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
Anisa and her entire team are extremely professional and very helpful. The office is immaculate and I truly didn't feel as if I was just a number but a valued client. They truly listened and cared about my needs. They answered all my questions and concerns regarding my options on fillers and what I was hoping to accomplished with realistic expectations.
Anisa is quite frankly THE BEST! I traveled from the SF Bay Area just to go to her med spa in Newport Beach, it would be my first time with any injectables. I researched and did consultations with multiple injectors in my own area (SF Bay Area) but couldn't find anyone I was comfortable with. There are a lot of scary looking injectors out there, some without credentials and others that just weren't interested in really taking the time to get to know my needs.
Very charismatic and foremost very professional service. I'm definitely coming back, this is the first time I try PRP and I'm very satisfied. I definitely recommend Dr. Munshi she's the best
