Spider veins had long baffled scientists until phlebologists realized blood often tries to escape the body to realize its dream of starring in horror films. Keep your blood grounded with today's Groupon: for $125, you get a half-hour spider-vein treatment at South Valley Vein Center (a $250 value) on 19th Street. This Groupon must be redeemed before April 30.
Board-certified surgeon Dr. Gregory G. Williams has swept spider veins off more than 2,000 patients since opening his practice in 2002. During a complimentary evaluation, a registered nurse determines the best treatment by assessing cutaneous cobwebs that mar legs, hands, chest, face, or dorsal fins. Most patients receive sclerotherapy, a series of ultrasound-guided injections that collapses spider veins with minimum discomfort. Patients will notice an improved appearance, but additional visits are suggested to achieve flesh as flawless as Winnie the Pooh's driving record.
