Spider veins, much like spider monkeys, may attract attention when paraded about in a pair of shorts. Lay low with today's Groupon: for $199, you get a spider-vein treatment at Vena - The Varicose Vein Institute in Waukesha (a $500 value).
Dr. Bruce Cardone, an experienced phlebologist and radiologist, whisks away spider veins through nonsurgical intervention, permanently removing painful or unsightly veins. The doctor begins by examining the capillaries in question to ensure an appropriate treatment plan before numbing the area with a topical anesthetic and inserting a series of very small needles. Patients may feel a mosquito-bite sensation, but the treatment does not cause large amounts of pain, discomfort, or inexplicable urges to revisit hacky sacking. Forty-five minute vein vanishings are 97% effective, with results appearing immediately. Patients may experience slight swelling, but this minimally invasive procedure results in little to no down time.
Patients should avoid food, alcohol, or chocolate-pudding baths for two hours before procedures. Those with more severe spider veins may require two to three treatments for optimal results, or may need to have further testing done to rule out varicose vein disease.
