We offer an office treatment of uncomplicated spider and uncomplicated reticular veins using Asclera.


What Is Asclera?


(Pronounced: A SKLER AH)


Asclera® (polidocanol) Injection is a prescription medicine that is used in a procedure called sclerotherapy and is administered by a healthcare provider to treat two types of veins:


Uncomplicated Spider Veins (very small varicose veins <1mm in diameter) and Uncomplicated small varicose veins (1 to 3mm in diameter) known as Reticular Veins.


How Does Asclera Work?


Asclera® is a sclerosing agent that is injected into the vein.


It works by damaging the endothelium, the cells lining the inside of blood vessels. This causes blood platelets to attach to the lining of the vessels; eventually, cellular debris and platelets cause the blood vessel to clot.


Over time, the clotted vein will be replaced with tissue.


How Long is Each Asclera Session?


A typical sclerotherapy session lasts 15 to 45 minutes. One injection is usually administered per inch with multiple injections per session.

How are your frown and brow lines?


Over time, repeated movement of the facial skin by the muscles forms frown lines between the eyebrows.


Wrinkles are not only age related. Frown lines are “dynamic”—they happen because of the way a person’s face moves. Because frown lines are created by facial movements such as frowning or squinting, they may develop even in younger adults. Dysport® is used to treat moderate to severe frown lines in adult patients less than 65 years of age.


The muscles above and between the eyebrows contract and tighten, and can cause wrinkles. Dysport blocks the nerve signal that causes these facial muscles to contract. This ultimately results in a localized reduction of muscle activity in the treated area and temporarily stops the contraction of these muscles.



Everybody's talking about Dysport, a prescription injection used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in adults less than 65 years of age.




Within 14 days after your first Dysport treatment, you must sign up for the Dysport Challenge at the Dysport website.


Download your Dysport Coupon Rebate Form and mail the rebate form and itemized receipt. You can get a $75 Rebate Check whether or not you have a second treatment.
