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 $99, you get two spider-vein treatments from the Jacksonville Vein Center at Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgical Associates (a $550 value).
Dr. Geoffrey Risley, the Jacksonville Vein Center’s medical director and board-certified vascular surgeon, and his staff specialize in safe and effective beauty procedures. During sclerotherapy sessions, a solution is injected into the inner lining of spider veins, debilitating their blood-schlepping capabilities and commanding permanent closure. Each arachno-battle lasts approximately 15 minutes and, despite intense needle-web projectile exchanges, patients feel only slight discomfort throughout the fray. Resilient spider veins fatigue most efficiently over treatments scheduled four to six weeks apart and after three to four sclerotherapeutic downpours, 70%−80% of them give up and exile themselves to the nearest desolate desert.
