Asclera Injections Before and After Photos

There are over 30 million Americans suffering from spider veins. Fortunately, you don’t need to feel conscious about showing off your legs anymore with Asclera. This spider vein removing treatment is FDA-approved for being used in sclerotherapy. Your healthcare provider will administer the procedure in-office for treating the following types of veins in the legs:

  1. Small varicose veins or uncomplicated spider veins that are less than 1mm in diameter
  2. Reticular veins or uncomplicated spider veins that are 1 – 3mm in diameter

Pre-treatment Consultation

Pre-operative consultation is an integral component of the spider vein treatment procedure. Strong foundations are created by good consultation. Patients will understand procedural steps better during the pre-operative consultation. You can also get an in-depth insight in the treatment provider’s background.

The healthcare provider will try and establish whether you are an ideal candidate for the injections during the pre-operative procedure. Few treatment providers also show before and after pictures of Asclera injection therapy. These images are shown to help new patients develop reasonable expectations.

In addition, new patients may also request for testimonials of former patients for understanding the procedure better.

Procedure Plan

The vein specialist will examine your spider veins during the pre-treatment consultation. They will assess your personal aesthetic requirements and goals. An individual treatment plan will be developed by the treatment provider based on the evaluation. Generally, treatment plans include only sclerotherapy. However, a combination of procedures may be recommended in severe cases.

Your vein treatment provider will assess all your medical records to see if you have a history of any vascular concerns. The treatment provider will recommend a suitable plan based on your medical and personal information obtained during the initial consultation.

Asclera Injectable Administration

Asclera injection sclerotherapy for the removal of spider veins can be performed using three techniques:

  • Liquid sclerotherapy
  • Foam sclerotherapy
  • Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy

Other advanced procedures may be recommended in combination with Asclera injections. This includes endovenous laser treatment and ambulatory phlebectomy. Liquid sclerotherapy may be recommended if the spider veins are tiny.

The vein specialist will inject a medication solution in the problematic veins directly using tiny needles. It is usually not a problem to find and treat the veins since they are easily visible on the skin.

Foal sclerotherapy is particularly effective in patients that have varicose veins and spider veins. A specialized foamy solution is injected directly into the veins. Larger sized veins can also be treated and removed using the procedure. Ultrasound guided sclerotherapy is recommended for veins that are embedded underneath the surface of the skin.


Healing of bruises may be expedited by the treatment provider by using a special cream or gel. You may be asked to apply an ice pack for the first 1 to 2 days.

I couldn’t be any happier with my results!! The entire process was such an amazing & positive experience and one I will never forget. I was treated like a person rather than a number. Everyone, from the staff at Dr. Baumholtz’s office to the staff at the surgical center were so comforting and reassuring. Renee and Katherine at the office have been more than great, and the surgical center staff were so professional and caring. All my questions & concerns were addressed and I felt like part of a family. Thank you to all who were involved on my journey!!
