Everyone except you, that is – because you have spider veins.
What Are Spider Veins?
Spider veins can be a major source of embarrassment, especially during the warm summer months. You may want to focus on barbequing with family members or enjoying the beach – but your spider veins may be making you self-conscious about exposing it all. Spider veins were so named due to the intricate web of red, blue, and purple veins that are visible on the skin’s surface. Unlike varicose veins – which are raised from the skin and have a more bumpy quality – spider veins are typically flat, smooth, and located on the legs.
These visible veins can develop for any number of reasons; the most common causes include pregnancy, standing for a long time, or genetic predisposition. Fortunately, there’s a way to banish unsightly spider veins – and it’s now available at Song Plastic Surgery in Irvine, California.
Asclera at Song Plastic Surgery
Sclerotherapy is the procedure used to diminish the look of spider veins. At Song Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kyle Song uses Asclera, a sclerosing agent – to treat spider veins. Asclera is an innovative treatment that can provide significant results for patients who suffer from unsightly spider veins.
Once Asclera is injected into the spider vein, it causes inflammation and irritation. This reaction prompts the vein to close, which eventually causes the vein to die (don’t worry, you won’t feel a thing!). Once the vein has gone through this process, the body eventually absorbs the dead vein – resulting in flawless new skin.
The average Asclera treatment takes approximately 15 to 45 minutes, and is done in-office. After treatment, clients should wear compression stockings or support hose continuously for two to three days, and then a few times a week.
Clients should expect to see significant and visible results after only two treatments, making Asclera one of the most effective sclerotherapy treatments on the market today.
