Spider veins look like nets on legs, which can convince the appendages that they're butterflies or babies who kept crawling away. Convince limbs they’re not crazy with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a sclerotherapy leg-vein-removal treatment from Dr. Gail Humble MD in Redondo Beach (a $350 value).
Dr. Gail Humble routinely displays her expertise in nonsurgical aesthetic medicine on such programs as Fox News and Extra. After Dr. Humble determines that the spider or reticular legs veins are treatable with sclerotherapy, she’ll inject a specialized solution that causes each vein to close itself off and think about what it’s done as it fades away like Miss Havisham. The virtually painless procedure takes about 20 minutes, and patients may note up to a 60 percent vascular reduction within eight weeks of treatment. Doctors recommend wearing a low-pressure stocking or leg-hugging koala over the treated area for 15 days after the appointment.
Gail Humble, MD
As a physician who's double-board-certified in anesthesia and laser surgery, Dr. Gail Humble has found that her expertise is in demand. She's shared her knowledge in the pages of such press outlets as the Los Angeles Daily News and Skin & Aging magazine, and she's even appeared on Extra and other television shows. When she's not demonstrating her methods to the public, Dr. Humble's treating such skin problems as wrinkles, scarring, and varicose veins with the services that she determines will be most effective for each patient—especially for patients who write her nice cards that use the word "cool-tacular" a lot. One such method, Botox, reduces the appearance of fine lines by weakening the muscle activity that causes wrinkles. Meanwhile, IPL and Laser Genesis treatments promote collagen production and make the skin appear tighter, and facial peels remove the skin's damaged outer layers.
