Spider veins cast a seemingly permanent net over human legs, convincing the appendages that they're butterflies. Let your legs flutter to freedom with today's Groupon: for $150, you get three cosmetic sclerotherapy spider- or varicose-vein treatments at The Skin Center Medical Spa (a $1,050 value), with three locations in Pittsburgh, Wexford, and Shadyside. The Skin Center's staff is adept at performing minimally invasive cosmetic procedures on wrinkly, spotty, or otherwise unsightly epidermises. During a sclerotherapy treatment, a nurse injects varicose and spider veins with a saline or chemical solution to cause them to fade. While there is little to no downtime for this procedure, patients will have to wear compression hose for a few days afterward to speed healing, and it may take months for veins to fade completely.
Compression hose are recommended (but not required) to aid in the healing process after this procedure. They can be purchased directly from The Skin Center for $26.50 and are also available from most pharmacies.
