Unlike real spiders, spider veins are impervious to rolled-up magazines and rarely inspire beloved children’s novels. Squash pesky skin arachnids with today’s Groupon to Alaska Vein Care in Wasilla. For $199, you get one of the following:
- A spider-vein treatment package (a $600 total value) that includes:
- An initial consultation (a $100 value)
- A spider-vein treatment (a $500 value)
- $1,000 toward a varicose-vein treatment.<p>
Licensed and board-certified doctors vanquish unwanted veins with minimally invasive treatments that draw on the latest technological advancements in phlebology and sclerotherapy. Following an initial consultation, Dr. Johnson lulls spider veins to sleep by droningly reciting the chemical composition of the sclerosing agent as he injects it into the targeted area. The sclerosant sloshes through the vein’s interior walls, sealing the inner lining shut and hindering blood flow to the affected area. Though results vary, the staff typically recommends two or three treatments to achieve arachnid-free skin.
To rid evidence of varicose veins and restore normal circulation, opt for an Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT) treatment. During treatments, laser fibers are inserted into offensively visible veins, closing them to internal through-traffic and thus fading them from sight. This in-office treatment evicts blemishes and typically only requires local anesthesia, and both procedures boast high success rates. Many health-insurance plans cover EVLT, but today’s Groupon assists with additional out-of-pocket expenses, such as the deductible, co-pay, and co-insurance ($1,000/leg average).
