Helmed by surgeon Dr. Arun Chowla, Nova Vein Clinic's staff clears skin surfaces of unwanted veins with sclerotherapy and Vein Gogh treatments. During sclerotherapy sessions, a tiny needle injects Asclera or Polidocanol solution into spider veins up to 1-milimeter wide or varicose veins up to 3-milimeters wide, driving away blood and irritating the vein's interior so it collapses more quickly than a Jenga tower of folding chairs. The procedure lasts 15–45 minutes, depending on the size, severity, and sassiness of the offending vessel. While the almost-painless treatment requires no anesthesia, temporary redness and bruising could result, and may require compression and elevation for 24 hours after treatment.
Center for Vein Restoration has recruited a staff of highly accredited surgeons and licensed medical staffers across 20 locations in Maryland, Washington, DC, and Northern Virginia, all focused on offering minimally invasive, same-day outpatient clinical solutions that target varicose veins and spider veins. Board-certified doctors on staff are trained to treat patients who suffer from leg pain and other symptoms of varicose veins. While spider veins?which are typically a cosmetic blight?may be treated with sclerotherapy, varicose veins often require a more involved treatment, such as laser ablation?an outpatient surgical procedure. Aiming to make treatments as minimally invasive as possible, the doctors on staff can also prescribe lifestyle changes for less serious cases, which may include following exercise and nutrition plans or wearing compression stockings.
Football, science, and education have been three of Dr. Armstrong’s leading passions in life. Their confluence led to him to a career in chiropractic where he helps others through their injuries. As a one-time football player, he knows how important it is to help patients with sports-related or traumatic injuries get back to being active and pain free. He also relies on his vast knowledge of human biology—he even taught the subject at the collegiate level—to help patients heal without the use of drugs or surgery. He instead turns to chiropractic care and physical-therapy programs to get his patients up and moving again.
During the traditional Thai yoga-bodywork massage, the signature offering at Malee Thai Massage and Body Work LLC, therapists incorporate guided stretches with focused pressure on energy meridians to loosen muscles and decompress joints. Some of the spa's treatments also incorporate hot stones and other Western methods, and customers can enjoy the warm herbal footbath that starts off every session. Inside, a space awash in warm colors and textiles woven with gleaming thread help make each visit as relaxing as napping on the marshmallow shelf in the supermarket.
First, drink water, and lots of it. Then sip fruit juice or something else sugary—this helps wake the baby up. And finally, do not use the restroom. The result of this preparation?

Bella Baby 4D offers detailed 4D ultrasound imaging services, giving parents-to-be—and up to five friends—life-like views of the person they're soon to meet in photo and video formats.
