Sclerotherapy is a minimally invasive procedure done by your healthcare provider to treat uncomplicated spider veins and uncomplicated reticular veins. The treatment involves the injection of a solution into the affected veins.
How does Asclera work?
Asclera® is a sclerosing agent that is injected into the vein. It works by damaging the inner wall of the vein, and eventually causing the vein to collapse on itself. Overtime, the damaged vein is replaced with tissue. Individual results may vary, and many patients will require multiple injection sessions for complete treatment success.
95% of patients, predominately Caucasian females, treated with Asclera® showed good or complete treatment success as rated by physicians.
Asclera results were statistically significant when compared to placebo (p<0.0001) for the primary efficacy criterion “improvement of veins.”
Acne affects people of all ages and races – though most commonly people in their teens, early 20’s and 30’s and sometimes even older. According to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), acne is caused by the overproduction of androgens, hormones that are present in both males and females, however research has shown that outbreaks in males may be worse due to more skin oils.
This skin problem can be caused by hormonal changes (such as during menstrual periods, puberty, or pregnancy), high stress levels, humidity, sweating, birth control pills, and use of greasy and oily skin products.
The amount of treatments depends on your skin condition and unique skin type. A typical treatment plan includes three BBL light therapy treatments and three VI peel treatments. The two are to be done alternately once every month. A complimentary consultation is recommended to determine a treatment plan that is best for you.
