Though spiders play an integral role in our ecosystem, spider veins are increasingly endangering the skirt and kilt populations. Let legs roam freely with today's deal: for $149, you get two spider-vein treatments at Skin Renaissance Clinic in Chesapeake (a $500 value).
With the help of an experienced team of vein vanishers, Skin Renaissance Clinic utilizes sclerotherapy to reduce the appearance of small spider veins and to ensure patients show off their striking gams with newfound confidence. Not to be confused with varicose veins, which are larger, darker, and tend to bulge, veins in the arthropod family lie close to the surface of the skin and are not essential to the larger venous system. A typical treatment lasts between 15 and 45 minutes, depending on how much surface area is being treated, and approximately one injection is administered for every inch of vein web. The narrow needle and mild solution minimize pain, and patients may read, listen to music, or quiz the doctor on 1970s sitcom theme songs. Each session aims to make veins appear lighter, enhancing each patient’s appearance, self-confidence, and likelihood to appear in a remake video of Rod Stewart's 1978 hit, "Hot Legs."
After each treatment some bruising and redness is normal, though patients can feel free to show off their legs during synchronized-swimming competitions about one month after an appointment. While walking is encouraged to prevent blot clots from forming, prolonged sitting and standing, heavy weightlifting, jogging, and tightrope walking all the way to work should be avoided.
