Asclera Medication Information

Spider veins and reticular veins are two of the most common types of varicose veins. These can often be treated with a drug called Asclera™ (polidocanol). The medicine is injected into the affected veins, where it causes the inner lining of the veins to become damaged. Scar tissue eventually replaces the vein, which fades away.
 
When considering treatment with Asclera, an informed healthcare provider who is qualified to administer this medication is preferred. If this drug is injected improperly, or if too much is accidentally given, it could leak into surrounding tissue, causing potentially serious damage. In addition, allergic reactions -- although rare -- are possible, and the healthcare provider giving the injection must be prepared for this possibility.
