Asclera® (polidocanol) was featured on ABC’s The View last week as an effective treatment for spider veins. Asclera® (polidocanol) Injection is a prescription medicine that is used in a procedure called sclerotherapy. It is an FDA approved solution to treat spider veins and uncomplicated reticular veins.
Although Asclera® (polidocanol) has only recently made headlines on television, including being featured on The Doctors and Dr. Oz, it became FDA approved in 2010. Prior to FDA recognition as Asclera® , the generic form of the solution called polidocanol has been used for decades, especially in Europe. As a result, at La Jolla Vein Care, we have performed thousands of spider vein treatments using this medication. It is preferred over other solutions such as hypertonic saline and sodium tetradecyl sulfate because it is less painful and we find better results.
