Like road rage and sea monsters, spider veins are preferably kept below the surface. Help to safely conceal vexed veins with today's Groupon: for $149, you get one sclerotherapy spider vein treatment for the legs, plus an ultrasound scan at Ciao Bella Medical Spa & Vein Clinic in Chandler (up to an $800 value).
Combining an extensive background in cosmetic surgery and internal medicine Dr. Edgardo Zavala-Alarcon diminishes the appearance of spider veins using minimally invasive sclerotherapy. Before evicting unwelcome vein-villains, Dr. Zavala-Alarcon uses ultrasound imaging and a team of microscopic cartographers to map out venous irregularities and identify what triggers the appearance of the spindly leg pests. The virtually painless half-hour treatment commandeers a fleet of tiny needles, which penetrate poorly patrolled venous fortresses to inject a safe chemical solution into the blood vessel, causing the vein walls to contract and eventually shrink away altogether as they are absorbed back into the body. Following treatment, patients are advised to bundle limbs in compressive socks or outfit them with clingy koalas for up to two weeks to ensure optimal results.
Groupon customers who do not qualify for sclerotherapy can apply the $800 value of the Groupon toward other services excluding Botox.
Ciao Bella Medical Spa & Vein Clinic
Dr. Edgardo Zavala-Alarcon comes from a long line of Mexican doctors, a tradition he continued by becoming a prominent cardiologist in Mexico. But when his country's climate grew unstable in the 1990s, he made the tough decision to uproot his family and move to the United States. Though not an easy transition—one filled with the years-long process of becoming reaccredited as a cardiologist—Dr. Zavala-Alarcon trucked on, eventually becoming an Arizona hospital’s chief of cardiology and obtaining his certificate in cosmetic surgery. He now operates out of his own family-run clinic, where he enhances clients' natural beauty with treatments ranging from nonsurgical nose jobs and laser vein-removal treatments to liposuction and breast augmentation. His extensive knowledge of internal medicine and cardiology serves him well in the cosmetic field, as it helps decrease the usual risks associated with surgical procedures.
Inside Ciao Bella Medical Spa & Vein Clinic, patients are greeted in an elegant front lounge filled with burnt-orange walls, marbled floor tiles, and dark leather couches. From there, they whisper a secret password to a potted plant before being led to a treatment rooms, where Dr. Zavala-Alarcon and his trained medical staff provide informative consultations before administering aesthetic procedures.
