“Varicose and spider veins can be efficiently treated with sclerotherapy. It’s frequently regarded as the best option for treating minor varicose veins.
A solution is injected directly into the vein during sclerotherapy. Blood is forced to reroute through healthier veins because of the vein scarring caused by the sclerotherapy solution. The distended vein is gradually reabsorbed into the surrounding tissue and disappears.
Treatable veins often disappear after sclerotherapy within a few weeks, though occasionally it may take a month or longer to see the full effects. Multiple sessions of sclerotherapy may be required in some cases.”

Tracee is amazing! I originally started seeing her for B12 injections which evolved to LIPO/B12 injections. I recently attended her open house at her new location. It is gorgeous and set up perfectly for the other services she now offers. I would trust her for any of them! If I could give her 10 stars, I would!
Congratulations on the Grand Opening yesterday. I’ve been going to Lisa with Suburban Brow for years, she does an amazing job. I booked a Hydra facial appointment with Purebeauty_by Michelle, I’m so excited! I’m sure Hydra facials will be part of my routine.
I recently went in for a B12 shot on a recommendation from a friend. WOW! The boost in energy, weight loss, and improved sleep cycle has changed my life. With a busy workload and family duties, I don’t have the time to hit the gym like I used to. This B12 shot gave me the endorphins I used to get from working out. I’ll be going back for routine visits with Tracee for sure. She’s the best.

According to the Asclera website: “Asclera® (polidocanol) Injection is a prescription medicine that is used in a procedure called sclerotherapy to remove unwanted veins on your legs. It is administered by a healthcare provider to treat two types of veins:
- Uncomplicated spider veins (very small varicose veins ≤ 1 mm in diameter)
- Uncomplicated small varicose veins (1 to 3 mm in diameter) known as reticular veins
- Asclera® has not been studied in varicose veins more than 3 mm in diameter.”
“Following treatment, you’ll need to wear compression stockings day and night for 2 to 3 days, then for 2 to 3 weeks during the daytime, as directed by your provider. Compression stockings are designed to apply pressure to your lower legs, helping to maintain blood flow, and reduce discomfort and swelling. Compression helps your legs heal and is necessary to reduce the risk of deep vein thrombosis.
Compression Hose: Length of Wear
Spider Veins: 2-3 days
Reticular Veins: 5-7 days
You should also walk 15 to 20 minutes immediately after treatment and daily for a few days.”

According to the Asclera website “The number and frequency of treatments depends on the size of the vessels and their location. Ask your provider about an individualized treatment approach that is right for you.”

According to the Asclera website; “Temporary side effects may occur at the site of the injection, including:
- Raised red areas
- Small skin sores
- Darkened skin in the form of lines or spots
- Multiple tiny red blood vessels
These side effects usually go away within a few days to several weeks. Some side effects may take months or years to resolve.
Although rare, some individuals may experience serious side effects, which may require treatment. These can include:
- An allergic reaction. Severe allergic reactions have been reported following polidocanol use, including anaphylactic reactions, some of them fatal. Severe reactions are most frequent with use of larger volumes (> 3 mL). The dose of polidocanol should therefore be minimized. A provider should be prepared to treat anaphylaxis appropriately
- In rare cases, formation of small “burns” or ulcers form, usually due to leakage of Asclera® into the skin. These will heal in time but may leave a scar
- Inadvertent perivascular injection of Asclera® can cause pain. If pain is severe, a local anesthetic (without adrenaline) may be injected”
– ASCLERA® website
According to the Asclera website; “Asclera® (polidocanol) Injection is contraindicated for patients with known allergy (anaphylaxis) to polidocanol and patients with acute vein and blood clotting diseases.” Pregnancy and breastfeeding is also contraindicated.

According to the Asclera website; “88% of clinical study patients were satisfied or very satisfied with their Asclera® treatment after 12 weeks.”
