Sclerotherapy in NYC
Show off your legs with confidence and rid yourself of embarrassing visible veins with Asclera. Asclera is a non-surgical vein injection therapy (sclerotherapy) that Dr. Karlinsky performs in New York to treat both spider and uncomplicated reticula veins.
How is Asclera used to treat spider veins?
Asclera is a vein injection therapy, or sclerotherapy, that is also highly effective in the cosmetic treatment for vein conditions including spider veins and uncomplicated reticula veins. Once injected, Asclera causes the lining of blood vessels to swell and block the flow of blood. The vessels then clot and the body slowly disintegrates the vein.
Is Asclera right for me?
Spider veins appear as tiny red or blue veins close to the skin’s surface, typically on the legs. Dr. Karlinsky expertly uses minimally invasive Asclera injections in her Manhattan, Westchester and Brooklyn centers to eliminate the appearance of both spider veins in men and women.
When can I schedule my Asclera treatment?
Dr. Karlinsky will conduct a brief consultation with you to determine if Asclera is right for you. Most patients are able to have their first treatment during this appointment.
How soon will I see results from Asclera?
Most patients enjoy a remarkable improvement after just one treatment, though it is often necessary to schedule multiple treatments for optimal results.
How should I prepare for spider vein treatment?
Beyond your consultation, no specific preparation is needed.
How does Dr. Karlinsky use Asclera for vein treatment?
Dr. Karlinsky will carefully address each visible vein with injections of Asclera. It is very common for patients to need several injection treatments over a series of appointments. This allows time for the medication to thrombose the veins and for Dr. Karlinsky to evaluate progress and retreat any stubborn areas.
How long does Asclera treatment take?
Each vein treatment session takes just about 15-30 minutes.
How long does recovery take?
Your veins will become less and less visible as the medication takes effect and healing continues. It is recommended that you avoid strenuous exercise, sun exposure, hot tubs, and plane flights for a few days after treatment. Depending on the degree of your vein treatment, Dr. Karlinsky may advise you to wear support hose or compression stockings for a short period of time.
How soon can I start exercising after an Asclera treatment?
You can comfortably resume your exercise routine in just 2-3 days.
What are the Asclera risks?
Asclera is a very safe procedure that eliminates spider veins and uncomplicated reticula veins. Rare side effects include skin irritation or itching, bruising, and allergic reactions.
Patients experiencing any unusual or concerning symptoms are advised to call Dr. Karlinsky’s cell phone immediately.
How long do Asclera results last?
Spider veins and uncomplicated reticula veins treated with Asclera are gone for good. It is possible for enlarged veins to appear in other areas however, and Dr. Karlinsky can easily treat them with additional injections.
How much does Asclera cost?
Asclera is an affordable, safe, and quick type of therapy that reveals beautifully smooth legs. Dr. Karlinsky will review the costs with you during your consultation.
