The spider vein treatment involves injections with Asclera, a solution specifically used to remove the smaller veins on the legs. This injection treatment usually requires 2-4 sessions to be successful, but may take up to 6 sessions for a particular vein or section of veins. Each session is scheduled 4-6 weeks apart.
One session is the equivalent to one vial of the 0.5% solution. With the one vial, the doctor will treat as many veins as possible. Larger veins may require more of the solution, therefore not as many veins may be treated in a single session. Your doctor may also recommend the 1% solution for larger reticular veins. The cost for upgrade is $25 per vial.
