If you have spider or varicose veins, then you’re not alone. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates that 50 percent to 55 percent of adult women face abnormal leg veins and around 40 percent to 45 percent of men.

Many people don’t seek treatment because they’re embarrassed, not sure about the effectiveness of treatment or are worried about the procedure being painful. Spectrum Health Medical Group Vein Center’s Christina Hopps, a certified physician assistant, stopped by to answer these questions.

Spectrum Health is running a special discount on sclerotherapy treatments for spider and varicose veins. Now through the end of this week, you can call 616.267.VEIN to schedule your consultation and get 50% off a sclerotherapy session–which can include up to four syringes in a single visit. Calls must be made by Dec. 21, 2018 and consultations must be performed by Jan. 31, 2019 to receive this promotional discount.
