Spider veins aren't just a source of pain and discomfort; they're also the leading cause of webbed toes and unwanted face flies. Exterminate unwanted body pests with today's Groupon: for $99, you get two non-invasive cosmetic spider vein treatments (a $600 value) at Vein Associates of Edina. Spider veins most commonly appear on the legs, and can potentially lessen after 2–3 treatments, though it may take as many as 5–6 to diminish them.
Vein Associates' master vein vanisher Dr. Robert Reese is a board-certified vascular surgeon. His skilled staff of capillary experts is on hand to help rid lovely legs of unsightly skin spindles. Visits begin with a professional consultation, during which a highly-trained staff member examines the area and recommends the number and type of treatments needed to fully alleviate symptoms, while also answering questions and taking note of acquired spidey-sense superpowers. Unlike some treatments that drive away spider veins by unleashing hordes of larger, hungrier spiders into the bloodstream, Vein Associates uses state-of-the-art sclerotherapy, a treatment involving the injection of a sclerosing solution directly into vessels to shrink veins and re-route blood flow to healthier areas. Although the initial reaction may cause slight cramping and discomfort for a few minutes, the solution will eventually transform the vein into scar tissue, which will then fade mostly away over time.
The procedure is safe for most skin types, including fair, sensitive, and extra crispy, and has a high success rate. Treatments last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, based on the size of the area and the severity of the condition, and exercise is encouraged following the procedure, giving patients all the more reason to slather on some sunscreen, shimmy into a pair of revealing lycra lederhosen, and show off newly gorgeous gams at the gym.
Thigh-high graded compression stockings are required after treatment. Patients can bring stockings with them or purchase a pair at the office for an additional charge.
