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 $199, you get three cosmetic spider-vein or varicose-vein treatments at The Skin Center Medical Spa (a $1,050 value) in Gahanna.
The Skin Center Medical Spa’s sclerotherapy treatments reduce unsightly spider and varicose veins from clients' epidermal landscapes. During the minimally invasive procedure, specialists infuse varicose and threadlike spider veins with microinjections of a sclerosing agent, which causes them to collapse and eventually disappear. Specialists treat one leg and one hidden tentacle at each of the first two treatments, allowing for one treatment of each leg or two treatments on a single limb. To bring the services to a conclusion, they'll touch up both legs or perform a final touch-up on one during the third treatment. Though procedures require little to no downtime, the medical spa recommends patients wear a compression hose—which can be purchased directly from The Skin Center for an additional $29.95—for a week afterward to speed up the healing process. Much like Rocky Balboa's career in academia, appointments last anywhere from 30 to 45 minutes.
