FDA-Cleared Asclera™ Offers Quick And Painless Treatment Of Spider Veins

NEW YORK, May 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- This season Dr. Bruce Katz, Director of

JUVA Skin and Laser Center in New York, is advising his patients who have spider veins to show off their skin thanks to a new injectable treatment called Asclera™. Anyone that suffers from spider veins would consider their existence on the body bothersome, either in terms of physical discomfort or appearance.  While there have been different treatment options in the past, often times they are irritating, time consuming and painful for patients.

Asclera™ is a new FDA approved injection sclerotherapy treatment available to doctors for use on spider veins, both large and small, up to 3mm in diameter.  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 1 -2 treatments.  

More than 80 million people in the United States suffer from spider veins or varicose veins. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) estimates that 50% of women over 21 in the United States have spider veins. And while women are more likely to develop spider veins than men, the incidence among both sexes increases with age.

"We have found that the arrival of Asclera™ has been a welcomed solution to a very common and bothersome problem for patients," said Dr. Bruce Katz.  "Studies have shown a greater success rate with Asclera™ than any other treatment currently available and at JUVA we have been very pleased with the ease of application and consistency of results."
