Board-certified surgeon Dr. Jay Richardson and his staff of body-beautifying wizards clear mottled skin with two different types of spider-vein treatments. During an initial consultation, technicians carefully examine the offending blood vessels to learn the names of their lymph-node accomplices and whether sclerotherapy or intense-pulsed-light treatments will be more effective against them. With sclerotherapy, technicians inject tiny amounts of a serum that collapses veins, closing off blood flow so discoloration can be absorbed back into the body. Alternatively, intense pulsed light uses carefully calibrated energy beams to shrink veins into nonexistence, sometimes yielding a mild stinging sensation or recurring dreams about being a compact disc.
Though procedures usually last less than 10 minutes, larger veins may require extra treatment time (an additional $25/minute), and actual spiders may require a visit to the office toad. Though this Groupon does not cover additional time or treatments, Dr. Richardson and his staff recommend two to four treatments spaced about three weeks apart for best results.
