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 $59, you get a spider-vein consultation and a 30-minute sclerotherapy treatment at Vein Treatment Center of San Antonio (a $180 value).
Vein Treatment Center of San Antonio attacks unsightly spider veins with a combination of expert evaluation and specialized chemical remedies. Beginning with a consultation, a seasoned vein voyager explores visible vessels using cutting-edge equipment to determine personal spider-vein specifics and optimal temporary-tattoo locations. Then, a 30-minute sclerotherapy treatment involves injecting an FDA–approved solution into unwanted arachnocapillaries that causes them to shrivel and fade. Sclerotherapy requires no downtime, so customers can immediately resume their pursuit of one-upping a rival Rockette. Groupon-redeeming patients who require additional treatments can take advantage of additional vein sealings at a half-off rate for either 60-minute ($150 after discount) or 30-minute ($80 after discount) sessions.
Vein Treatment Center of San Antonio
Veteran vascular surgeon Dr. William P. Kalchoff has established vein clinics across the world—from San Antonio to São Paulo—in order to help patients eliminate spider and varicose veins. At the Vein Treatment Center of San Antonio, his staffers use not only traditional vein-removal techniques but also more advanced laser treatments to gently and effectively erase noticeable vessels. Small needles are gently injected into surface veins during sclerotherapy treatments, which leave no scarring and require no anesthesia. Knotted and twisted veins known as varicose veins can be treated with a phlebectomy, which removes the faulty section of the vessel, whereas endovenous laser sessions effectively destroy the veins by subjecting them to a visual interpretation of Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon.
Along with offering vein-removal treatments, the clinic provides advanced aesthetic services at its adjoining MedSpa de Abeja. Dermal fillers are injected into the face to temporarily remove fine lines and deeper-set wrinkles, whereas aestheticians rely on Cellex-C and Obagi products to brighten and even skin tone during facials.
