What You'll Get
Though Mother Nature endows us with our beauty marks, she occasionally errs, stamping humans with unsightly spider veins and sentient freckles. Correct Mrs. Nature's misdoings with today's Groupon: for $169, you get one sclerotherapy treatment for spider veins and small varicose veins on one to two legs depending on the amount of veins per leg, plus a consultation at California Vein Clinic in Fair Oaks (a $500 value).
During a consultation, Dr. Garfinkle evaluates if patients are proper candidates for sclerotherapy. The 15–20 minute treatment barricades dead-end veins with injections of chemical solutions that reroute blood onto safer inner interstates. With minimal discomfort and no downtime, patients are immediately free to resume working, running errands, or hailing passing comets.
If Dr. Garfinkle determines a patient has a severity of varicose veins that will not respond to sclerotherapy, this Groupon's full $500 value may be applied toward the recommended treatment. Alternatively, buyers are eligible for a full refund from Groupon if not deemed a candidate for sclerotherapy.

About California Vein Clinic
Board-certified surgeon and vascular specialist Dr. Syd Garfinkle has been practicing medicine in the Sacramento area for more than 35 years. Over three and a half decades, he has become an expert at wiping out unsightly veins using a variety of nonsurgical methods. During sclerotherapy treatments, Dr. Garfinkle uses injectable medications to collapse and dissappear spider veins while diverting blood back into healthier vessels. Alternatively, for vericose veins, he can guide a thin laser fiber into the veins to zap them shut during endovenous laser treatments (EVLT).
