What You'll Get
Spider veins look like nets on legs, which can convince the appendages that they’re butterflies or babies who kept crawling away. Grant appendages freedom with today’s Groupon: for $199, you get a sclerotherapy spider-vein treatment at Varicosis, Cosmetic and Laser Center in Hoover (up to a $722 value).
The sclerotherapy treatment includes:
- One treatment for both legs (a $310 value)
- Consultation (a $110 value)
- Compression stockings (up to a $102 value)
- Preliminary venous testing (a $200 value)
Varicosis, Cosmetic and Laser Center’s Dr. Timothy D. Parish, a board-certified physician and registered vascular interpreter, banishes weakened surface veins and tends to their underlying venous issues with [sclerotherapy](http://gr.pn/n1mr4d) treatments. Before performing the sclerotherapy injection, Dr. Parish conducts a consultation to determine legs’ needs and executes a preliminary venous testing to determine vein issues such as adverse hormonal changes or a codependent relationship with the pancreas. The doctor then injects FDA-approved irritant medication into surface veins, which induces inflammation in vein walls. As the inflammation subsides, veins collapse and disappear without the hook-aided stage evictions of vaudevillian shows. Sclerotherapy also enhances circulation, as it reroutes blood from beleaguered veins to the main thoroughfares of deeper muscular passages. Patients must wait between two to four weeks to see results or to continue treatments. Legs heal naturally after each injection and may return to their normal daily activities immediately following treatment, but they should sport compression stockings to curtail runaway circulation for several days after. The treatment may result in minimal discomfort, which can be soothed with nitrous oxide anesthesia at an additional cost ($40). Though not included in this deal, some patients may require a venous ultrasound—which are normally covered by insurance—prior to treatment to determine eligibility and to reveal any offensive sub-dermal graffiti. _Some conditions not eligible for treatment are pregnancy, breast feeding, blood clots and/or phlebitis, insulin dependent diabetes, inability to walk briskly for 20 minutes, and some medications such as Prednisone. If you have any questions prior to purchasing Groupon, please call the office at during office hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at (205) 822-6333. Although most people need a few treatments ( depending on the extent of their condition) to see optimum results, each treatment works gradually to minimize the veins over several weeks._

About Parish Vein Laser Dermatology
More than 15,000 patients have passed through Parish Vein Laser Dermatology’s doors since it opened in 1995. Dr. Timothy Parish has been at the helm the entire time and, although he’s added several skills to his resumé since, he still takes the time to personally outline a treatment plan and perform ultrasounds for each patient with varicose veins. A registered vascular technician and registered physician in vascular interpretation, Dr. Parish eschews painful vein-stripping procedures for innovative methods including endovenous laser treatment, which uses laser fibers to damage the vein walls, eventually causing them to break down, pack up their belongings, and disappear. Beyond vanquishing problem veins, Dr. Parish and his team have also mastered several cosmetic procedures, including laser hair removal, chemical peels, and dermal fillers such as Botox and Juvéderm.
Doctor Parish has been in the media on Fox 6 news, Daytime Alabama, and America's Health Network as well as having been published in Birmingham Magazine, B-Metro magazine and many others educating the public on leg and facial veins as well as cosmetic treatments such as Botox and Juvéderm He opened up Alabama's first vein center in 1995 and is a published expert on veins, lasers, and tumescent liposuction.
