President Eisenhower took the inspiration for his interstate system from the body's network of veins, intending eventually to coat the entire nation in a thick, protective layer of skin. Keep your blood highways hidden with today's Groupon: for $150, you get a consultation and 30-minute vein sclerotherapy treatment at Advanced Anti-Aging and Aesthetic Medicine in Buckhead (a $300 value).
Helmed by a trio of physicians, Advanced Anti-Aging and Aesthetic Medicine eliminates unsightly veins, restoring skin to smooth, unblemished beauty with treatments delivered in a comfortable, professional setting. Patients start visits with a consultation, taking stock of leg-bound varicose vessels and discussing treatment options with a doctor. In the half-hour sclerotherapy treatment, a tiny needle injects varicose veins with a chemical solution, causing the vein to collapse and fade from view like a sandcastle under a mighty hovercraft. Though the treatment offers minimal pain, those with sensitive skin can be protected with a local anesthetic.
After the treatment, legs can remain bruised for several weeks as the vein gradually accepts its fate, writes its memoirs, and retires from public life. Though patients are advised to wear pressure-exerting bands and stockings after the procedure, there is no downtime, allowing sclerotherapees to return immediately to work, play, or divisive office laser-tag battles.
