Spider veins look like nets on legs, which can convince the appendages that they're butterflies or babies who kept crawling away. Unmoor locomotors with today's Groupon: for $199, you get a spider-vein treatment package at Women's Health Institute of Macon (up to a $990 value, including taxes). Packages include:

Headed by Dr. Emeka Umerah, Women's Health Institute of Macon provides women with a full suite of clinical and aesthetic health services. Consultations kick off visits, with Dr. Umerah examining spidery veins and recommending a treatment regimen to clear away crisscrossing blood vessels, allowing patients to better display beautiful skin and hyper-realistic spider tattoos. The doctor removes eligible veins with sclerotherapy treatments, injecting tiny amounts of irritating fluid or foam into offending vessels. Sclerotherapy injections cause the veins to collapse, and the body promptly reabsorbs them like an ice skate hurled at the abominable snowman. Many veins require multiple treatments, with each session scheduled at least six weeks apart. All procedures take place in comfortable, private rooms, relaxing fretful psyches and granting a brief respite from the barbershop quartet that follows people on errands.
At Ageless Aesthetics, family physician Dr. Anayo Umerah works with a team to fortify women against the slow advance of time. They utilize chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and prescription skin-care products to help patrons achieve beauty goals or look young enough to sneak back into the National Santa Claus Museum. In treatment rooms, noninvasive Venus Freeze units purr away, delivering pulses of radio and magnetic frequencies to sculpt bodies and tone skin. Dr. Umerah also puts to use experience accrued as a member of the American Academy of Anti-Aging and Aesthetics Medicine, as well as a battery of high-tech devices, Botox, and nutritional supplements.
