Spider veins look like nets on legs, which can convince the appendages that they're butterflies or babies who kept crawling away. Clear up the confusion with today’s Groupon: for $139, you get two cosmetic spider vein treatments at NM Vein Treatment Center in Las Cruces (a $500 value).
Dr. Khan, who has more than 30 years experience in treating villainous veins, leads a team of registered nurses in whisking away spider veins with minimally invasive methods. Prior to the procedure, the doctor will examine cutaneous cobwebs to rule out the possibility of complicating conditions, such as the presence of varicose veins or venous insufficiency. Customers can opt for a local anesthetic before undergoing each sclerotherapy treatment, during which the doctor will flush troublesome veins with a salt solution that causes vessels to shrink away. Though slight bruising may occur, bodies will naturally reabsorb spider-vein tissue as fast as a kindergartener can slurp a milkshake made with glue. After the treatment, patients must wear compression hosiery, and treated areas should not be exposed to the sun or swimming pools for at least three weeks posttreatment. Patients must wait at least six weeks before their subsequent session, and up to six treatments are recommended for maximum results.
