Seventeenth-century shipping routes drastically improved once navigators began referring to actual maps of waterways instead of the veins on their thighs. Steer clear of veiny skin with today's Groupon: for $175, you get a spider-vein consultation and one 10-minute treatment at Vein Treatment and Aesthetic Center in Overland Park (up to a $400 value).
Headed by vein-treatment veteran Dr. Jay Richardson, Vein Treatment and Aesthetic Center offers multiple treatment options for the targeting of snaky blood vessels. Visits start with a 15-minute consultation that will determine whether veins will be best treated with sclerotherapy, pulsed laser therapy, or inculcation with self-destructive arachnophobic impulses. In the pulsed laser therapy, intense light is directed at veins, damaging vessels and causing them to shrink and fade. Most patients report a mild stinging during treatment, akin to the snap of a rubber band. Veins treated with sclerotherapy are harried by a vein-irritating injection, prompting them to shrink like the confidence of a lion tamer with a sirloin top hat. Both treatments can result in temporary side effects such as bruising, swelling, redness, and pigment change.
Most treatments last roughly 10 minutes, though particularly stubborn veins may take longer. Two to four sessions are recommended for maximum effectiveness, allowing Groupon-bearing customers to put their spider veins on the ropes before landing knockout blows with further treatments.
