INTRODUCTION

ASKLEROL 3% contains Polidocanol which belongs to a group of medicines called sclerosing agents. It is used to treat two types of veins such as uncomplicated spider veins (very small varicose veins ≤ 1 mm in diameter) and uncomplicated small varicose veins (1 to 3 mm in diameter). This medicine is used in a procedure called sclerotherapy to remove unwanted veins on legs and has not been studied in varicose veins more than 3 mm in diameter. Varicose veins are caused by increased blood pressure in the veins. 

Polidocanol is a sclerosing agent which locally damages the endothelium of blood vessels. When injected intravenously, it induces endothelial damage. Platelets then aggregate at the site of damage and attach to the venous wall.  

Before receiving ASKLEROL 3%, tell your physician if you have any blood clotting diseases, allergies, liver, kidney or heart problems. Pregnant and breastfeeding women consult your doctor for advice. Wear a compression stockings or support hose on the treated legs continuously for 2 to 3 days and for 2 to 3 weeks during the daytime. Take a walk for 15 to 20 minutes immediately after the procedure and daily for the next few days. For two to three days following treatment, avoid heavy exercise, sunbathing, long plane flights and hot baths or sauna. The common side effects are injection site pain, irritation, discoloration and site clotting.
