BEVERLY HILLS, CA, October 28, 2010 – Crawling under her skin, they multiply to create an unsightly purple web that lowers a woman’s hem quicker than the latest fashion trend, or drives her from the beach and swimsuit for the reassurance of shorts or jeans. But spider, or varicose veins, no longer need to be hidden or tolerated with the breakthrough Asclera treatment offered by Dr. Simon Ourian of Epione Medical in Beverly Hills.
The unsightly swollen or twisted veins virtually evaporate with Dr. Ourian’s treatment that incorporates the new injection drug. “Varicose veins and the smaller so-called spider veins are most common on a person’s legs, but can appear anywhere on the body and seemingly out of nowhere, ” Dr. Ourian says of the treatment approved this year by the federal Food and Drug Administration. “That’s why Asclera injections, a type of sclerotherapy treatment, are so attractive. They are especially suited for treatment of small types of varicose veins in which improving appearance is the goal.”
“The injection process allows me to be precise with treatment while providing an alternative to laser use, which also yields fine results but may not be the optimal choice in some cases, adds Dr. Ourian.”
Asclera injections are approved for use on spider veins (tiny varicose veins less than 1 millimeter in diameter) and reticular veins (those that are 1 to 3 millimeters in diameter). Asclera works by forcing the body to repair and adapt. The injected solution damages an effected vein’s lining, causing the vein to close and thereby stopping blood flow. Swelling, discomfort, pain and discoloration cease with the elimination of the troublesome vein, while new vessels form to return blood flow to the surrounding area.

Dr. Ourian’s sclerotherapy treatment has provided the desired results, both physical and aesthetic, for patients grateful to be pain free for the first time in years and able to show off the svelte, athletic legs they work so religiously to shape. “Sclerotherapy helped eliminate all of my varicose veins. I was very pleased with the excellent results, ” said one of Dr. Ourian’s patients.
Just as important as the results for most patients is the care and service they received during the sclerotherapy process. “I have had great experiences here with the staff as well as the doctor. I am forever a returning customer. Thank you for your services, ” another patient said.
Epione Center’s spa-like environment also is a comfort to many patients, who find their time with Dr. Ourian and his staff passes quickly, especially with a treatment that takes a mere 30 to 45 minutes.
Asclera is distributed by BioForm Medical Inc. of Franksville, Wis., and manufactured by Chemische Fabrik Kreussler & Co. of Wiesbaden, Germany.
