Yes. This is a big beauty breakthrough! And Asclera sounds like another wonderful and minimally invasive cosmetic procedure, because it is an injectable. Quick, painless, and you're good to go with new, attractive unblemished legs.
Asclerais the first sclerosant to be approved here in the United States in over 60 years. In Europe, the vein injectable has enjoyed a fine reputation now for a number of years.
Here's how it works, ladies: Once injected, Asclera™ acts by damaging the cell lining of blood vessels, causing them to close and eventually be replaced by other types of tissue. Asclera™ is safe and effective when used as directed.
Asclera will zap tiny, uncomplicated spider veins to larger, uncomplicated varicose veins up to 3 mm in diameter. Merz Aesthetics is the company unveiling the new Asclera treatment to women here.
We are excited that something that can be done with a needle to get quick and great results.
"Spider and reticular veins are a common, often embarrassing condition that can be treated safely and effectively," says Robert A. Weiss, M.D., director of the Maryland Laser, Skin, and Vein Institute and Associate Professor of Dermatology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, MD. "Asclera™ is a minimally-invasive option for patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their legs."
We have not been able to find a price tag yet, for one treatment session of Asclera. That information isn't avaliable at the moment. But we can say, this is big beauty news!
