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 $89, you get a 15-minute laser vein-removal treatment for the leg or face at Skin2O Med Spa in Suffolk (a $350 value).
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Guarda and her skilled laser-brandishing staff clear away bodily cobwebs using the gentle Cynosure Elite laser. One 15-minute leg- or facial-vein treatment targets a single problem area with a concentrated dose of laser energy that causes spider veins to disappear like cursive from a third-grade classroom's blackboard. The advanced laser eliminates only problem veins, leaving surrounding tissue unharmed and causing minimal discomfort. Most veins require one treatment before fading into nothingness, though veins that are more troublesome or are actually baby snakes may require an additional treatment. Full results appear within four weeks of the noninvasive treatment.
