Many men and women suffer from spider and/or varicose veins. Not only can these cosmetic issues be painful and irritating, but they can be unsightly and cause embarrassment and self-consciousness in those who struggle with these frustrating blemishes. If you suffer from either of these conditions, then it goes without saying just how frustrating and socially debilitating they can be for you. And while you can try using topical ointments to relieve irritation and continue to wear pants and other clothing to conceal spider and varicose veins, this can be burdensome and keep you from enjoying your life to the fullest.
Instead of simply masking the issue, why not correct it completely? Asclera® can do just that. At Synergy Face + Body, we are proud to offer Asclera® to help men and women of all ages get rid of their spider veins and varicose veins so that they can regain a sense of comfort and confidence with the look and feel of their skin.
What Are Spider Veins and Varicose Veins?
Many people have the misconception that spider and varicose veins are the same things. While both issues are found on the legs, they are different in both their cause and appearance. Spider veins are usually caused when the valves that are found inside the leg veins malfunction. Because of this malfunction, the progress of the blood (which is normally carried freely to the heart) is slowed, causing it to collect (or pool) in the veins. This pooling is what causes the blue, purple, and/or red blemishes that often branch out to look like a web. Varicose veins, on the other hand, are veins that are near the skin’s surface that have become either twisted or enlarged. This causes the veins to bulge through the skin and become noticeable and sometimes painful.
For many people, spider and varicose veins do not cause any physical harm. Some men and women experience itchiness and discomfort in the specific area of the vein, though for most people it is the appearance of the spider or varicose vein that frustrates them. And it is this cosmetic correction that Asclera® can help to correct.
How Does Asclera® Work?
Asclera® is a safe and effective FDA-approved injectable treatment used for ridding the skin of unsightly spider and/or varicose veins. This non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment can offer you long-lasting results that can help you feel better about your legs and yourself. For this procedure, the sclerosing solution is injected directly into the vein. This solution damages the lining of the troublesome blood vessels. Over time, blood platelets and other cells will become caught within the damaged blood vessel, creating a blood clot to form. This clot will then be replaced with tissue, which removes the unsightly vein from showing through the skin.
What Are the Benefits of Asclera®?
After the prescribed number of Asclera® treatments (this will be decided by your skincare specialists during your consultation), you can look forward to having clearer and smoother skin without the disruption of spider or varicose veins. With the vein issue resolved, you will no longer need to worry about any discomfort or irritation in the area. However, in addition to relieving any pain or discomfort in your skin, you can enjoy clearer and blemish-free skin to help improve your confidence.
You know that short dress or those shorts you’ve always loved but were always too embarrassed to actually wear? Well, you can feel free to wear it out in public without the worry of what others might say about the appearance of your skin. That goes for bathing suits and bikinis—you can enjoy time at the beach or pool with family and friends. And don’t forget about those intimate times with your partner. You can now look forward to having nothing to hide or feel embarrassed about!
