Are your legs ready for summer?

If you have spider veins that are making you hide in your pants, free your legs with ASCLERA.

What are spider veins?
  • A group of small, dilated veins that appear close to the surface of the skin.
  • Look like a spider web or tree branches, usually red or blue in color.
  • Can develop anywhere, but are most common on the legs and face.
  • Are smaller than varicose veins, but are sometimes located together.
Some potential causes of spider veins include:
  • Aging
  • Heredity (family history of the condition)
  • A history of blood clots
  • Taking oral birth control pills
  • Hormonal changes during puberty or menopause
  • Hormonal replacement therapy
  • Pregnancy
  • Standing or sitting for long periods of time
  • Wearing a girdle or clothing that is too tight
  • Obesity
  • Constipation
  • Sun exposure

Spider veins, although unsightly, are usually harmless, though they can sometimes cause aching, burning or pain, especially when you’ve been standing for long periods. Don’t walk – run and schedule your appointment today!

Sclerotherapy with ASCLERA doesn’t require anesthesia. In this procedure, our provider injects the spider vein(s) with a solution that scars and closes those veins, causing the blood to reroute through healthier veins. Side effects can include swelling, itching and skin color changes in the treated area. In a few weeks, treated spider veins fade. Although the same vein may need to be injected more than once, sclerotherapy is usually effective.
