Yes, Asclera® is permanent. Because the treated veins are damaged and naturally eliminated, they will be gone for good.
Depending on the extent of correction needed, multiple injections may be needed. Most patients experience one to three Asclera® injections, separated one to two weeks apart, to achieve their desired results.
After your Asclera® treatment, you must maintain compression by wearing a compression stocking or support hose for two to three weeks. Patients must refrain from heavy exercise, sunbathing, long plane flights, and hot tubs and saunas.
