Net-like spider veins entrap legs much like real nets entrap butterflies, hair, and mermaids who swim too close to fishing boats. Escape vein villainy with today’s Groupon: for $199, you get two sclerotherapy spider-vein leg treatments at Vivande Med Spa (a $400 value).
Lynne Brownell, a certified nurse practitioner with 30 years of experience, leads a knowledgeable staff as they deftly work to banish blemishes from clients' skin. During each 30- to 60-minute sclerotherapy treatment, a vascular virtuoso will inject a solution into the vein through a small needle, working to expel the troublesome vessel so that it can go on to star in amateur productions of Charlotte’s Web. Though there is usually little to no downtime, clients may need to wear compression tape after the treatment.
During an initial consultation before the first sclerotherapy session, staff members assess specific skin conditions and determine how many treatments may be required for optimum results. Additionally, the candle-lit spa's Italian-influenced décor and soft music encourage relaxation and further delight dermises by repelling clarinet-phobic arachnids.
