Spider veins look like nets on legs, which can convince the appendages that they're butterflies or babies who kept crawling away. Avoid confounding your legs any further with today’s Groupon: for $149, you get two sclerotherapy spider vein treatments at Vein Center of the Palm Beaches in West Palm Beach (a $730 value).
At Vein Center of the Palm Beaches, Dr. Z. Catherine Navarro uses her more than 25 years of medical experience to help relieve patients of spider-veined skin and other venous maladies. During a comprehensive pre-treatment consultation, she’ll thoroughly examine patients’ legs, evaluate symptoms, and administer a short quiz on state capitals before recommending a course of treatment. Some clients may also require an ultrasound, which is not included in today’s Groupon but is usually covered by insurance. Then, during a sclerotherapy treatment, a trained technician injects a powerful solution that seals veins shut, cutting off blood flow so that they eventually fade away, like wax scars from preschool Crayola duels. Patients report only mild discomfort from the microneedle, and because no incisions or anesthetics are used, no downtime is necessary.
Although sclerotherapy treatments can be effective after as few as two sessions, many patients will see the best results after five to six treatments. Each session lasts approximately 30 minutes, roughly the same amount of time it takes to tooth-whittle a No. 2 pencil totem pole.
