Seventeenth-century shipping routes drastically improved once navigators began referring to actual maps of waterways instead of the veins on their thighs. Steer clear of veiny skin with today's Groupon: for $199, you get a consultation and one hour of sclerotherapy treatment plus complimentary compression garments from Joey Manduano D.O. Plastic Surgery and Professional Skincare Clinic (a $400 value).
Board-certified physician Joey Manduano and his skilled staff lure inner beauty outward with an array of minimally invasive treatments. A consultation with Dr. Manduano will determine eligible patients, who will receive a 60-minute sclerotherapy treatment, an FDA-approved procedure that eliminates spider veins and capillary graffiti etched along the legs. Nancy Medley, a registered nurse with more than 20 years of injection experience, utilizes a tiny needle to inject a saline solution into unwanted blood tunnels, forcing the cell walls to dry out, collapse, and diminish in appearance. Over the course of six months, spider veins caused by aging, pregnancy, and Rockette high-kicks will vanish as blood is redirected to healthier vessels and circulation improves. Most patients report minimal pain, and post-treatment legs will be sheathed in complimentary compression garments for up to six weeks to promote healing. Up to four sessions are recommended for optimal vein-free complexions.
