veins) are caused by a number of factors like genetics, age, gender, pregnancy, body weight and prolonged sitting and standing.

Asclera, also known as sclerotherapy, is an FDA-approved medicine that targets these veins through simple injections. The medicine works by damaging the lining of the treated vein so that over time the vein is replaced with healthy tissue.

The treatment is minimally invasive and typically takes between 15 to 45 minutes. After the procedure, patients will need to wear compression socks for a short period of time and will be encouraged to walk. Results can been seen as early as two weeks following the first procedure and will continue to improve over the following three months.

So, how do you get started? First, you will have a consultation with me. Certified in Asclera injection, I will evaluate your veins and provide a detailed treatment plan based upon your individual needs. At your consultation, you will learn about the procedure and what to expect following your treatment. I will also provide the cost of treatment, which will be tailored to fit each patient’s individual treatment plan. A cosmetic consultation costs patient’s $75, but this payment will go towards your Asclera treatment cost.
