Unlike real spiders, spider veins are impervious to rolled up magazines and rarely inspire beloved children’s novels. Squash pesky skin arachnids with today's Groupon: for $129, you get two palm-sized, intense-light-therapy spider-vein removal treatments at Northwest Aesthetics in Kirkland (a $398 value).
Northwest Aesthetics’ Olga Voloshina, a board-certified nurse practitioner certified to treat spider veins, banishes stubborn capillaries with innovative intense-light-therapy treatments. In a consultation, Olga explains the procedure, which is more effective than laser therapy for treating spider veins nestled, like a pet parrot, deep within the skin. Patients relax as pulsed light illuminates epidermises, selectively targeting and destroying small spider veins and vascular birthmarks shaped like 19th-century presidents. The treatment evicts squatting spider veins in two to four treatments, depending on their number and size.
Nurse practitioner Olga Voloshina and her team of aestheticians divide their services into three categories, though all three serve the same purpose: to enhance the appearance of skin. The medical-grade facial services do so traditionally, with the help of cleansers, moisturizers, and exfoliation in the form of peels and microdermabrasion that are individually customized for each client. The laser and light treatments help clear up conditions such as rosacea, acne, and sun damage. They also administer injectables such as Botox and Juverderm to smooth out wrinkles on the skin's surface. Of course, before beginning any procedure, a staff member consults with each client to devise the proper treatment plan for the client's skin woes.
