Spider veins look like nets on legs, which can convince the appendages that they're butterflies or babies who kept crawling away. Release kickers from captivity with today's Groupon: for $89, you get a 15-minute vein treatment that utilizes sclerotherapy (a $350 value) or laser technology (a $300 value) at Cosmetic Vein Center in Virginia Beach (up to a $350 total value).
Board-certified physician Dr. Matthew Mitsch and the team of professionals at Cosmetic Vein Center help to reduce the appearance of varicose and spider veins on legs with sclerotherapy injections or pulses from the Palomar laser. After a consultation in which the doctor examines the patient's legs and answers any lingering questions or riddles from bridge trolls, he will assign the appropriate 15-minute treatment and render legs smooth during the same appointment if possible. In sclerotherapy sessions, an injected solution irritates the vein walls, causing them to close up and reroute blood to other veins. The office staff then fits the patient for the required set of posttherapy stockings, which may be purchased for around $20 at the Center or at a local drug store. Complimentary follow-up visits may be necessary to determine the success of the treatment. Sclerotherapy requires no downtime, though recovery includes limitations on tanning, exercise, and participation in Rockette-kicking marathons.
If the doctor deems the laser treatment is the most appropriate course of action, the Palomar laser will deliver a highly concentrated beam of light to targeted tissue in a noninvasive or minimally invasive procedure. The tissue reacts with the light energy, causing the vein to host a going-out-of-business circulatory sale before shutting its doors.
