What is Sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy is a minimally-invasive procedure that diminishes the appearance of spider veins. A chemical, the sclerosant, is injected with a fine needle into the targeted vein to irritate the inner lining of the vein. This eventually causes the vein to collapse. The pooled blood that was once in the diseased vein then redirects into surrounding healthy and normal functioning veins. Over time, the collapsed veins turn into scar tissue, fade from view, and are naturally removed from the body.
At Beauty Boost Med Spa, we use Asclera (polidocanol), a sclerosing agent indicated to treat uncomplicated spider veins (varicose veins ≤1 mm in diameter) and uncomplicated reticular veins (varicose veins 1 to 3 mm in diameter) in the lower extremity.
Once delivered, the medical solution irritates the inner lining of the vein. This eventually causes the vein to collapse. The pooled blood that was once in the diseased vein then redirects into surrounding healthy and normal functioning veins. Over time, the collapsed veins turn into scar tissue, fade from view, and are naturally removed from the body. Sclerotherapy is most popularly used to treat small visible veins in areas of the legs, but it can also be used to reduce the appearance of small veins in other various parts of the body.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The strength of the solution and the volume injected is dependent on the size and extent of the varicose veins. Extensive varicosities may require multiple treatment sessions separated by 6-8 weeks.
Patients are required to bring compression stockings to their treatment session. In most cases, these stockings are available for purchase at a pharmacy or online.

What our clients are saying
I am so happy and thankful to have found Beauty Boost & Anisa! I came to Beauty Boost after nearly a year of research, and ultimately felt making the drive from LA to Newport would be worth it due to the dozens of 5-star reviews and results I had seen on Instagram.
Where do I start... Anisa is the sweetest person thats knows her shit! I got the under eye filler and was super nervous before, but because Anisa is so talented and delicate with her hands, I felt absolutely no pain! The results were incredible and really liked how she was so honest during the consultations and recommended just what I needed. I am definitely coming back and with some friends!!
First off, Beauty Boost med spa customer service is awesome!!! Heather did an amazing job on my lip boost!! She is very attentive and understands exactly what I’ve been looking for. I will definitely be coming back!!!
