Spider veins, much like spider monkeys, may attract attention when paraded about in a pair of shorts. Make sure your gams attract positive attention with today’s Groupon: for $175, you get three laser spider-vein treatments at Advanced Footcare (a $750 value).
At Advanced Footcare, a trio of podiatrists restore patients' legs to the manufacturer’s recommended settings using state-of-the-art laser technology. During each fast, virtually painless treatment, offensive, spindly capillaries are targeted with precise pulses of light energy that are absorbed and go to work breaking down the veins with their heat and incessant singing of show tunes. The pesky blood vessels are eventually absorbed naturally into the body over a period of four to six weeks, leaving the surrounding tissue unblemished. Spider veins usually fully retreat after two or three sessions, leaving rejuvenated hip sticks feeling unaffected and ready to shop, jump rope, or join a battling Riverdance crew.
A $115 consultation is not included with this Groupon, though your insurance company may cover this consultation. Insurance is not accepted for the treatment itself.
The podiatrists at Advanced Footcare, led by Dr. Charles Mutschler, Dr. Harold Reinhartz, and Dr. Vann Johnson, treat the foot and ankle ailments of athletes, children, and seniors with a combination of advanced technology and manual healing. When addressing issues such as tendon injuries and muscle pain, the doctors use shockwave therapy to stimulate the body’s self-healing mechanisms. Lasers are used to eliminate foot fungus and erase unwanted spider veins while keeping healthy tissue intact.
In addition to more futuristic treatments, the team also performs surgeries and prescribes medication and devices. Hands-on techniques can ease pain from sports practices or everyday refrigerator-lifting, such as active-release therapy, which addresses the internal scar tissue that binds free-moving muscles.
