LEGS: OK TO BE ‘VEIN’
Anyone that suffers from spider veins would consider their existence on the body bothersome, either in terms of physical discomfort or appearance. Asclera™ is used to treat uncomplicated spider veins up to 3mm in size. Once injected, it acts by damaging the cell lining of blood vessel, causing them to close and eventually disappear. The treatment boasts no downtime and most veins are corrected in as little as 1-2 treatments.
