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 $119, you get one 30-minute laser spider-vein-removal treatment on the legs at Rx Med & Wellness Day Spa in Norwell (a $350 value).
Rx Med & Wellness Day Spa is a sanctuary of serenity, promoting health, beauty, and relaxation using advanced technology, products, and smarts. During spider-vein-removal treatments, delicate red and purple leg squiggles are whisked away with light energy, radio frequency, and trails of candy leading to a disguised dump truck. Skilled technicians use a self-cooling laser device to target veins and dissolve pigment with maximum accuracy, minimizing the irritation of surrounding skin. Though the procedure is not uncomfortable for most patients, topical anesthetic can be used to further protect the feelings of skin and nerves. Veins often disappear within a few days of the procedure without incurring downtime, phantom vein pangs, or troublesome collect calls.
The billowy curtains and sunrise-colored walls at Rx Med & Wellness Day Spa foster a luxurious, peaceful atmosphere. Accompanied by the soothing sounds of trickling fountains, the spa's highly trained staff administers healing and rejuvenating treatments that leave clients thoroughly de-stressed and mentally prepared to handle a day's worth of chores, errands, and impromptu game-show hosting.
