Though its primary purpose remains disrupting college lectures and movie screenings, laser light has also proven useful in the removal of spider veins. This smooth-making Groupon lets you reap the benefits of America's favorite repurposed supervillain weapon.
$139 for Two Spider-Vein-Removal Treatments ($400 Value)
Each noninvasive 30-minute procedure aims to destroy the veins, allowing them to shrivel and vanish from sight. Treatments can be used on both legs or on the upper body, which includes the face, neck, arms, stomach, and back. If needed, customers can purchase two additional sessions at the Groupon rate. Numbing cream is available for an additional charge.
Profiles Laser & Medical Aesthetics
Registered nurse Lisa Grissim opened Profiles Laser & Medical Aesthetics to improve the health and look of the body’s largest and most visible organ: the skin. She recruited Dr. Thomas Miller to supervise the staff, which includes fellow registered nurses and licensed aestheticians. The crew’s intense focus on skin treatments—which range from anti-aging laser treatments to Botox injections—grants them a degree of expertise they use to help customers understand their skincare options. Staffers unpack technical terms and lend personalized advice to steer clients toward ideal treatments. Lisa explains, “We want to form lasting relationships with clients and rejoice with them as they experience the changes they desire.”
Though it has the staff, state-of-the-art laser equipment, and immortality serums of an advanced med-spa, the office sets itself apart with an upscale, salon-like atmosphere. Sun floods the lobby, where bunches of flowers and potted plants add an organic element to the modern décor. Shelves line up some of the world’s premiere skincare lines, including Obagi, Avène, and SkinCeuticals.
