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 one sclerotherapy treatment at Greenville Vein and Aesthetics (a $400 value).
Donald Gilbert MD and his skilled crew at Greenville Vein and Aesthetics help diminish the appearance of spider veins with sclerotherapy treatments. During the approximately 30-minute session, a vein combatant uses a small needle to inject Sotradecol solution into spider veins and the surrounding feeder veins that peer pressure them. The substance aims to seal the offending vessels and stop small capillaries from dilating on the skin's surface. Blood reroutes to healthier veins, leaving the former spider vein to gradually diminish in appearance and scour classified ads for work as a movie extra.
A serene, spa-like atmosphere envelops patients at Greenville Vein and Aesthetics, calming minds and keeping nervous needles from poking nearby balloon animals. One session can treat veins on two legs, but additional treatments may be needed for optimal results. Sclerotherapy specialists advise that patients avoid sunlight two weeks prior to and four weeks after treatment to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation.
Though Greenville Vein and Aesthetics sometimes offers discounted services, this Groupon still represents the best value.
