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 cosmetic sclerotherapy spider- or varicose-vein treatment at The Skin Center Medical Spa (a $410 value). This Groupon is redeemable at all three of its locations in Pennsylvania.
After identifying various spider- and varicose-vein problems and recommending the appropriate treatment, the medical staff at The Skin Center Medical Spa injects veins with a saline or chemical solution during minimally invasive sclerotherapy procedures. This solution causes the offending blood highways to collapse and disappear, which can reduce the appearance of leg lines almost immediately. Veins continue to fade over the course of several weeks after the treatment, which can last 15–45 minutes, but multiple sessions may be required for optimal results or to pilfer enough forceps. Though they're not required, some patients may have to wear compression hose for a few days to speed up the healing process, resulting in legs that are prettier than a model dipped in gold. The hose can be purchased at The Skin Center Medical Spa or at most pharmacies.
