Sclerotherapy is a quick and simple prccedure to remove unwanted spider veins from legs. Spider veins are tiny red or blue veins that are highly visible and superficial, unlike varicose veins. They have many causes, include genetic and hormonal factors. At Celebrity Laser Spa, we offer sclerotherapy with Asclera (polidocanol), as the gold standard treatment for spider veins.
Each spider vein in the treatment area is injected with Asclera using a tiny needle. The injection is relatively painless and well-tolerated. During a half hour procedure, a large area can be covered. There may be mild bruising or temporary discoloration afterwards. Bandages are then wrapped on the legs to help compress the sites of injection.
Asclera has benefits over traditional hypertonic saline in that it can be used on not just spider veins (which are up to 1 mm) but also on larger reticular veins up to 3 mm in thickness! Asclera is the first drug approved by the FDA for the treatment of spider veins in over 40 years!
After each treatment, many veins will disappear, but some may require additional sessions. Injection can be repeated after one month. Some new spider veins may also appear with time, so you may want an occasional touch-up. Since there are many causes of spider veins, we also recommend asking your doctor to see if you have a treatable medical cause of the problem.

1) Who performs the sclerotherapy at Celebrtiy Laser Spa?
All sclerotherapy treatments are performed by the Physician Assistant.
2) How much downtime is there after sclerotherapy?
There may be a little itching or irritation after treatment for a few days. Compression with bandages must be mainted for 2-3 days for small veings and 5 to 7 days for the larger ones. Longer compression may be need for extensive varicosities.
3) Why should I choose Asclera over other sclerotherapy treatments?
Asclera is more effective than other FDA-approved sclerotherapy treatments by a 20% margin (see FDA study). It’s also safer than hypertonic saline in the rare case of extravasation (the material being inadvertantly injected outside the vein.
4) Is treatment expensive?
We have 2 options for treatment – 15 and 30 minutes. The longer time is a better value, but the shorter time is available for those with a very limited amount of spider veins.
