What You'll Get
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 $149, you get a half-hour sclerotherapy treatment for spider veins on one leg at Midwest Vascular & Varicose Vein Center (a $350 value). Choose from locations in Bowling Green and Holland.
Helmed by vascular surgeon Dr. Innocent Ubunama, Midwest Vascular & Varicose Vein Center's crew blasts away spider veins to clarify the surfaces of patient gams. Each sclerotherapy session commences with a free consultation to evaluate clingy spider veins and test their jealous reactions to new socks. Once identified, encroaching veins are injected with a liquid that collapses the vein walls, denying entry of fresh blood and causing the traitorous arachnid to disintegrate. The vein-trouncing liquid does not harm the skin, requiring no downtime, no mystical quests to the peak of an unscalable mountain, and no more than compression stockings (not included) to aid vessel disruption post-treatment.
The Midwest Vascular & Varicose Vein Center's waiting room swaddles patients in shafts of natural light, cream-colored walls, and the calming whispers of palm trees. Piscine friends flourish in a large tank that's flanked by leather couches, making the waiting room a prime arena for self-hypnosis via fishtail.

About Midwest Vascular & Varicose Vein Center
Led by Dr. Innocent Ubunama, a general vascular surgeon, the staff at Midwest Vascular & Varicose Vein Center purges legs of visible veins using one of four treatment methods. Sclerotherapy treatments flood spider veins with chemical injections that collapse the blood vessel for absorption into the body. Varicose vein treatments involve radio frequency ablation and use thermal energy to shrink vein walls and seal them closed. Alternatively, during a surgical microphlebectomy, doctors pluck more severe varicose veins from legs with a series of incisions. Patients unable to undergo these procedures can adopt lifestyle changes and wear specialized garments to prevent further damage to their venous system, a noninvasive option.
