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 $130 you get one sclerotherapy treatment with recovery support hose at Florida Skin Center (a $260 value).
The Florida Skin Center's board-certified dermatologists eradicate unsightly spider veins with sclerotherapy treatments. During 15- to 20-minute procedures, physician's assistants inject spider veins with small doses of sclerosing solution and tiny maids, which dust for skin-surface cobwebs and neutralize the eight legs of offending blood vessels, forcing the epidermal arachnids to diminish in appearance. Following the vein therapy, doctors expedite the healing process by compressing the treated area with support hosiery. Although additional treatments may be required to completely quash visible veins, patients can begin to see results after just one treatment. As a convenient bonus, aestheticians can accommodate busy patients with Saturday service upon request.
