Spider veins, much like spider monkeys, may attract attention when paraded about in a pair of shorts. Avoid stares directed at your primate parts with today’s Groupon: for $99, you get a laser spider-vein-treatment package from Audrey J. Bruell, MD in Livonia (up to a $300 total value) that includes the following:
- One 30-minute laser spider-vein treatment (up to a $250 value)
- Visia skin analysis (a $50 value)<p>
Alongside a highly trained staff, board-certified dermatologist Audrey J. Bruell channels more than 20 years’ worth of skincare expertise into ousting unsightly spider veins with Cool Touch laser treatments. Clients can snipe at troublesome squiggles anywhere on their bodies during the 30-minute procedure, which causes minimal discomfort. As a relatively painless alternative to sclerotherapy, the session requires no downtime and results in minimal bruising for all skin types. Multiple appointments may be necessary depending on each patient and the number of Road Closed signs erected for joyriding blood cells.
In addition to ridding their limbs of unflattering branches, visitors also receive a Visia skin analysis. After the system snaps a still frame of reposing mugs, a color take-home printout maps complexions based on six categories: wrinkles, texture, pores, brown spots, red areas, and UV spots. The computer also compares results to a database of facial charts in the same age group, gauging overall dermal health and rating one’s affinity for monocles on a scale from one to devastatingly dapper.
